On tap into a sampler glass. Aroma is low key brett with a malty character in the forefront. Taste is very woody, not necessarily in a bad way. Sourness is more of a supporting role in this beer making it fairly drinkable.

Bottle… RBWG ‘10… Murky, caramel-colored ale with lots of floaties and a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is a tangy, lavish swirl of caramel, funk, assorted nuts and nameless fruits. Light-bodied and astringent with tingly carbonation. Tangy, acidic flavor is well-balanced by good, tannic bitterness. Touches of caramel and another unknown fruit. Finishes tangy and dry. Thanks to darkguardian for sharing a growler of this interesting beer!
