Tap @ BBF:NOTF. Light baby diaper for a second, quickly covered by a big orange smartie character - reminiscent of a Cascade beer. That smartie lacto thing continues throughout the flavor, with a bit of apple. I think this is a bit more interesting than the straight 2011 brute.

Pouring at the Night of the Funk in Boston. Pours a lightly hazy gold with a thin white head. Soft apples, brett and lots of funk. Apples, sour acid that gets big. Acidic with long fuzzy musk, big dry brett. Long acid, vinegar, and acetic acid on the finish.
