theisti (3185) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JAN 22, 2012
750 ml bottle shared by beastiefan2k. Brewed on july 1, 2010. Bottled March 1, 2011. The pour is an orange golden, hazed, with a small off white head. The aroma is wild yeast, some nice floral, and a light barnyard character in the back. The taste is a light floral sour, dirty earthy leathery Brett, light fruit sweetness, and finishes with more of the yeast. The palate is medium bodied, spritzy carbonation, and an earthy mineral brett finish. Really unique flavor and character the this beer. Thanks for sharing this one, Eugene.

Draught at GBBF 2011. Very hazy yellow color. Sweet and sour with apple, grapefruit, lots of phenols and some barnyard. Some cheesy bread crust. Really horsey and phenolic, it makes the finish very dry.

Pours light hazy dark golden with a small, staying, frothy, white head. Super aroma, woody, peach, funk, light grapes, malts and brett. Low, yet spritzy carbonation, fine light and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is fresh, dry, oaky, grapes, light peach, funky and horse blanket. Pleasant dry finish with some red wine notes.
