Pastel salmon-ruby with a creamy persistent white collar

On the nose, I'm getting a bit of an aerated grapefruit note before the cinnamon dusted crust comes in with faint cherry.

Even more toasted brown sugar and cinnamon crust-like malt comes out in taste, with the slightly tart cherry following. That classic marzipan that's often present in a cherry sour tries to come through, but it's a bit watery, while having a firm and substantial carbonation through a moderate body, finishing semi-wet.

500mL bottle from Bruisin Ales (Asheville, NC). 12.25. Bottled 8/30/17. Served in a Wicked Weed snifter. Enjoyed 12/10/17.

Pours a vibrant, nearly opaque pink with a finger and a half of pink tinged white head. Those bubbles shrink to a few small islands and a thin band, imparting a couple dots of lace.

Smells of cherries, wet oak, eathy Brett, dried apple and a little pale grain. The cherry, Brett and oak is a nice mix.

Tastes of cherry, faint clove, funky tart Brett, a slight floral note, wet wood and a bit of earthy leather. That delicious cherry remains right out front where it belongs.

Medium light feel with peppy carbonation. Aftertaste of cloved pierced cherries and Bretty oak.

Wicked Weed has been doing some strong work with these fruited foeder Brett beers. Ferme de Chien is my second favorite in the Ferme series, with cherry character aplenty to keep me interested.

Poured from a tall bottle into a Duvel tulip. Love the dog-themed artwork holding a bough of cherries.

L: Clear golden pink pour. 2 fingers of foamy white head. Falls fast with a solid ring of lacing.

S: Tart cherries and funk. Mild lemon and green fruit.

T/F: Follows the nose pretty nicely. Light grains... tart baking cherries. Not a crazy pucker, but tart enough to notice. Brett character... lemon, funk, and hay. Unripened fruits, green apple peel. Light in body... soapy carbonation a bit. The finish is tart cherry juice.

O: A solid brett Saison... the cherries complement it nicely. Not overwhelmingly sour or cherry so pretty easy to drink. Not a Belgian elite but one I'd definitely have again.

Bottle dated 8.30.17

Poured into a teku glass

Faint rose/ light pink frothy one finger foam cap settles to a small island of bubbles.translucent reddish liquid, good carbonation

Aroma of Brett , whiff of stone fruit

The tartness overpours any of the fruit, hint of cherries

Tart , crisp, mildly puckering, not astringent

Nice beer
