16 oz can and draft. One of the best bretts i’ve ever had. Very excited to see how this develops in the can. Hope Vivant does this one again.

Tallboy into snifter. Hazy gold pour, some head, tons of lace. Yeasty aroma needs to push forward more.
Soured yeast and grain up front. Funky, barnyard yeast grows in intensity with a healthy sour base to fall back on. Not sure I've had a good canned sour before, but I'm a fan.

16 ounce can bought near Detroit. A dark golden with a beige head that settles into a thin layer. The aroma is funky bret and complex fruit. Lots of wildness is tasted first and it is more than bret. Lots of malts add plenty of sweetness. A light hop profile adds some spice and bitterness. Fruit is apples and tropical fruit. Cinnamon was tasted late as was sulfur. It was just a bit medicinal. Alcohol was not tasted but was felt.

Peppery with flavors or orange zest and strong brett. Good, but nothing terribly interesting.

On tap at Ashley’s in Ann Arbor. Not my style. Quite heavy and boozy, too much sweetness. Just a hint of sourness. Tasty and well made for what it is, though.

Can! Pours a clear copper color with a very light tan head. Funky aroma; sour and some barnyard. At this point is have a more sour note than funky though. Medium mouthfeel. Pear, apple, some sweetness, pineapple, all mixed in with some funk. Not overly sour though. ABV really doesn’t show. Pretty tasty.

This is a special seasonal beer they are trying out. I wasn’t a big fan of it. It actually tastes sour like it was skunked or old.

Poured a translucent copper with a ring of white foam. Aroma has a cidery, cotton candy essence. A little sour with a drying finish.

Pours reddish copper with a modest beige head and a sour fruit aroma. There is a medium-bodied light malt flavor with brett-fueled sourness that is substantial but not overwhelming. A dry fruity finish.
