Had this on tap at Hopcat
A very dark brown beer, almost completely opaque. The head was white and dissipated quickly. I always love the contrast between the beer and head, so I watched this one a little bit =)
The smell.. Ohh! Sour grape! That's always how my nose perceives sour beers. Scent should build anticipation for drinking, and ohh it did!
Taste: Medium carbonation, but with a sour you can't really tell where the carbonation begins and ends due to the sour characteristic of the beer itself.
No fruit in the taste, at least to my palate. Just beautiful sour wild yeasts, my favorite kind! Medium sour grain taste, very tingly on the tongue.
This reminded me of how a really really advanced slightly-boozy sourdough starter tastes. Tingly on the tongue, bit of sour grapes in the nose. Especially with rye, that's how you know your starter will bring great taste to your bread.
If you also love sour beers, I think you'll also be pleased with this one.
Serving type: on-tap

Bam Noire pours a darker amber color with a HUGE foamy lacing head. There is a sweet aroma with HUGE Belgian candy notes. The taste is very sweet, huge Belgian candy flavors, and a creamy yeasty note. The body is a little flat, and a little watery aftertaste. Overall, big sweet flavors, and a very light aftertaste.
Serving type: bottle
