Bottle to tulip (thanks Mike) Consummation: Light lemony brett ale Adjunct: A little thin and as a result it ends abruptly; rosy yellow with a thin bright white head and a cloudy appearance, but no particulates; lemon, peach, green grapes and brett aromas.

Bottle from Greg (gregwilsonstl) -- cheers! Despite a number of references to Brett all over the labels, this was a nice, light, pretty clean saison with just a little funky kick at the end. It was great on a hot day!

From notes. Enjoyed this one at the Brew Crew Bash in Ann Arbor on May 21. This one was poured from a 750 mL bottle. The pour is a cloudy pale yellow, almost straw color with a creamy off white head that just lasts and lasts. Iím not too big a fan of sours that leave a head on them. The aroma is very musty. There is a light yeasty funk to it, and itís a little strange. There is a fair bit of straw and barnyard, mixed in with a little lemongrass to help break it up. The back end is a little floral for my liking as well. Itís a strange mix of smells here. The flavor is decent. It starts out with a tart citrus zest and moves through some fruit skins before coming back to a decent funkiness. Itís got the floral character at the end here, but itís much more straight forward than the nose, which I like. The mouth feel is a little heavy and under carbonated. The aftertaste is definitely acidic, but leaves a lemongrass kind of dry funkiness through the finish. Meh.

Keg at Bridge - STL. Pours unclear yellow-gold with a creamy topping. Lightly funky in the nose with notches of ripe lemon, sweat, pale wood, apple. Medium sweet flavour with more ripe, lightly tart lemon notes, old citrus rind, damp wood, hay, green apple skins. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Tangy and cleansing on the finish, with more lemon, just a touch of acetic acid, more hay, subtle woody dryness. Nice overall.
