Notes/Commercial Description:
Don't know what to call it besides a Brett Beer. This one gets aged for 3 months in oak barrels with Brettanomyces Lambicus, a cool yeast that gives this beer a wonderfully pretty aroma and flavor that everyone better like or else I'll look you up and teach you a lesson.

On tap at The Bridge in St. Louis.

A - Poured a clear, golden yellow color with a small, white head of bubbly foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of spices and a touch of funkiness. Some caramel, too.

T - It tasted slightly funky with a spicy bite and sweet caramel.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is interesting. Didn't taste much like a saison.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottled on 01/20014. 750mL bottle with cap. Bright, pale yellow with a slight haze, thin white lace. Lemon zest aroma, yeast, slight funk, white pepper, and cidery edge. Thin, crackery, semi-tart, lemony, stone fruits, nectarine, peach skin, phenolic/medicinal, oaky, pepper, apples, vinous, dry, cidery and earthy finish.

Acidic, but not overwhelming. Barrel-aging really helped mellow and meld things. Lots of stone fruit character. Quite enjoyable.
