Camoufleur is our new brett saison. It is step-mashed and brewed with 100% pilsner malt — very old world in execution! Spicy, funky, and laced with noble hop aromas. We blended this saison with just a smidgen of barrel-aged golden sour to achieve the ultimate balance and complexity. Dry hopping with Saphir hops brings extra tangerine and spice notes.

Pours a medium golden color, massive white foamy head. Funky citrus aroma. Very funky favor, light citrus, earthy. Medium carbonation. Overall an ok saison, this one has aged a year so it is not at its best.

Bottle. CLEAR golden (I decant because that's how I like it) with dense rocky head and lace. Hay farmhouse funk and lemon pastry aroma. Similar medium light fruity sweetness with apricot. Citrusy dry finish. Light and champagne lively but still soft. TOTALLY FUCKING INCREDIBLE..

Picked this up recently at Grimm as I'm starting to get back into their bottled offerings. Lovely label and the liquid inside was on part with it, as it had a soft and floral feeling to it. Not terribly spicy for something of this sort but it had the taste I was expecting and it was so easygoing that *almost* made me forget how cold it's been outside!

The appearance of this beer was nice - muted, golden, and with some sediment floating in it. Not much settled down at the bottom of my pint glass but I didn't mind it being present at all. Lots of outdoor funk, yeast, and a bit of potpourri in the nose as the taste was quite wild as well. Some honeysuckle and hyacinth came in with a buttery mouthfeel tying everything in together. Low on spice and alcohol, the body was nicely balanced and there was plenty of soapy rings that fell into the next, as the mouthfeel was filling without feeling heavy.

The amount of booze present was just right as well as I really couldn't taste it, behind the yeast and natural-feeling notes. Not the best example of this style that I've had but it was quite enjoyable and easy to quaff, and not that dry in the aftertaste. A bit more fruit would have livened this up quite nicely!

Brewed with brettanomyces, this is a hazy golden ale with a coupla fingers of head off a measured pour into a tulip... Moderate bitterness mutes the mild fruit impressions of murky grapefruit and subtle stone fruit... Herbal, grassy and floral aromas overlay a nice funk from the yeast... Soft and fuzzy, medium-light-bodied and amply carbonated... A nice saison...
