2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Pours an amber gold with a big fluffy head. Ginormous infact.
Aroma: A big whiff of funky sour brett with big ripe pineapple notes.
Taste: Pineapple juice, bitter spicy funky yeast.
Mouthfeel: low carb, syrupy.
Overall: I only liked the nose on this one. It was a pilot batch with a line issue, so all things considered, a fun experience.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is a very cloudy golden color with some hints of orange. The keg has a slight problem with it, so very overcarbonated with a huge white head.
S: The nose is wonderfully funky with some notes of straw, green apple, pears, and pineapple (Brett C, perhaps?).
T: The flavor does not exhibit quite as much Brett as the nose does. That said, this is quite similar to regular Golden Chaos with a touch of some green apple and slight tartness. Also some citrus, pears, and pineapple.
M: The body is medium with a high carbonation. Despite the extreme overcarbonation on the beer itself has a respectable amount of bubbles on the tongue.
D: This was quite nice indeed. Aaron said they only made one keg of this beer this time around but will more than likely do it again.
