Pours an opaque purple/grape juice color with a finger of persistent pinkish head

Smells like fresh crushed grapes (thinking Napa), some blackberry, a little funk

Taste is jammy, lots of blackberry, almost like a pie.

Love the mouthfeel, it’s full bodied, slightly tart, pie consistency without being sweet. Slightly funky

Big thanks to Tim for this can. Cheers man!

I was expecting a pink hue influenced by the dark berry, but this thing is beer red! Straight dark cherry juice color with some opacity and a loose bubbled pink foam on top that lasts.

A very blackberry forward aroma masks nearly everything else. Tart dark fruit with a touch of dusty wheat like grain and a low key earthy finish.

Wow. Tons of blackberry. The sweet fruit is balanced with a mild cereal grain, peppery yeast touches, and herbal hop end.

I can't help but think of this reminding me of a sparkling red wine. Perhaps a holiday Cranberry Martinellis. Super spritzy and carbonated with sweet and tart blasts. Very easy to drink.

I'll say that a lot of the Saison likeness gets lost to the berry dominance, but this is a fun, unique, and tasty beverage.

Cheers.

Drank 6/13/14 @ World of Beer Evanston.

Murky raspberry hue.

Pinkish/cream head; minimal lace.

Mildly tart blackberry nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Smooth, mildly tart blackberry flavors; a pleasant, session-able brew.

Surprisingly my first beer from BW, looking forward to seeing how it is. No canned date.

Pours a nice ruby red color with about two fingers worth of pink hued foamy head. Lace is thin.

Admittedly at first I was just getting a lager nose out of the can... pale malts and grain .. but when poured it transformed into a much better aroma profile. Slightly herbal and grassy, with lots of tart fruits (apple, peach, raspberry), along with some farmhouse yeast presence and clove. An overall mellow nose but transforms really nicely.

Slightly tart, more clove and sour fruits.. biscuity and just a hint of bitterness in the finish. The blackberry comes through more in the flavors , and balances a noticeable malt presence as well.

The body is thin, effervescent, and works nicely for the style. Crisp and dry.

Poured from an undated can into a standard tulip.
Look: pours deep-blood red; about a finger of pinkish off-white head on pouring 2/3 of a can aggressively; weak head retention, minimal lacing.
Smell: as expected in style, the yeast notes are quite apparent, though not completely overpowering; the other half of the smell is fruity, without being tart, reminiscent of boysenberries.
Taste: the taste matches the smell really well; yeast and the fruity non-tart notes dominate; alcohol is very well masked.
Feel: easy going, the body is slightly on the heavier side given the style; medium carbonation.
Overall: a really enjoyable dark canned saison, really consistent out of the fridge and as it warms a bit. Would buy again

Got as a gift from RaulMondesi. 16 ounce can into tulip glass, no can dating. Pours fairly hazy dark ruby red/purple color with a 1 finger dense light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a thin spotty lace cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of juicy blackberries, peach, plum, apricot, cherry, pear, red apple, red grape, fruit skin/seeds, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, blackberries, and bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big juicy blackberries, peach, plum, apricot, cherry, pear, red apple, red grape, fruit skin/seeds, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate peppery yeast spiciness and light fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of blackberries, peach, plum, apricot, cherry, pear, red apple, red grape, fruit skin/seeds, pepper, clove, wheat, cracker, biscuit dough, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, blackberries, and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/spiciness balance; and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from yeast spiciness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/sticky, fairly crisp, and lightly acidic/tangy balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 7%. Overall this is a delicious fruited saison. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, blackberries, and bready malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink with the modestly spicy/drying finish. Definitely a ton of blackberries in this brew, but it still feels like a legit Saison. Plenty of fruity/spicy yeast character, perfectly balanced with fruit and bready malts. A very enjoyable offering, and unique style example.

On tap, pours with a half inch of foam and is a beautiful ruby pinkish red color. Medium effervescence and definitely a fruity, light beer. As another reviewer mentioned, this might not be for everyone. Slightly sour with plenty of blackberry notes. Light and crisp.
