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 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A - Pours a golden yellow with a two-finger foamy white head. The head dissapates quickly leaving lots of spotty lacing.

S - Aromas of lemon, hay, and Brett funkiness.

T - The flavors follow the aroma: green apples, lemon, brett funkiness, and white wine. The finish has a light alcohol burn.

M - Light bodied with high carbonation. Mouthfeel is very crisp with a dry finish.

O - This is a dangerously drinkable beer at 9.3%. Very crisp and refreshing.
