UPDATED: SEP 21, 2017 Brewed by Perennial Artisan Ales from St. Louis, Missouri, Owen is a Belgian-style Ale with Brettanomyces.
The first scent that can be picked out is lemon after you have poured the beer out of the bottle. The second smell is the funk of the Brettanomyces yeast. The texture of the mouthfeel is peculiar due to the Mosaic hop presence. The combination of this hop and Brett compliment the elements of the beer nicely.
Saison is light and lends it flavor to the Brettanomyces yeast. The Saison is fully experienced in the dry finish. The familiar flavor and song of Brett is easily recognizable.
Lemon is faint and blends fluidly with the body of the beer. The fruit flavor and texture of mango is noted. You can discern it with some of the sweetness tasted. The mango breaks through with the hops as well.
Owen is a lovely Belgian-style Ale with Brettanomyces and Saison. With a 4.7% abv, the alcohol is nonexistent to the flavors of the beer. The Saison is felt in the dry finish more than the mouthfeel. Lemon and mango provide depth to the body of the beer. The funk from the Brett is pleasant and dominates. Owen is an extraordinary complex beer; it can be described as a dry hopped Saison on top of the Belgian-style with Brett. If you find it, take it with you; don't leave it behind when you have an opportunity to try this.
Cheers. Prost. Drink for the love of beer.

Draft at Craft Brewed. Pours a clearish neon straw with a finger of foam that lingers. Rhubarb, chamomile, honey clover and floral nose. Light and crisp on the palate, with floral honey notes and citrus. Lightly sweet, mild tartness. The floral notes are striking and none of that woodsy brett that comes out in a lot of brett saisons. Nice string of brett that compliments the floral, honey, citrus notes.
