Taster at Jungle Jim’s Barrel-Aged Beer Bash 2015. Mildly hazy amber orange color. Thin ring of white head, leaving decent splotches of lace. Oaky bright bretty nose. Good spicy rye in the flavor, as well as a touch of citrus -- which seems like it comes from the hop more than the brett. Satisfying level of bigger bitterness, moderate sour, a tasty combo here. Light sweet. Medium plus body. Smooth, kind of slick texture, then slightly dry in the finish. Lighter carbonation, pleasantly tingly. A very interesting, tasty and unique sour ale.

Sampled at the STL Hops 7th Anniversary Party - Pours orange / bronze with a beige head. The aroma has tartness, some berries and cherries. It has a medium / light husky body with mild rough carbonation. The flavor start with light sourness, light caramel, sweet tarts and grainy bugs. The finish has some papery aspect and is more malty. Interesting.

Draft pull into a tulip. The beer pours a murky copper brown. There is a small tan head that leaves little lacing. Aroma is straight berries. Raspberry and blueberry are abundant. The taste is tart up front with lots of berry and grape flavors that last throughout. It is fairly easy to drink and very refreshing. Overall a tasty beer. It should be noted that I did not pick up on the Brett yeast really, however I also was in no condition to be tasting beers at this time.

Aroma of apples, yeast and malt. Light to medium body with flavors of brett yeast, tart apples and malt. The finish is funky yeast and tart fruit. Decent overall.
