3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle, release #1. Pours a hazy yellow with a smallish white head that goes to a thin film that leaves some lacing. It has quite a few floaties.
The aroma is floral brett and some slightly metallic overripe fruits and some funk.
The flavor is some fruity apple champagne with brett notes and some funk with a bit of bitterness in the dry finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, I recall this being a much better brett beer when I had it a couple of months ago. Either this bottle is different or it isn’t aging well for my tastes. A lot more sediment this time around too.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from Sam’s, Durham. Damn, those Epic folks keep cranking out the beers. Cloudy pale gold pour, something vaguely Berliner-ish to the appearance but the rocky head and the earthy consistency remind of the saison style. As the beer settled in, it got very sedimental. And appropriately, the nose was a bit overly-earthy, with clashing notes of brett, berry, yeast, and grains. Might be the kind of thing that comes together a bit more down the road but as is I found it uninspiring.

651mL thanks to tastybeer. Pours glowing straw. Thick white foam. Sheets of lace. Nose is rich Brett C tropicals, pineapple, curaçao. Very powerful. Taste is salty, a bit papery, mild celery, lemon, orange oil. Actually not bad. Body is not dry or minerally. Pretty good stuff.

Bottle from AZ Wine. Love the label. Pours straw in color with steady carbonation and a white head that leaves faint lacing. Smells of oak, cherries, and canned peaches. Tastes of malt, pears, flour, and sweat. Tasty.

Bomber. Aroma is really bretty; I smell Granny Smith apples. Pours cloudy golden with a medium white head with good retention; leaves spotty lace. Taste is sweet, peppery and lightly tart. Finishes dry. Flavors of white wine (sauvignon blanc) are noticeable. Highly carbonated with a medium body and a somewhat watery texture. Tasty.

Pours a very clear yellow color w/ a pure white head. Great aroma of sour lemon, white grapes, vinegar & Brett funk. Flavor mostly follows the nose, although surprisingly more sweet than sour. Lemonade, white wine, finishing very clean. Good beer!

Hazy gold pour. Fluffy white head an drippy lace. Grainy aroma with light funk. Actually the aroma lead me to beleive there might be a little acidity here. Nope. Light funk. Grains. Meh
