This is a simple beer, but extremely well executed, in my opinion. The brett is done nicely. Golden pour with a generous creamy white head. A nice tartness from the brett. Sour apple, with the typical horse blanket flavor, but not puckering sour that can detract or be too overwhelming. This is a beer that I purchase every once in a while. Too pricey for a go to beer, but I really enjoy this when the money is set aside for a bottle.

there seemed to be a good base underlying this beer but the enjoyment was mild due to quite a bit of butter flavor... oh well, epic makes nice beers but this was not one of them... . they call me toothless joe, but jokes on them, i have dentures and my name is sally.

Bomber of release 4 at 9.1 % abv purchased from Epic Brewing. Pours hazy light golden with a tall white head. The aroma is the perfect marriage of what I expect from Epic beers and Crooked Stave beers. It has the assertive body and esters I associate with Epic’s Belgian style beers and it has the perfectly incorporated funky Brett that I associate with Crooked Stave’s beers. There are strong vinous notes of muscadine wine in the aroma along with cloves, barnyard and light flowers. The mouthfeel is full, and though I generally prefer a medium/light or very spritzy mouthfeel for this kind of thing, it works well here. Drying, sour notes of muscadines are in the flavor also along with cheese, barnyard, lemon juice and flowers. As the beer warms, the alcohol starts to become a little noticeable, but not too bad. This is tasty stuff.
