On tap at Bistro’s 1st Barrel-Aged Beer Festival. 3 ounce sample. Sour, acetic, pleasant funky aroma. Brett is definitely present. Moderately hazy amber color with an off white head and scant lacing present. Lightly sour, funky start. Turns malty and caramelly in the middle. Finishes with some nice perfumey and floral flavors. Pretty good.
