adamjackson (1198) – Canaan, New Hampshire, USA – MAY 1, 2013

Acquired in a trade almost a year ago. Enjoyed at 60F in a Cantillon Tulip with my GF…fully expecting a vinegar bomb.A – Slightly hazy burnt lemon appearance. 3 finger fluffy head that fades and crackles like soda-pop. Not a gusher but a lot of carbonation in this bottle.

S – sigh..slight band-aid nose, heavy raspberry puree and lactic acid

T – Wow. Vinuous and tart! Really special. I get a ton of oaky characters, grape tannins and saison body. Lovely raspberry taste at the middle and finish with a hint of cabernet characters. Pretty special.

M – big carbonation in the glass and on the swish. Medium body, thick for a sour fruit beer

O – This is not my favorite bruery beer but it’s pretty far up there. Really something special.
