4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Barcade. Hazy yellow-gold pour with a thick sticky white head. The aroma is great. Loads of sweet/tart pineapple and a lovely bretty spicy funkiness. Fairly fruity nose with a touch of lactic tartness as well. The pineapple character lingers nicely on the finish along with a touch of minerally character that lends a nice dryness along with the acidity. Warming brings up a bit more soft tart fruitiness and kiss of mint on the back. Awesome stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I thought this was delicious and extremely well made, definitely a good palate cleanser and very clean. Soft mouthfeel, with some sour bretty notes and some bitter citrus flavors as well as some earthy grassiness. Tart fruits, some green apple skins, but stays very clean throughout. Nicely done.

as soon as I made the last twist on the wire cork holder, the cork flew out with such force that the bottle flew out of my hands, across the kitchen, and hit the fridge...falling to the ground and spilling 7/8 of the beer onto the floor. I picked up the bottle and put it on the counter to find that the bottle was completely full again...this time, with nothing white fluffy white head....I waited about 20 minutes to be able to get a small pour of actual beer out of the bottle...the head of course was gigantic in the glass, about 3 times as thick as my actual pour. I waited again for 10 minutes as the side of the glass were left white, but i could finally reach the beer underneath. The nose is inviting with straw, lemons, brett, must, and fruits. The carbonation was now in the air and on my floor instead of my beer, so the mouthfeel was similar to something nitro’d. The flavors were softly bretty and hay-like with essence of lemon, but there was a spicy hotness behind everything that was very strange..i think it has something to do with the carbonation...i feel my heart filling with gas. Its certainly good but I think it would have been better with more of a brett character and the addition of some saaz hopping.
