4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at 2nd Shift festival. What a wonderful subtle brett beer. Saison spiced aroma with a citrus, funky taste. Perfect for St. Louis summers, and I could drink it all day long.
Smells like a sweet tart with light funk. Light orange with a small off white head. Tastes very tart, sour green grape up front but that is short lived. Quickly fades away to a crisp and slightly sweet aftertaste. Effervescent champagne-like palate. This was good. I can't believe it took me so long to rate it.

Keg @ GTMW ’16. Gold pour with a small head. Nose is fairly faint. A bit of gentle citrus and herbal character. Flavor is lightly sour and tangy. Accents of cucumber and lemon. Some mint. Light body, soft carb. Understated, but tasty.

Bottle shared with koleminer20. Aroma is sour, tart, lacto, sweet, good. Appearance is golden, hazy, white head. Taste is sour, tart, lacto, citrus, syrupy. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, lacto citrus sour aftertaste. Overall, it’s pretty mediocre.

Bottle, sharede by thephantomhennes at SuperBowl Party. Hazy light yellow with a lively white head. Lean pale malts with tart funk, lemon peel, tannic dryness that’s more woody than leathery. Very nice. yourilevesque (1829) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 4, 2016
Thanks to Greg for this brew! Dégustée en compagnie de François à l’apéro. Liquide jaune et sans bulles aucune. Au nez comme ne bouche, j’ai l’impression de boire du jus de pommes. Que de la pomme et un raisin vert. La levure Brett est soit insuffisante, soit morte. Effervescence correcte, notes de pelure de raisin vert et de jus de pommes pressées. Buvabilité 2000, complexité très faible. Pas très intéressante.

Bottle at WTWBA. Slightly hazy yellow pour. Orange and lemon, slightly tart. Some yeast. Simple, but pretty good. bytemesis (8540) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 24, 2016
Bottle thanks to beernbourbon. Pours clear pale straw, medium white head, dissipates fairly quickly, good lacing. Aroma is Brett, oak, hints of white grapes, vinous qualities, fruity. Flavor is light tart, light funk, loads of oak, white grape, clean Brett. Light body, nice clean sour. I seem to be out ahead of the pack in terms of enjoying this one. dfearnley (2200) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 28, 2016
Bottle to tulip (thanks Mike)
Consummation: Light lemony brett ale
Adjunct: A little thin and as a result it ends abruptly; rosy yellow with a thin bright white head and a cloudy appearance, but no particulates; lemon, peach, green grapes and brett aromas. thepatrickman (1363) - Jevington, East Sussex, ENGLAND - JUN 15, 2016
Bottle from Greg (gregwilsonstl) -- cheers! Despite a number of references to Brett all over the labels, this was a nice, light, pretty clean saison with just a little funky kick at the end. It was great on a hot day! koleminer20 (3704) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUN 10, 2016
From notes. Enjoyed this one at the Brew Crew Bash in Ann Arbor on May 21. This one was poured from a 750 mL bottle. The pour is a cloudy pale yellow, almost straw color with a creamy off white head that just lasts and lasts. I’m not too big a fan of sours that leave a head on them. The aroma is very musty. There is a light yeasty funk to it, and it’s a little strange. There is a fair bit of straw and barnyard, mixed in with a little lemongrass to help break it up. The back end is a little floral for my liking as well. It’s a strange mix of smells here. The flavor is decent. It starts out with a tart citrus zest and moves through some fruit skins before coming back to a decent funkiness. It’s got the floral character at the end here, but it’s much more straight forward than the nose, which I like. The mouth feel is a little heavy and under carbonated. The aftertaste is definitely acidic, but leaves a lemongrass kind of dry funkiness through the finish. Meh.
