A - Pours a hay/straw in color with a frothy white head.

S - Good amount of bready yeast, slight vinegar & oak aspect. Loving the funk of the nose.

T - The oak is a lot more prominent and tartness to the front. Bready yeasty compliments it perfectly along with a crisp apple character on the finish.

M - Light body, high carbonation. Perfect for the style.

O - Interesting brew that will keep any sour fan interested.

I drank this at the crooked stave tap room a very small and charming spot, way smaller than most would imagine. The appearance was a semi dark golden orange color with a little bit of white head. Smell was citrus tartness but not a whole lot of funk like a belgian saison. Taste was exceptional, very tart citrusy and smooth. Incredibly easy drinking beer. Second taste and I'm getting a more vinious quality along with the tartness. I like this more than boulevards brett saison.

A - Pours a cloudy, darker orange with a large foamy egg shell head with good retention and lots of lacing.

S - Brett, oak, subtle fruit, earthy.

T - Soft fruit, brett, oak barrel and nice earthy-farmhouse. WOW!

D - Silky smooth and decent carbonation with a lighter body. Perfect.

O - A real treat. Silky smooth and perfect fruit, barrel and funk.
Thanks Rack!
