3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: cloudy pale gold with a short white head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: citrus, funky wet straw, white wine, light lactic. (8/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, moderate tart, light bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, crisp tart finish. (4/5)
Nice easygoing wild. Smells a bit more tart than it tastes - not sure if a little more sweetness would bring it out more, or not, but there’s just a little something lacking on the tongue. Nice funk, though, and a solid wild. (14/20)

Batch #16, embouteillée le 28 juillet 2015... J’adore! Le côté sauvage peut être plus prononcé un peu mais c’est vraiment très bon. C’est à la fois sec et onctueux en bouche, ce qui surprend. Le goût de citron est juste assez mordant. Au moment de verser, les bulles ne font pas comme d’habitude, c’est un peu louche. Bravo le TDD!

Draught at Vices & Versa. Glad I finally got to try this, apple, lemon, oak, wheat, tart, herbs, funky notes with a brett edge, earthy finish. Good stuff, even though it could have been maybe a tad more crazy, looking forward to try future versions.

Poured at Shelton Fest in St. Pete. Pours a hazy yellow with a big head. Aroma is cereal grains, some lemon and lemon zest, funkiness, fart, and acidity. The taste is lemon and pears, tart from the wild yeast strains, some barrel, a little fart, and wood. Thin body, tart finish. Kind of meh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Hazy yellow colour with a mediumsized creamy white head, which leaves some lace. Aroma is green apple skins, some citrus, mild yeast, and some lactic and acidic wood to it. Flavour is quite similar, with a quite big tartness to it. Somewhat dry palate.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2015 750 mL bottle, batch 700, drunk 11/28/15.
Lightly hazy, blonde golden with a small white head that sits at a ring.
Vanilla, cider and light sulfur in the nose with bits of lemon, very light oak and wet grass. Some guava and light pineapple signify a mellow, enjoyable brett presence. No oak or toastiness. Mellow.
In the mouth it’s tart, but wheaty and somewhat bland. There’s a light sharpness/astringency that’s not ideal, with a lot of sulfur (which i like, but probably is also not ideal). Carbonation is high and not tight at all, stripping more potential perceived body. Other than the light acetic character and sulfur, it’s clean and there’s no alcohol. But its very tired and thin at only ~1 year old.
