i love the sour style, so that’s my bias.
very sweet and tart. smells almost like champagne. taste is initially sweet, then tart, with hints of apple and peach. the 8.8% is VERY well masked, and this beer is quite drinkable. finish is lingering tart.
overall an amazing beer from epic. this is what i had hoped the sour apple saison would taste like. and as an ex-mormon i find the name hilarious. very good! revolverlbc (22) - California, USA - FEB 23, 2013
So freaking good. Highly recommended to me by a sales man who knows his stuff. Pick up a bottle now.

Clear yellow constant little bubbles. Aromas of brett, honey and funk.
Tastes of light funk and tart citrus tones. Great full mouthfeel and hints of wine dryness in the aftertaste. Fascinating (3) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2012 does not count
Nose: Sulfur, English mustard, wet wool, TCP antiseptic, tarragon, sweet basil, white grape juice and chicken stock.
Look: Sunshine yellow. Champagne-like effervescence.
Taste: White pepper, juniper berry, dry white wine and lemon zest.
Notes: Long medium tartness. Very dry nose. Medium dry finish. Overall, very "white wine-like". milewide (2221) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2014
I’ve never had a more brett forward ale! The aroma and taste stinks, just like us brett lovers expect. Make this in 16 oz. cans, year around, and it would never leave my frig!

My first Brett beer, I opened it way early just to see what a "young" Brett tastes like. This one threw off a lot band-aid in the aroma so that was good to experience. Also the taste came off with the antiseptic and slight rubbery notes I hear young Brett beers are often prone to.
I bought a second bottle and look forward to popping it in a year or so.
Otherwise, I love what this beer wants to become. Mouthfeel is great, color and carbonation are really nice.

Golden in color with not much head. Smells of a tart crisp apple with some funk. Tastes of white wine and tart apples, plus the brett. Love this beer! Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2013
In short: An original, refreshing, very bright and moderately wild/barnyard amber Saison. Truly excellent.GenDV138 (7229) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 18, 2014
How: Bottle 22oz, batch 1, consumed 9 months after the beer release. Bottle sent to me by tyler_mn, thanks a lot Tyler.
The look: Cloudy glowing golden-amber body topped by a small white head.
In long: Nose is moderately bretty with a very bright farmhouse character, a nice breeze in a coutryside flower field and a not-so-dirty horse blanket. Taste is also very bright. A nice bright restrained brett character, very clean for a brett beer with the brett bringing sharp funky grapefruity edges. A wheat-like malt backbone, a refreshing mild acidity/tartness, a fresh bowl of fruit salad, pleasant cheesy notes. Sweetness sensation is very low. Salty/minerals mouthdrying finish along with some white grapefruits. Everything worked so well in this beer, nothing is overdone, it tasted unique in a way I have a hard time to put into words. Brett beers can be tricky, never know when is the best time to open them, not sure if it because I just waited the perfect amount of time before opening this particular bottle, but I thought this beer was fantastic, an wonderful surprise considering the so-so ratings indicate. I liked it so much that I texted my friend who sent me the bottle a “:)”, the first time I text a smiley face, because the last time I was this happy there was only rotary phones.
Bottle (release #4, 9.1% ABV, SLC #1397) poured into a tulip. Pours a clear light golden yellow with almost a finger off-white head. Nice amount of carbonation streaming up the glass. Brett, funk, tropical fruit, pear on the nose. On the taste, big Brett notes, funk, slightly tart, pear, some wine and oak. Crisp and refreshing with a medium body and dry finish.

750ml release #3. Pours a nice golden color with a white head leaving minimal lacing. Aroma is tart with big waves of pear, apple, and dandelion flowers. Tatse is big funky brett, tart and wonderful. This beer is awesome, I love Brett though so this was right up my alley.
