This beer is amazing. Slightly sour with lots of delicious flavor. Probably my favorite beer.

dnstone (2807) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 26, 2015
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2016 Fantastic barrel funk aroma. Light hazed golden with solid white head. Moderate funky (dulled by the wood) with a soft carbonation. Hits at tart, without getting there; a bit winey, woody. Notes: On tap at the Denver Rare Beer Tasting 8, GABF Week 2016. Previous Rating - 8/3/8/4/18 = 4.1 Pale golden in color with a white head. Winey, brett-funk aroma. Winey with wood and brett funk character and light tart edges. Notes: Denver Rare Beer Tasting 13

juffage (171) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2015
On keg at Magic Rock Tap, Rainbow Project 2015. Although I spent the day drinking mostly sour/bret beers (they were way overrepresented!), this one still stands out in my mind as being very good. Large Sauvingon Blanc flavour, white wine grapes and bretty acidic tart aftertaste. Sweet, fruity, grassy and soft. Slight oak. BBQ sauce & orange marmalade in the aftertaste. Yeah boyyeeeeeee.

Draft at Brouwers, Seattle. Pours a burnished copper, little to no off white head, decent amount of lacing. Aroma rich, yeasty, funky, tart. Plenty of Brett in this baby. Body lively, some tartness, finish somewhat subtle. Top-class American Saison along the lines of Logsdon or Anchorage.

Awesome brew, wine and brett dominate, it is dry and effervescent, good tartness and funk.

Bacterial (2931) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Really happy to see this on at the Surly Taproom after missing it at GTMW. Slightly hazy light orange pour. A bit of a white head. Nose is slightly grape and slightly wooden. Great Brett character in the taste, slightly funky, slightly sour, finishing with lingering bitterness and sourness. One of my new favorites from Surly!

Tap at Surly. Pour is a hazy, light orange/yellow with white head. Nose is tart grape, wood and a bit of funk. The brett really does some nice work in this. Some funk, some sour, really damn good.

ElGaucho (2394) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Draft at Red Cow for Surly Tap Takeover. Sweet and sour nose. Livery assertive aroma. Hazy to murky gold. Quite a bit of funk and considerable sourness. Really nice finish. Outstanding funky saison.

phaleslu (9706) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 19, 2013
Draft sample at FOBAB 2013. Pours a semi-cloudy gold color with a finger of white head that settles into a ring. Notes of grapes, apricot, peach, bretty funk, and oak. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a funky, dry mouthfeel. Really nice bretted saison.
