3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask pour at DotLA12. Pours a mostly clear pinkish with nice head that fizzes away. The nose is fruity. Brett forward, light lacto and some cherry/raspberry notes. Floral as well. Seems a bit young and green overall. On tasting, moderate tartness. Drying finish of Brett funk. Earthy and fruity, gets more sour as it warms up. Could be a bit lighter on the palate overall but still a fine beer.
