wedgie9 (1989) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a 750mL bottle at the RBWG Grand Tasting, big thanks to phaleslu for sharing!!! Pours cloudy pale orange with a thin white head that recedes to a thin collar of lace. The nose is tart lemon peel with tons of brett funk, light bread, and traditional spicy saison yeast. The flavor is more lacto sour with a lot of brett funk, and the same lightly bready spicy yeast. The body is medium, lightly tannic, with light carbonation and a long tart and hugely funky finish.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2014 Bottle... RBSG 2014... This beer rocks!... Hazy straw-colored ale with no head. Both the aroma and flavor are fruity, funky and stoopid acidic. Sour as Hell, bretty and bready. Love it. Awesome, world class beer!

Sampled at the RBSG 2014. It poured a cloudy orange color with an off-white head. The aroma was of dark fruits, some funk, grains and a bit of earthiness. The taste was of tart fruits, yeast, Brett and a nice funkiness. Wow.
