i hope this one makes it to bottle, its so delicious. a sage based wild ale, blonde and probably comprised primarily of wheat, this is a very light and refreshing drink, perfect for summer, perfect for food, and on par with some of the best crooked stave beers to date. its hazy but vibrant golden yellow in color, with a tall white head in the tulip glass that never really relaxes. notes of fresh sage, not super pungent but definitely unmistakable, and wild brett make up the nose, and the flavor follows. the herbal element is all up front, letting the brett finish it up. creamy feel from the wheat malt and medium carbonation, while there is also a tartness to the finish, definitely short of sour, but plenty funky. no doubt about which brewery made this brew! the wild yeast complexion in the finish is great, and the beer overall is extremely dry. there are more and more sage beers out all the time, stillwater, perennial, and epic all come to mind, but this one is in a class of its own.
