Today’s beer is from a brewery that I’ve never sampled any of their liquid from. Their labels looked a lot like Epic’s.
Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A ‘Co-Loveration’ by two brewers inspired by their mutual sincerity for: Saison, wild yeasts, and locally grown raw materials. This crude but delicate creation was crafted with apples grown in Palisade Colorado, wild Brettanomyces, and locally grown organic flat leaf parsley. No hops were used in this Saison.”
Random: I’m getting slightly better at opening waxed bottles.
This beer poured with a thin, two finger, pure white head. By the time I went to take the picture, it dissipated and left no lacing. The body was a clear, light yellow with lots of carbonation. The nose had green apple Jolly Ranchers, Chardonnay grapes and reminded me more of a white wine or a dry cider than a beer. The taste is where the brett came out, although it manifested as extreme dryness. It also had the same significant green apple note and white grapes as well. I know that this was brewed with herbs, but I didn’t pick any up. The body was light with lots of carbonation.The alcohol wasn’t noticeable. The finish was long and fruity and bone dry. This bottle was $11.99, which came to $1 an ounce. It was definitely a high pricetag, but worth it. I really enjoyed this beer and found it very unique, being that it wasn’t brewed with hops.
