3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Hazy yellow ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Decent retention. The nose is grainy, lemony, funky and a hint spicy. Medium-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor delivers nice brett dryness, breadiness, moderate bitterness and light acidity. Finishes crisp, clean and fairly dry. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014 My Bottom Line:
Coniferous brettanomyces builds floral and citrusy fireworks which can be witnessed while being hypnotized by an underlying oily, vanilla-rich oak.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam settles atop the cloudy blond.
-The big, natural bubbles remain soft on the palate.
-The flavor profile is also peppery at times.
-The rusticity in this one is ably balanced with the oak. Both are nicely aromatic.

Pour out of 750 mL, thanks Dave! Very hazy orange yellow pour with thin but lasting white head, thin bubbles, aroma has notes of oak, pear, peach hints of spice, grassy notes as well with a touch of crackery biscuit, white grape, hints of earth. Taste is a nice mix of very funky and earthy brett, some pineapple, grape, hints of white fruit, very spicy grass hints of slight tart, finishing fairly dry and funky. Very tasty.
