Epic Brewing Company’s latest barrel-aged beer brings something new—wild yeast. This brew is a collaboration ale with Crooked Stave Artisan Brewing of Fort Collins, Colorado. Chad Yakobson, Brewmaster/Owner of Crooked Stave, is well known for his skill and knowledge in the brewing of sour and Brettanomyces driven beers. The beer was brewed at Epic by the two brewers. Kevin Crompton, Epic’s Brewmaster, and Chad spent several weeks working on the recipe and selecting the proper Brett strains and barrels for the beer to morph from a golden Saison into a Saison-Brett Golden Ale.

DocLock (9364) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Bomber from Capone’s. Pours clear gold with frothy, white head. Nose is champagne yeast, hops, citrus, pale malt. Tastes dry, hoppy, white winey, with late apple and hop flavor. Solid, and a true beer/wine straddler.

mathieuc (3032) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 25, 2016
Pours an unclear golden with a small white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of earthy brett, pepper, fruits and slight oxidation. Taste is really fruity, funky and offers some light white wine angles. Pretty oaky, too, was this barrel-aged? Dry. Average body and carbonation. A nice fruity/vinous saison.

tom10101 (4903) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2016
Bottle (22 oz). Shared by czar at tasting, thanks! Clear pale golden with a small white head, moderate retention, leaving little lacing. Aroma is nicely brett forward with bright fruitiness, oak spiciness, funk, white wine barrels, cider notes and floral notes. Taste is nicely funky with fruity brettanomyces, oak spiciness, herbal and floral notes, white wine barrels, hints of vanilla and grass. Medium body. Lively carbonation. Super fruity finish. Really good, easy drinking fruity brett Saison.

BillKismet (3739) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2016
Blonde body, ring of head. Really pleasant sour bouquet with an appealing, airy tartness. Body tastes similarly of sour and tartness, but is a bit too intense. Overly sweet tart candy finish.

kidmartinek (4385) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 29, 2016

JorisPPattyn (9134) - Ursel, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2016
Sample in less than perfect condition, Rel. #5 8.9% Almost no head; faintly veiled ochre-golden beer. Sourish, flowery, green fruit, natural perfume, lactic acid. Sourish, but also spicy/herbal flavours, pharmaceutical herbs. Light body, strange slickness, faint oily feel. Despite the leftover, still excellent sour ale, perfumey and delicate, Bretts unlike the ones I’m used from the States. Many thanks to L & M V!

77ships (7023) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 3, 2016
655 ml. bottle sampled @ “Sir Goatie McGoat S&G Tasting”. Thank you Mathieu87 and/or PriorL! Dark hazy orange with no head. Nose is massive sour citrus, sour lemon peel. Taste is big sour lemon, sour yoghurt, some yeast, vinegar, light yeast, puckering. Body is a bit yeasty. Very simple, enjoyable, decent.

AirForceHops (5775) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Draft at Sunset Grill and Tap Alston, MA. Crystal clear appearance, total and complete clarity, light head retention.

Flavor has lasting Brettanomyces character throughout the sip. Traces of oak, light Funk in the finish. Body is correct for a golden Belgain ale. And even if you feel like it isn’t complex that is fine because it has a pretty good drinkable quilaty. Well made.
