COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Epic Brewing Company’s latest barrel-aged beer brings something new—wild yeast. This brew is a collaboration ale with Crooked Stave Artisan Brewing of Fort Collins, Colorado. Chad Yakobson, Brewmaster/Owner of Crooked Stave, is well known for his skill and knowledge in the brewing of sour and Brettanomyces driven beers. The beer was brewed at Epic by the two brewers. Kevin Crompton, Epic’s Brewmaster, and Chad spent several weeks working on the recipe and selecting the proper Brett strains and barrels for the beer to morph from a golden Saison into a Saison-Brett Golden Ale.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7879) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2017
Sampled on draft at House of 1000 Beers this beer poured a pale yellow color with a medium sized creamy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was dry, musty and very bretty. The flavor was dry, bitter, musty, very bretty and citric. Very long finish with lingering brett. Medium body. Ok.

UXO (1896) - CANADA - APR 24, 2017
Appearance: hazy pale gold with one fat finger of fluffy white head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, minimal patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: mild, apples and pears, stone fruit, white grape must, oak, light earthy funk. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate tart, low bitter. (8/10) Palate: medium-light body, lively carbonation, off-dry tart warming finish. (4/5) A nicely done Wild, pleasant and interesting. It’s almost white wine-like with its fruit and wood notes, crisp body and gently warming finish. Problem is, I’m not that big a fan of white wine even when I’m drinking white wine. That said, I wouldn’t say no to another of these if offered, which is really the only test that matters, right? (15/20) 7.5/10 #ryansbooze ryansbooze.com

It is light golden and clear. It has flavors that feature earthly elements, leather, and white grapes.
