Notes: Barrel-aged saison with boysenberry

The beer inside this bottle is our homage to the brewers who came before us; a tribute to those who paved the road on which we walk and discreetly left a breadcrumb trail for us to follow. It is for the beer geeks, the tickers and raters, and the newbies who opened their minds to try something new and unfamiliar. It is something that comes from our heart, an offering of appreciation for the supporting us and allowing us to play in the game. The beer in this bottle wouldn't exist with out you.

With appreciation,

On tap at Beermongers.

A mildly hazy red with a dense, off-white head with good retention and lacing. The nose is a blend of berries and lactic acid, moderately sour,old vanilla a moderate skin and seed note. The palate opens sour and fruity with a semi ripe berry note, a blend of floral raspberries, raw strawberry, mild red wine, a little vanilla, some semi ripe blackberry. Mild funk with a little earth
Drying, sour on the finish. A little too sour IMO. Solid.

Foggy pale red with a thin bubbly ring, this is sharply sour and oaky. Almost vinegary but not quite, notes of sesame seed, red grape and raspberry meet with a little barnyard funk as a smoky char lies in the background of the medium thin body.

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Sante Adairius tulip glass. Not sure which batch this is, it could be 2 or 3. Thanks Jake for hooking me up with this bottle.

Pours a cloudy maroon body with a very small white head that reduces quickly to leave a bit of spotty lacing and a thin ring of retention. Doesn't look too carbonated.

Aromas are fruity and ripe, very berry forward with a good amount of farmhouse character, vinous, red wine, tannic, hay fields, lactic tartness, cherries.

On the tongue it's lightly tart with berries and cherry up first, tannic and dry, followed by red wine barrels and a lactic astringency, finishing lightly funky and juicy. Mouthfeel is lacking a bit, it could use some more carbonation but the body is medium-light and easy to drink.

Overall I enjoyed this - my only complaint is the lack of carbonation. Good flavor and balance, not overly sour and lots of berries.

750ml bottle, served in a teku glass. Pours a clear, darker reddish-purple body, one finger thick white head, good retention, bits of lacing. Smell is heavy on the boysenberry, with a nice earthy fruitiness present as well as a bit of oak, touch of red wine and tannins, bit of fruity grape and lactic acid. Flavour is a nice fruity boysenberry, with a bit of earthy astringency, nice oak, tannic with a bit of vanillin on the backend, moderate acetic tartness hanging around throughout the palate. Light lemon as well. Mouthfeel is lighter medium bodied, good carbonation, dry boysenberry tartness with a fair bit of red wine tannins lingering on the finish. Nice complexity, with an interesting earthy astringency that takes a few sips to get used to.
