3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml bottle from Plumpjack. Cloudy orange with a huge billowing white head with bubbles characteristic of brett. Bretty aroma, spicy with tart peach notes. Funky. Nice flavor, with brett dominating. Dry and a tad tart. A bit of a weird finish I can’t put my finger on. The strength of this beer comes through in the long finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Very solid overall.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Poured a dirty cloudy dark beige color ale with a huge dirty head with good retention and some excellent lacing. Aroma of rustic malt with light funky yeasty notes is quite sublime. Taste is dominated by dry rustic notes with some funky yeast notes and a dry floral finish. Dry Brett notes are clearly identifiable but are not overwhelming and keep the malt base flavours intact. Body is full with super great carbonation (a bit of a gusher as well BTW) and no apparent alcohol. I could drink this beer this every day of the year!!!
