Bold floral bouquet sweeps forward, encouraged by the Maris Otter Malt. Ale and Brettanomyces promote complex Brett characters. Dry finish. Alive and still fermenting, this bottle will continue to build carbonation. Pour with care. Brewed 3-23-09. Bottled 6-18-09.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 3, 2012
Pours a golden straw color with a finger of white head. Really nice balance of sweet pale malt notes and fruit. Quite a bit of pear and apple with a touch of pineapple. Some light tartness on the nose as well. The flavor is clean and very enjoyable. Great balance of malt and Brett. Somewhat dry but a touch of residual malt sweetness as well as some sweet fruit character. A bit of spice character on the palate which is very nice.

Tmoney99 (13466) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Bottle shared by shigadeyo. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy off-white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate brett, to much floral hop and earthy malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and lively carbonation. Medium sour flavor with a medium sour & acidic finish of moderate duration. My expectations where not met.
