This dark saison is a malty ale with hints of figs, raisins, and dark fruit cake.
Complex and interesting. Only mildly funky.

Poured into a Haw River Farmhouse Ales teku glass. Bottlecap says Jun 2017.

A- Gusher alert, but not too bad. Pours a dark brown color with a full two fingers worth of light brown head that retains decently before quickly popping away to a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a wispy pattern of sheer surface foam. Not-so-resilient lacing leaves small clots behind.

S- Incredibly musty, funky aroma full of wet hay and a metallic smell. Also some dark fruit, molasses and fig. Very unique.

T- Pretty strong sourness with more of that metallic note found in the smell. After the palate acclimates, a high drinkability is achieved as I find myself craving more and more sips. The alcohol is superbly well-hidden behind the acidity of the wild yeast. Notes of red grape, blackberry and even a bit of blueberry.

M- Dry almost to the point of being chalky. Medium carbonation and a body that leans toward the fuller side.

O- A very original take on a Flanders Oud Bruin. Has a tannic red wine characteristic to it that you don't find as often in the style. Surprisingly smooth for how strong and complex it is.

Poured a brown body with good head and minor lace ring.
Has a tart/sour aroma with hints of caramel malt sweetness and dark fruits like figs.
Light to medium bodied beer that is juicy and t art that maintains a sharp, crisp bite to it.
Balanced as the low-key sugary sweet malts keep the sour patch flavors (tastes like sour apple and cherry) from making beer too sour.
A nice sour that is light and maintains a little bit of fullness and sweetness.
