4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orangish copper colored body under a large frothy and creamy bone white head with great retention and lacing. I just love those craggy heads that tower up over the rim of the glass with no intention of running over the sides. Aroma is fruity and funky and beautiful. The brett is there, but maybe not as fully developed versus some of the older bottles that I’ve had. A little citrus, some hops, and a dozen other things that I can’t specifically identify. Kind of floral in character. Flavor is dry with plenty of funk and brett. Some leather, yeast, alcohol, hoppiness, sugary and slightly tart at the same time, and somehow the malt is still there below this all. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with alot of foaming carbonation. Finishes bone dry with lingering tart bretty goodness. Overall, I can’t really do this beer justice. It’s a classic, love it or hate it, there’s no denying it’s unique and complex.

pours amber with a powerful cushiony head that never seems to go away. Mesmorizing floral aroma with notes of rose petal, lavender, nutmeg, and white pepper. Fizzy mouthfeel. Chalky, floral, and earthy tones combine with exotic hoppiness and finish dry and champagne like. Underneath lays restrained and balanced brettanomyces characteristics. A truly unique,exotic, and unmatchable beer.

Bottled. Had an excellent, citrus flavor with a sharp finish, like a radler. Strong carbonation makes this easy to drink. I was very impressed.

Pours gold, with big white billowing head that lasts. Strong aroma of yeast, souriness, and some hops. Tons of carbonatoin bring a dry souriness to the nose and palate. Residual bitterness a bit harsh, but the beer is a bit young.
