COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Provisional saison, Artisan ale aged in oak barrels In a particular region of southern Belgium, the reserve or provision saison was called surette, meaning tart. Using time-honored techniques, our saisons employ old-world methods to restore complexity and the classical rustic character lost in modern day saison. Brewed with local Colorado floor malted barley, traditional harvest grains, and noble hops, Surette embodies old-world saison brewing traditions. Each batch of Surette is an expression of the large oak foeders it matures in while taking on an aged vinous quality and a complex tartness. Showcasing citrusy ripe fruits, a light zesty spice, and earthy undertones, Surette’s character exemplifies our mixed culture of Brettanomyces and souring bacteria.

TH28 (488) - - FEB 15, 2014
Appearance is cloudy light golden with a minimal foam cap that fades quickly. Aroma is a funky mix of brett, barnyard, and apple. Taste is sweet, peppery malt with a biting tart acidity and brett character. Mouthfeel is light with low carbonation. Finishes with a refreshing, crisp, dry tartness that lingers on the tongue

375ml bottle - thanks Marduk! (6:3:5:3:11=2.8)
Soft fruity bretty aroma. Straw colour, misty, brief head. Tartish taste, a bit yeasty, some fruitishness - I believe marduk when he says rhubarb: it's a bitter non-fleshy thing going on. A touch aggressive, not a pleasant quaff at all, but not flawed /per se/.

Marduk (8622) - Reval, ESTONIA - JAN 13, 2018
375ml bottle. Hazy golden color. Small size, white head, stays. Farty, sweet, leather, fizzy in aroma. Leather, sour, bit of rhubarb in taste. Leather and rhubarb and saison yeast in aftertaste. Not for me.

oobawa (1859) - Tennessee, USA - OCT 2, 2017
Fairly straightforward brett farmhouse ale, offering up loads of tart citrus and sweet wheat with a noticeable sauvignon blanc undercurrent adding complexity. Easygoing saison notes hide underneath the sourness, touching on the mellow cloves-n-grass you want, but mostly this beer's about the brett and oak, mixing funk and pucker with vanilla and wood on the back end. Nice yeasty aroma has traces of oak and barnyard. Looks decent, coming out a hazed yellow-gold with a light head and minor lace. Creamy feel seems a tad undercarbonated. Overall a good--if unexciting--take on the style.

3.4
Block (3222) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 1, 2017
Backlong entry. This beer is close to style with typical flavors. Well rounded and clean. Nothing too outstanding or unusual.
