Bottle. Hazy light amber color with a medium white head. The nose is quite floral, some summery fruits, white grape. The taste is plenty of lemons, some bretty funkyness, though not overstated. Hints of all spice and tea. Light, slightly dry finish. Light/medium body with active carbonation. Overall, a pleasant sipper.

Fantastic stuff. Pours a dark hazy golden. Aromas of red wine, oak, funk, Belgian yeast and some spice. Flavors are tart and funky with some nice sweetness and spice. Loved this.

mverity (294) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2015
Pours orange/amber with hints of gold. Head in bubbly and off white and faded quickly into faint wisps and a pencil thin collar. Aroma is heavy on the Brett funk, with grass, floral hops, and lightly bready malt sweetness. I also get some orange zest. Taste is again with the brett funk up front, some citrus zestiness, very faint watermelon and fairly floral. There’s a nice deep oakiness that works behind everything; but holds it’s own. Light body, tart and bright on the tongue. Bubbly med-high carbonation.

Ferris (6547) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle - Nice citrus and light grassy notes, with a nice berry like sweetness. Cloudy gold with a decent white head.. Tart and vinous with a bit of bitterness. Red grape and some woody dry notes.

Batch #3. Pretty light plum purple color. Nose is floral botanicals, light red wine when warm. Heavy astringent herbal botanical character, lemon drop citrus, light red wine fruit and barrel, bitter soapy rose, bitter citrus fruit pith finish that lingers. Improved as it warmed, becoming less bitter and astringent. Not chemically astringent, but botanicals reminded me of accidentally getting some cologne or perfume in my mouth until it warmed.

Bouteille partagée. Robe jaune trouble. Un nez de saison avec des bretts, c’est surprenant. Le pinot fait son œuvre. La bouche est piquante avec des saveurs de bretts et de blé. Un peu funky. Le bois apporte une couche de saveurs supplémentaires.

JBPortland (1024) - Portland, Maine, USA - JAN 25, 2015
750ml bottle pours toasted cloudy orange with a finger of head. Nose is full of funky floral fruit, juicy tartness, pinot noir notes, and damp wood. Tast has crisp tartness with balanced acidity, funky wet wood, some yeast spice, dark berry, lots of enveloping vinous red grape and wine flavors. Finish is dry, a touch prickly, tart citrus fruit, wet wood, toast, grape, floral fruit and berry, some yeast spice. Wonderful.

Cloudy darkish orange with a large white head. Aroma is orange blossom, brett funk, citrus peel, oak. Medium bodied, tart on the palate with a hint of bitterness on the finish. Taste is dried peaches, apricot, rose, hint of dry red wine and oak.

Bottle share. Slightly hazy amber. Aroma of sweet flowers, sweet orange, wine. Taste is sweet, and sour. Smooth, low carbonation, sticky.

3fourths (8382) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle batch 4, July 2014. Lightly hazed amber with a fine white head. Floral and fruity nose is chardonnay, grapefruit juice, brett, tropical bubble gum, glazed pastries, salt / minerals. Medium body, sweet, juicy, fruity, acidic and tart with a drying tannic and malic finish. Fun nose, vibrant and bright and quenching in the mouth, but more sour and acidic than I’d prefer.
