One of Bam's brown eyes is, in fact, black. When mischief reigns supreme, it positively glows. Dedicated to the dark side; smooth, dark, incredibly delicious as only a Jack Russell with bat wings can be.

    Cloudy dark copper pour with a frothy two-finger slightly off-white head that left some decent lacing behind. Sour, sweet and spicy aromas. Flavor is somewhat sweet upfront with a slightly sour edge, flavors of mildly sour fruit, yeast, caramel malt, light clove and earth. Highly carbonated with light to medium body. Overall it was pretty good.. not great.. but good enough.

    Pours out a dark Amber color with a thick massive foamy head. The aroma of faint light hops. The mouthfeel a tad sour and just a bit thin. The taste is not vey impressive and pretty plain.

    From Embrace the Funk Fest. A black Saison, ok. Pours dark brown, like a very thin Porter, tight bubbly head, some lacing. Funky spicy initial nose and flavors, black pepper, earthy funkiness, light sourness, zesty, all from a dark Saison? Yes. Better than I expected.

    Sampled from bottle. Try this beer. Do I really need to type a long review to say if you like sour beer to try this one? Try this one. Again and again

    First sample from Jolly. 50% off on clearance. Probably the only way I would have sampled this. This isn't one of my favorite styles, but a decent representation. Thought that this was closer to 7-8% when I sampled, which explains why I drank so fast and wasn't as buzzed as I thought I'd be. Split into a few glasses, so each one had more sediment and more sour to it. Not quite a flemish, similar in style. Medium to dark brown appearance. Fruity/tart aroma and flavor.

    Aroma is fruity, mainly apple and banana, with a yeasty undertone and a hint of miso. It pours a rich, tempting, dark mahogany with a pale tan head that does not stick around too long. Flavor is mainly fruity, like sour apple with banana and yeast notes and a hint of caramel. Texture is fairly fizzy, just a teensy on the thin side but still good.

    Sampled on 7/11/2011. This saison pours a medium to dark amber brown color from a 750ml bottle. Large sized white/beige foamy head, with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity and sweet, funky and tart. A medium to light bodied sasion. The malts are fruity and sweet, funky and tart. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy. Lively carbonation. Fruity and sweet tasting and then tart and funky. A great summer session beer, its light and refreshing and even though its very tart and funky its all well balanced. Add to that its only 4.3% alcohol makes this a beer you could drink a lot of on a warm summer evening. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean, tart and dry. Aftertaste is tart and fruity.

    Don't let the darkness fool you, there is a bit of a roast malt content but it's still a funky, tart Jolly Pumpkin beer through and through. Wild enough to intrigue, but with enough restraint to be able to enjoy a bottle or two with ease.

    Bottled@omhper (thanks hanniku!). Deep amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is spicy, quite sour and also has some mild caramelly notes. Flavour is quite spicy, a bit brettlike sourness, berries and quite rich on the hops as well. Spicy and quite strange.

    750ml bottle -

    Just an amazing beer full of funky/tart goodness, yet still so drinkable and enjoyable. Shared w/ my brother while smoking som babybacks for the Raider tailgate. Aroma was dusty, slightly citrusy with some pear/apple juice with some light malt-vinegar note. Totally different that what one would expect looking at a beer as dark as this. Creamy dense white head, milky with a black body. Musty flavor, dry with just a touch of funky/citrus. Very light touch of roasty-dry bitterness comes thru. Really a beautiful session beer. Easy to drink large amounts of this.
