750ml bottle, served in a snifter glass.

Pours a light straw-yellow body, slightly hazy, one finger white head with good retention and a bit of lacing. Smells of dry lemon, touch of leather, wheat. Like a spiceless witbier. Heavy Brettanomyces presence. Flavour is as expected based on the nose- wheat and traces of heavy Brettanomyces activity. The flavour is more subtle and thinned out, with touch of lemon, light leather and a bit of mustiness. Mouthfeel is appropriately thinner bodied per the Brettanomyces, well carbonated with a nice light leathery bitterness on the finish.

Appearance: Served up a soft yellow-hued body, lightly cloudy and crowned with an inch of airy, white foam.

Smell: A near neutral wheat base, a shave of lemon rind and a finespun hint of funky brett.

Taste: Soft, subtle wheatiness and ultra-lite, ultra-fine pale malts given the merest hint of powdered sugar, its sweetness gone in a flash. Light, lemony citrus character. There's definitely a brett-derived funkiness to it, but it's particularly clean in nature - if you were to assign a basement quality to it, it'd be a very well-kept, finished basement, if you were to ascribe a cobweby aspect to it, it'd be those faux cobwebs you buy in bags at Halloween and not the ones littered with gloomy-looking spiders and discarded bug carcasses. Dayspring finishes as dry as straw in a barn with a zip of carbonation.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-high, active carbonation.

Overall: A soundly refreshing, charming brew.

thanks to homeboy josh for sharing this one. a special beer, worthy of a lot more attention than its gotten to date. i love these grain forward session wild ales, bretty and funky and light and interesting. this is as much a grisette as anything else in terms of style, but thats a lot less relevant than what it tastes like. quite obviously wheat based, but really pale and simple in its grain composition, maybe a hint of spice to it, but no rye immediately evident. the brett is clean too, maybe a brett C type, its moderately funky, but the genius is in how dry it is. its carbonated like the most aggressive champagne, and is perhaps the most dry beer i have ever had, just straight gone after the splash in the mouth, i mean, super quick, drier than dry, insane really, reminds me of some of those F art beers from tool. farmy in the harvest sense, freshest grain and saison funk, but light and summery too. my first beer from these guys, a pretty special one. i was surprised people in our group didnt like it more, i thought it was quite distinct and really well executed. this is the kind of beer i really like to drink though, and the hops on it are robust for what it is. i think its a real fun recipe, and i would but this again for sure if it were for sale here. mouthfeel is epic.

"Brettanomyces, local wheat, earthy funk". Brewed in the style of a Grisette ale, available in 750ml. bottles as a limited release beer, with locally sourced wheat from Danielsville, Georgia.

Poured from a 750 ml. bottle to a tulip glass. Served above 58 degrees Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a frothy head of an ecru white color over a mildly hazy pale straw amber body with ample carbonation. Retention is average and lacing is light and spotty. 3.5

(Smell) Wheat malts and light grains, Brettanomyces funk, peppery spice, pear juice, light fruity hop profile, mildly dry. Potency is moderate. 3.75

(Taste) Malted wheat, pale malts with a light body, light funk, moderate yeast presence with bold spiciness, moderate cider fruits and a moderate dryness. 3.5

(Mouthfeel) Texture is silky, clean, moderately dry. Carbonation is high, generating a moderate frothiness and a briskly crisp finish. Body is medium for the style, light/medium overall. Balance is moderately spicy and phenolic over sweet and bitter. Alcohol presence is very low and there are no off characters. 3.75

(Overall) It's a pretty interesting ale, not bad but I'm not terribly impressed with its simplicity, either. There isn't much impact from the Brett strain in this bottle, but the yeast generates a strong spiciness and phenolic profile for this beer, which isn't countered very well with the remaining ingredients. 3.5
