3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at The Bridge in St Louis. Clear golden pour. Weak foam, swaths of white lace. Nose up front is a tad sharp pickle focused, buttery white wine, buttered Hawaiian sweet roll, mild starfruit juice. Taste is refreshing, starfruit juice abounds, pineapple spritzer, bubbly carbonation on the tongue. Palate gives yellow fruit juice, pineapple, lactic acid. Hints of spicy dry wood finish. Actually quite impressive.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Guest tap at Perennial. Pours a cloudy pale yellow-gold color with a small bone white head. Aroma of grapes, dry and bready malts, straw, farmhouse funk, lemon citrus, and a little yogurt. The flavor follows suit but doesn’t quite come across as crisp and fresh as the nose. Light-bodied, with a dry, funky mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Really nice bretty saison. Could drink this one all day.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Hazy straw golden. A nose that is sour, funky, fruity, and yeasty. Some lemongrass. A thin feel and almost no carbonation. Subtlevlemon flavors, grass. This is long on refreshing if short on flavor. It is a nice summer beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours yellow / golden with a modest white head. The aroma has light funk, sharpness, hints of chardonnay, dry grapes and acidity. It has a medium crisp body with lots of frothy sharp carbonation. The flavor begins with some brett funk, pale malt, pepper, oakiness, bugs, lemon and chardonnay. The finish is dry, crisp and has some light fruitiness. Excellent saison from 2nd shift.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Bailey’s Range in Downtown st Louis June 2012-pours hazy dark yellow with a fizzy large bubbled white smooth head. Wow, thats a different nose-lemons, GOP, funk, slight hay/barnyard character. flavors show the hay/barnyard and GOP quite well. Long lemony dry finish. lingering GOP long into the finish. damn, this is a very dry brett beer. The brett character isnt huge in this beer, say like a Rayon Vert, but this is probably the most sessionable brett beer i have ever had. well done 2nd shift!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour is a cider lookalike with a fizzy white head. Aroma is lots of funk, white wine and lemon juice. Flavor is bretty with some citrus and a palate cleaning chalky malt. Not overly sour or bretty but just enough to make it above par.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It poured a golden color with a small white head. The aroma was of fruit and herbs with a slight tartness. The taste was a little more herbs, apples and a bit of honey on the finish, but still moderately dry. A very tasty Saison.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Simple and refreshing brett farmhouse-style beer. Hazy and straw-pale. Lightly tart and crisply bitter with subtle vinous barnyard. Nicely dry. Addictive and likable stuff that could be a vehicle for bringing a bit of funk to a wider audience.
