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.

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!

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.

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".

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
