3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted on draft at Lush CBC event. Pours gold with a red hue and a thin off-white head. Nose of brett, almond, vanilla, and slightly sour. Flavors are of bitter hops, moderate tartness, with a back palate dominated by wheat flavor. The carbonation is high with a medium body and a long bitter and wheat finish. This is not my favorite beer, but I think it would be killer with all types of different food.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Blind Tiger. Pale golden pour with a thin head. The nose is loaded with flinty/fruity brett character. A touch of herbal/woody/spicy hops in the nose as well. The flavour is quite lovely. A slightly astringent maltiness on the back. Light lingering fruitiness and some light funkiness. The palate is quite dry with a touch of astringency on the back. Fresh with a kiss of pineapple as it warms up. Pretty tasty brew, really.
