Poured from birthday bottle from Quag into a Schiltz chalice: Pours clear straw / golden in color, one finger white head, nice retention. Aroma is grass, funk, a little grapefruit and other citrus notes. Taste is slightly tart up front, lots of citrus and grassy notes, and then a very slight hop bit and lots of Brett funk on the back end. I’m not a huge fan of Brett but this is still an incredible beer. Incredibly drinkable, medium body, awesome.

Aroma is heavy on rich brett, but also has a fair share of citrus fruits throughout. Flavor is grapefruit, mango, wood, and florals. Lighter to medium in body with a tart finish.
