truly a stunning specimen, not overly aggressively priced down at brewers republic in colorado springs. surprised to see a bottle of this on their menu, i think it was brewed a few years ago and not since, although i could be wrong (often am). loved this beer, it was on the menu as a chardonnay barrel aged double ipa, not a flanders red as listed here, but the different is really less than you would think, for how far apart we think those styles are. hazy almost pink orange colored brew, my glass had a big white head on it, my friends glass looked almost still, strange, but the mouthfeel in both glasses was very much alive. effervescent enormous bubbles in this, never quitting even as we drank slowly. there is a fruity hoppy nose on this, way more hops than expected for its age, but that lends credence to the hop retention wild ale theory, which i now fully subscribe to. the chardonnay is obvious on the nose, acidic white fruit and oak, its way up front. the hops are fruity, not bitter, juicy, almost west coast style, kind of cool in a beer that is most definitely a wild ale. lacto and bretty tang on the nose, quite puckery in the finish too, i love the yeast these guys use, and this is another cool blend i have to imagine. hoppy in taste too, but more in the middle than the finish, and the wine acidity works perfectly with both the enormous carbonation levels and the souring yeasts. oaky for sure, this beer is definitely one of a kind. it has mild vinegar sour notes a la flanders red, and also has some of the same deeper malts, albeit in much lower dosage. cool style fusion, excellent beer from a rock star brewery. id love to get a bottle for the cellar!

Another solid offering to my pallet from these guys, or should I say Dames!
My third of their beers and I am even more amazed! I am starting to really get it now. Some times there is a GOOOOOD reason WHY a beer might cost $25 to $30 a bottle! I have been bold and well rewarded!

Weird murky color with a different funk then I have ever smelled but making it inviting. A well balanced ale with just the nicest sourness that imparts a taste I could not pin down. Maybe a current or elderberry kind of passion fruit thing around the edges of my tong on each sip.
This was a very well balanced soured ale that never got too much of any one thing.
I can't say they got some style right here but they sure made me one of the finest sours I ever had!
It's a shame it was a one time brew. So glad I got the last on the shelf when I did.
(I can't wait to try their next offering. My #4)

From 01/10/15 notes. 8 oz. pour of this on tap at Torst in Brooklyn.

Pours a hazy reddish orange color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident. Lightly tart dark fruits, fruity malts, oak, light vinegar, cherries, tart berries, light funk, and earthy notes. Medium body and low carbonation, light acidity. Taste is more tart, though not too crazy.

Overall quite good, esp when the cherries come out in the taste as it warms up. Not a sour bomb but very good, worth checking out for sure.

Some gentleman shared this at the Dive. Thanks!

A - Poured into a tulip a hazy golden hue with a fluffy two finger head that leaves a thick blanket.

S - Aromas of rather funky saison notes, horse blanket, light lemon, earthy.

T - Taste is nice and funky, very funky saison, light lemons, earthy barnyard very nice.

M - Mouthfeel is super carbonated was a slow gusher.

O - Overall this was a very tasty beer, think this is mislabeled on here as a Flanders this is not. Clearly this is a funky saison. Tasty.
