bottle. Hazy golden with one finger head. The Brett here is mild and adds some funk without really being tart. Hops are fairly citrusy with a medium bitterness. Good stuff, but probably not worth the pricetag.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of brett, toast, and citrus. Taste of toast, sweeter toffee malts, some citrus, lightly wild. Overall just too subtle all the way around. Leave it to evil twin to make a Crooked Stave beer suck.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce bottle
This bottle had yet to go completely over to the brett side but the signs were there. While it would not age too terribly well I imagine it could be fun to sit on a bottle for a few months to see how it transforms. Depending if I can find a pre-aged bottled maybe I will do that myself.
Aroma / Appearance - A carbonated golden body shines like the midday sun. Crisp vibrant white head surges and never collapses. Dry yeast, oranges, zest, and lemons tickle the senses. A light fruity champagne wafts upwards with ease.
Flavor / Palate - Fluid and refreshing, the first impression leaves a mark on the memory. Lemon zest, orange peels, and a tickle of brett lend this a balanced mixture of fruit and champagne. Maybe it was the low key profile or maybe the low ABV but the bottle emptied more quickly than most.
