Draft at Brouwer’s, Seattle. Pours a burnished copper, little to no off white head, decent amount of lacing. Aroma rich, yeasty, funky, tart. Plenty of Brett in this baby. Body lively, some tartness, finish somewhat subtle. Top-class American Saison along the lines of Logsdon or Anchorage.

Really happy to see this on at the Surly Taproom after missing it at GTMW. Slightly hazy light orange pour. A bit of a white head. Nose is slightly grape and slightly wooden. Great Brett character in the taste, slightly funky, slightly sour, finishing with lingering bitterness and sourness. One of my new favorites from Surly!

Tap at Surly. Pour is a hazy, light orange/yellow with white head. Nose is tart grape, wood and a bit of funk. The brett really does some nice work in this. Some funk, some sour, really damn good.

Draft at Red Cow for Surly Tap Takeover. Sweet and sour nose. Livery assertive aroma. Hazy to murky gold. Quite a bit of funk and considerable sourness. Really nice finish. Outstanding funky saison.

phaleslu (6335) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Draft sample at FOBAB 2013. Pours a semi-cloudy gold color with a finger of white head that settles into a ring. Notes of grapes, apricot, peach, bretty funk, and oak. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a funky, dry mouthfeel. Really nice bretted saison.
