22oz bottle. Thanks popery! Aroma has a light malt and grainy note that is slightly sweet. Moderate stone and tropical fruit notes balanced with moderate amounts of peppercorns. Light banana and red apple character. Faint citrus. Pours a very hazy, golden straw color with a small, thin, white head that quickly recedes to the edges where it sticks around. Medium light lacing and small legs. Flavor has a light sweetness upfront with a medium amount of bready, grainy malt character. Medium strong white peppercorn character with medium stone fruit notes. Light tropical fruit, lighter banana and citrus. Medium light bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall an alright Brett but the peppercorn character is a bit strong for me in the flavor. As it warms there is a bit more maltiness to the beer which helps cut through the pepper, but the finish is still strong peppercorn.

(bottle - 22 oz) Hazy gold pour with a puffy white head. Very light aroma. Mainly Belgian yeast with some light sweetness. Flavor is dry and sour in the not so good way. You can taste the peppercorns but it’s a strange mixture of dry malts and pepper with some overly sweet Belgian yeast. No hint of Brett at all. Was expecting more.

22oz bottle in a teku. Pours lightly hazy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some pale and caramel malts, light hints of Brett dryness, some dough, and hints of dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A rather boring beer to come out of a collaboration from two great brewers.
