I also had one of my swap beers this evening, Black Bretty (saison) from Jerry aka ynotbrusum. This one had about 3/4 inch of fruit sediment at the bottom of the bottle, so I was warned to be very careful on pouring. I got a full glass of bright, clear, cranberry-red-colored beer with almost no head. It looked a bit effervescent. Very pretty.
Aroma was fruit (difficult to identify, but berry-like) and sour, and very pleasant; inviting. No vinegar, mostly lactic sourness and some Brett funk. I checked the notes and found that the fruit used was indeed blackberry, which came through more in the taste.
Flavor had low malt character, fairly strong lactic/Brett sourness along with the berries and just a hint of enteric in the finish.
Tart finish, with a bit of bark-like astringency in the aftertaste and light body. Sourness was mouth coating especially in the aftertaste.
I liked this beer a lot. I wish that I had opened it with the turkey feast on Thanksgiving. It would have been perfect.
