It poured a cloudy yellow color with a white head. The aroma was funky, a little sourness and some mustiness with a little of the wood in there. The taste was similar with a slightly sour finish. One of their better beers. Well done.

22 oz. bottle shared by phaleslu. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma and flavor have herbal, funk, some Brett notes, grass, some fruity notes, white wine, wood and a strange sweet sugary component. Interesting, but the sweetness bothered me a bit.

Bottle shared by by phaleslu. Clear orange golden color. Minimal white head. Nice oaky tart nose. Medium body. Lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Oaky tart flavor. Some belgian type saisony yeast character. Light hint of laundry. Good light sour taste, some light alcohol. Not a bad sour at all.

22 oz. bottle from Randallís. This one caught my eye. No, not because of the out-of-proportion clip art vinyl label; because Iíve never known KS to bottle anything, especially a "Wine Barrel Aged Belgian Style Saison with Brettanomyces Ale Aged in Wine Barrels." Pours a mostly clear gold with a small white head that vanishes quickly. Bountiful white wine notes, siwh oak, bretty, barnyardy funk, honey, sweet and pale malts. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a vinous mouthfeel. Not bad. My favorite KS beer, which isnít saying much. But this was good.

22 oz bottle pours amber with a white head. Aroma of sweet malt, fruit and wood. Taste is sweet, wine and a hint of wood. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

vyvvy (3876) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Pours hazy orange with a small white head. The aroma has lots of dry red wine, saison earthy/funk, tannic aspect, raspberries and buggy as can be. It has a medium grainy body with understated carbonation. The flavor starts off with mushy malt, earthy/buggy saison yeast and red wine notes (but much less than on the aroma). The finish has some plastic and earthiness. Nice beer.

Strykzone (4781) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Cloudy light brownish with minimal head. A funky brett aroma. That is the flavor, too. Some vinous notes and gentle fruit. Light brown sugar. Interesting and nice.

thegreenrooster (3154) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 27, 2013
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is bretty funk, sour, musty with a little of the wood showing up. Flavor is slightly sour with some vinous aspects. Finish has a nice sourness left on the tounge. Not overpowering just there. Itís a decent beer. I wish more of the funky horseblanket thing would have shown up but it is a minor complaint. Also to the brewer, you donít have to but a 1/4 inch of wax on the top of the bottle. I had to saw it off.
