3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Denver Tap room - new batch, 9.3% - clear light gold - surprisingly light, clean, and crisp for something so strong - mildly phenolic brett funkiness up front, followed by moderate peach sweetness, finishing with strong, medium-dry white wine and a tingly acidity - nicely done.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
As I pop the cap the beer slowly tries to creep its way up and out of the bottle before I have a chance to pour it in my glass. As I pour the orange and straw hued nectar into my glass, a steady stream of bubbles races from the bottom to the top, regaling my nose of good things to come. A huge cloud white head slowly fades into a thick white blanket. Swirls creamy.
Bam! Sour lemon and white grapefruit and Pinot Grigio. Sparkling and bright. Homemade unadulterated lemon bars. Kiwi and agave nectar in the middle. Chardonnay grapes and raw white oak barrels. Sourdough breads to soak it all up. Italian and French bread crusts along the edges.
Creamy, delicate, and sophisticated. Soft oak and sourdough and French rolls mingle harmoniously in the middle while soaking up tart zesty lemon and grapefruit before rolling into guava and kiwi. The mouthfeel is redolent of the finest angel food cake. Pinot Grigio and New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Vidalia onions? Lovely lace marks my glass. Green banana peel, chamois, and spice in my breath. Watching over the proceedings are Chardonnay grapes and just a hint of oak.
An epic beer from Epic Brewing out of Salt Lake City, Utah, I just wish I had more. The brilliant mastery of Brettanomyces in this beer is thanks to the collaborative efforts of the brewmasters from Epic Brewing and Crooked Stave Artisan Brewing. Fabulous. Divine.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 22oz. 9.5% ABV. A dense, white head forms over a hazy golden body with microfloaties. The aroma is quite citrusy and lightly bretty, disappointingly simple, but nice anyway. Some faint malty hints as well. It’s medium bodied, quite dry and with a nice carbonation level. Citrus, elderflower and some maltyness in the flavor. Some bitterness chiming in towards the finish. Overall, easy drinkable and quite tasteful, but lacking complexity and depth. Refreshing. 131123
