Notes/Commercial Description:
Epic Brewing Company’s latest barrel-aged beer brings something new—wild yeast. This brew is a collaboration ale with Crooked Stave Artisan Brewing of Fort Collins, Colorado. Chad Yakobson, brewmaster/owner of Crooked Stave, is well known for his skill and knowledge in the brewing of sour and Brettanomyces driven beers. The beer was brewed at Epic by the two brewers. Kevin Crompton, Epic’s brewmaster, and Chad spent several weeks working on the recipe and selecting the proper Brett strains and barrels for the beer to morph from a golden Sasion into a Saison-Brett Golden Ale.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

22 oz poured into a tulip glass. Release #4 9.1% abv. Thin white head which fades quickly. Nice light golden color. Aroma of brett funk, lactic tart and citrus. Taste is tart with nicely balanced brett funk and subtle spice. Finish is dry with lingering tartness and spice with a slight alcohol burn. Very effervescent. Good beer not terribly complex. Drinkable. Happy to get ahold of a crooked stave beer in the Seattle market.
