2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared by Lunch. Thanks Paul!
The beer is pale golden and transparent with a small off white collar. The aroma brings citrus, alcohol, malt. Something odd in there as well. Metallic and mineral notes. Aggressive flavor and a bit harsh on the palate. Light bodied with an acetic finish. Stone fruits and yeast. Mediocre.

Bottle picked up at the brewery. It pours clear golden with a small white head. The nose is earthy, musty, funk, dust, old attic, blue cheese and old sweaty socks. The taste is earthy, funky, red grapefruit, sherbet, candied orange peel, blood orange, spice and straw with a dry finish. Medium body and conservative carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a small white bubbly head. Lots of brett funkiness on the nose, bright citrus, wet grass and barnyard, pepper\, and a nice tart note. Very light bodied taste, light bretty funk and pineapple and lemon citrus, spicy pepper note, and a light amount of sourness. Nose was great but the taste was a bit of a letdown. Not much funkiness or sourness. Nice citrusy character all around though.
