3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, generously shared by Dice along with both of the batch 2 versions at a tasting in October. I’m putting my complete notes here for all of them.
1. Brett only. Batch 1: cloudy hazy gold. Offwhite minimal head (only one of the 3 where head remains). Cider, muted taste - flowers, botanical. What I think of as brett isn’t huge ... Muted all around, but totally tasty beer anyway. Medium body, average carbonation. 7/4/7/3/14.
2. Batch 2: pours so gross - gushed the dregs to the top, now it looks like shake shake. Similar to 1 -- more floral, very floral. Mineral, lemon ... But for the most part, pretty muted. 7/2/7/4/14
3. Batch 2 lacto: ... aside from the gushing, this isn’t too different from the other batch 2. Or batch 1 for that matter. 7/4/8/4/15

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle sample thanks to phaleslu during the post Grand Tasting bottle share in our room. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have Brett, grass, citrus, some mild tropical fruit notes, dry, farmhouse funk, decent though I would like to try this again in a different setting.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared thanks to JBPortland ! Pours a hazy pale golden color with a finger or so of white fizz. Soft delicate creaminess with a malted wheat backbone and layers of horsehair, straw, earthy yeast, some dusty lemon zest and wet wood. A bit light handed and foggy on the flavors but fun o try and easy to drink !
