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.

On tap at Ashley’s Westland. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Very tart aroma. Flavor is very tart, bretty, saltine cracker. Tart to the point of sourness, with citrus and biscuit. Really, really tasty.

SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - APR 30, 2015
Une bière dorée et délicatement voilée. Une belle mousse blanche qui laisse quelques traces sur mon verre. Le nez est super intéressant avec les brettanomyces, les fruits pâles, le fût de vin et la sueur féminine. Le goût est équilibré, délicat même, entre le jeu des levures, le côté fruité et les malts mielleux et l’acidité. En bouche, le corps est de moyenne densité avec un pétillement bas et une texture légèrement huileuse. La finale un peu funky et fruitée plaira à tous les palais.

Savage_Night (434) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 19, 2015
Pours a orange gold color with a moderate white head. Head retention is ok. Sour, yeasty, slight citrus and very light spice aroma. Sour, yeasty, spice and almost bready taste. Awesome tasting Saison. Great at any time of the day.

Petkus331 (389) - Redford, Michigan, USA - APR 16, 2015
Very sour brett aroma with autumn grass aroma. Very bubbly golden ale with lots of white lace. Tastes of light applejuice with balancing bitter hay, very very nice. Palate a little fizzier than average. Overall, great ale, very Jolly Pumpkin-ish.

UPDATED: APR 21, 2015 From a bottle at the brewery. Pours clear gold with a fizzy white head. Tastes like herbs, yeast, dried golden raisins, apple, pear, and smooth alcohol. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like yeast, dried golden raisins, apple, pear, and light herb.

2015-03-14. Hazy dark golden yellow body with a small white head. 3+ Aroma is mildly funky, fairly alcoholic, light fruit. Flavour is relatively mild, lightly funky and lightly sour, moderate bitter hops and alcohol that grows as you go. Lingering funky hops. Smooth bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Decent. Bit too mild overall but nice. Bottle, Release 4, shared by treehugger.
