22oz. bomber: This one was hiding at the back of the fridge, where it has been since I got it. It pours a fairly clear, golden color. There was very little head on it, and left no lacing. Interesting aroma. Hint of sour cherries, some oak, faint spices. Earthy, a bit funky, but doesn’t smell infected. Taste is interesting. Some tart cherry, bready, some candi sugar. It’s not very sweet, but there seems to be an underlying subtle sickly sweetness to it. It should probably stay retired.

Review from 3/2010 notes. Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow amber, one finger white head and lacing. Aroma of cherry, citrus and esters. Mild saison start, tart sour middle and sour and bitter finish. A bit too sour on the finish for me, although the body and start are OK.
