Had on tap at Max's during BBW 2013 (from notes, 10/27/13).
A: Slightly hazy copper with great lacing.
S: Funky, yeasty and bready.
T: A yeasty farmhouse flavor dominates but I get no brett at all and was really in the mood for some. No slight tart or funk at all.
M: Smooth with massage bubbles.
O: A good pale ale, that was more saison than anything with brett.
Serving type: on-tap

a near perfect beer for thanksgiving. a little brett, not too funky or wild, but definitely more complex than your standard holiday swill. hazy light amber color, copper tinted, with an inch or so of thick white almost nitro looking head. the nose is as much Belgian yeast as it is brett, mostly very light malts, pale, and herbal on the hop front with a distinct spice on the back end. the flavor is basically the same as the smell, but the Belgian yeast and brett do some outstanding tandem work in fermentation. its a little bigger in body than I thought it would be, and has very lively carbonation. its fruited and spiced in at first, and the slightly tannic wild side comes out just in the finish with maybe a splash of vinegar, nothing harsh or abrasive. overall another beauty from perennial. maybe not as interesting as some others, but its a good potential gateway wild beer, given its noticeable but approachable brett characteristics. good stuff with the turkey!
