Tastes appley, kind of putrid and almost like vomit but enjoyable. Interesting complex taste. Best fresh, loses flavor and tang. Cool bright orangey/yellow color.

mikesaum (711) - Newark, Ohio, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Pours an odd murky brownish red with a huge fluffy beige head. Aroma is nice, smells tart, fruity, some cherries, nice funk to it. Taste isn’t as good as the aroma led me to believe, some tart cherry notes, a bit of that horse blanket funk, note as sour as I was hoping just some tart notes, maybe some age will let the brett develop, dry finish, with some oaky notes and yes, a hint of wine. Not too bad but not worth 12 bucks
