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.
