Hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, honey, vanilla, chardonnay, grass, and brett. Taste of citrus, toast, honey, brett, vanilla, chardonnay, and a dry, earthy, yeast finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle: Pours a clear effervescent deep golden with a large stringy-lacing airy white head. Has a lightly sweet biscuity nose with fresh vinous oaky notes and a touch of light fruits. Starts with good fullness and plenty of carbonation with a semi-sweet biscuity maltiness and plenty of tart vinous oak and grape flavors before a drier tart finish. Well-balanced and complex throughout. This should age well.

Thanks mom. Pours a bright lemon rind yellow with a light haze and one finger of white head. Very nice nose, lots of dry citric notes. Very fruity with notes of raw pineapple juice and pine resin. Awesome, very bretty and earthy with a light funk. Lots of raw fruit in the flavor with a lightly grassy character. Pineapple all over the place. Lightly peppery. Dry palate with lots of fruit and a hint of spice.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours very clear gold with visible effervescence, dense creamy head, and retention that lasts for hours. Aroma is mildly bretty with Chardonnay/white wine limestone minerality responsible for the main character as well as notes of pepper, honey, and melon. Taste is horsey brett bruxellensis funktivity, limestone minerality, and mild oak barrel sourness. Body is super silky, medium mouthfeel, effervescent, dry minerally finish. Overall, this has more in common with a wine than with most beers. Awesomely complex.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours golden hazy straw, fizzy head, massively carbonated coming out (slight gusher). Nose has strong chardonnay character, green apples and pears, pineapple, pepper spices. Tart green apple flavor, oak, brett, with spicy herbal bitterness, citrus rind and malts coming though in the end. Finishes dry. Overall pretty nice, but perhaps a bit overbalanced by the barrel character.
