What the brewers say

“We use all Colorado ingredients: malted and raw barley and wheat, Crystal hops, and a yeast blend of saison yeast, Brettanomyces, and Lactobacillus. We ferment in open oak barrel fermentors, then in other barrels. The result is a citrusy, dry, tart and effervescent beer.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Citrus with just a touch of Brett. Fruity esters abound, with notes of apricot, lemon, and lychee. A hint of must and leather adds to the Brett complexity.”

Flavor: “Moderately dry, medium body. Tart notes up front, orange and lime esters throughout. Moderate carbonation creates a refreshing bite toward the end. A puckering sensation after the taste lingers in the back of my mouth a while after the sip. Apricot, peach, and lemon up front with a bit of barnyard/horse blanket, must, and leather. Acidity pairs nicely with the Brett character, and the finish is surprisingly balanced.”

Overall: “Very complex, well-executed Brett saison. Tons of complexity from the Brett character with just the right amount of tartness and acidity to make each sip dynamic. Definitely worth seeking out.”
