On tap at the Belmont Fermentorium.

Red with thin white head. Rich, jammy raspberry with some peach. Red wine barrel and funk are present, wiping out base beer. Tart, funky and with plenty of jammy raspberry up front, minimal seed tannins. The grainy depth of base beer is apparent on palate, lending a pleasant heft to the fruit. Bright and tart on finish, just a hair watery. Quite excellent.

a rye based grisette, i thought this was an excellent beer. i think the rye is really light in it, all the malt here is very delicate in feel, but its peculiarly delicate in flavor too, and while i do get a little of that dusty spice from the pale rye, i think it could be ramped up quite a bit in here to make a more interesting base. that said, the beer is pretty darn interesting already, even without heavy rye in it. its gt a very old world flavor to me, hay and straw, french type saison yeast, some bretty funk, some light white wine type acidity too, its really good. some hops in here too, which i think give it a needed spike of freshness, make it springy and light. good bitterness there at the end too, dry with the saison type yeast and the farmy brett coming together, and a bit of citrusy acidity here too. clean and dry in the finish, well carbonated, and kind of fluffy feeling to me, a little bit of rye malt flavor lingers after the swallow with the bitterness, and overall this was a very enjoyable example of the style, well layered with flavor and easy drinking. old worldy and well built. quality stuff here from modern times!

750 ml bottle poured into pint glass

A: Soapy white head that settles to a film. Body is a slightly hazy tan yellow in color.

S: Light malts. A little dough, honey, some tartness, a little lemon.

T: Nice mild flavors of vinegar, lemon, Brady malts, a little hay funk, nice tartness.

M: good carbonation a little lively on the tongue body is lighter to medium in feel.

O: it’s not a bad beer it’s not amazing either and for the cost it’s a pretty solid pass.

Hazy pale yellowish with short-lived swirls of foam in the Brigand chalice. Very light body with a slight carbonation. Most prominent taste is something lemony. Then it's barley water, liquid after you've steamed the green beans. Moderately tart. There's a little lemony cereal aroma.

Tart and bitter and I don't taste the rye. Aftertaste is just bitter, like when the aspirin lingers on you tongue on the way down the hatch. I am glad this has made some people happy. I hope they work on this style some more, and ditch the . From the 750 ml bottle purchased at Barons Market on West Point Loma. This version is 5.4%.
