On tap at 2nd Shift festival. What a wonderful subtle brett beer. Saison spiced aroma with a citrus, funky taste. Perfect for St. Louis summers, and I could drink it all day long.

750 ml bottle. Pours a fizzy and hazy gold. Head is pretty massive at first, but dies to a finger or so before Iím seated at the computer. Aromas are striking... Itís not every day I say "Oh, man..." out loud when trying a beer and Iím not quite sure why they tickled my fancy, but I pick up kind of a funky pineapple and lemon thing with a little grass and a hint of barn. Not a nose like every other saison, thatís for sure. First sip reveals that it is a very thin beer... it has a lot of flavor for the ABV and mouthfeel of water, but it is still pretty thin. Lots of pineapple and lemon with a hint of brett funkiness in the finish. Itís crisp and refreshing and if it were cheaper I would love this as a lawnmower beer. As is, itís darn nice for those 95 degree days on vacation in St. Louis.

Bottle thanks to Chris. Pours a cloudy yellow with no head. The aroma is lacto, brett, oak, funk, lemon. Thin mouthfeel with nice tart lemon, strong brett, funk, oak, and light sourness. Very good.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2014 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 doesnít 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. Re-Rate: Yeah, so clean and nice. Citrusy, tart, dry, refreshing. Lovely.

Sampled on tap at the 2nd annual Urban Chestnut Wolpertinger party in a dimple mug. It poured a hazy straw colour with weak white foam. Enticing aromas of husky grains, black pepper, clove, noble-ish hops, composty hints of Brett. Delicious flavours of malt and tangy hops bitterness, mineral water essence, smooth acidity, slight sourness reminiscent of lemonade, complex Belgian and wild yeast characteristics. Light body, spritzy carbonation, well-balanced tart aftertaste which eventually finished bone dry. Table-strength but distinctive, extremely tasty. Excellent example of a Belgian farmhouse style. One of my favorites of the day. Iíd like a big bottle of this stuff, for sure.

Aroma of sweet green apple wheaty funky and citric, on the muted side though. Appears surprisingly clear and straw colored with sticky lacing. Taste is soft wheaty lactic sour plush mouthfeel. Not too dry definitely citrus resonates.

vyvvy (3999) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 29, 2012
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.

GT2 (8440) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 29, 2013
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.

The appearance of this beer is a foggy golden color with a large white head, and the aroma has definite currents of Brett, citrus, and spices. The taste is quite sour and mildly sweet, and the palate is combines a sour finish, soft carbonation, medium body, and a thin texture.
