3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy golden color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma consists of vinous notes with some tart notes clearly identifiable. Taste is a mix between some vinous notes with some tart notes and light funky yeast undertones. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Very solid mix between complex Brett notes with well-balanced acidity level.

Bright lemon color, copious amounts of head & lace. Absurd stickiness all over my glass. Beautiful.
Smells like magic: so yeasty/grassy/funky, plenty sour, Brett galore. All of this bleeds onto the palate, assaulting my tongue with salvos of flavor. Damn, this may be the best Brett beer I've had yet. Super impressed.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Generously shared by Harpreet at the Livermore Saloon. Thanks! It pours a hazy light gold color with a fluffy white head. The aroma is full of moldy peaches and light farty funk. There’s some breadiness in there with wood, white wine and citric acid. The flavor has light, sweet tangerines, tropical fruit, sauvignon blanc grapes and spicy, funky brett in the finish. It’s only lightly sour with a full body and creamy mouthfeel. I wasn’t into the fecal heavy aroma, but the flavors and mouthfeel were superb. Really nice sour.

Bottle thanks to Diego. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy white head that lasts leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is strong oak, wine, and yeast. Thick mouthfeel with fruit and light oak with nice dry finish. Really enjoyed this one.

Bottle shared by thebitterendaz. Hazy yellow pour with light herbal and citrus aroma notes. Flavor starts out slightly tart with notes of wine barrel, lemon and pear, then gradually finish to a more funky, spiced finish. Really drinks like a 1/2 gueuze, 1/2 farmhouse beer. ABV is very well hidden - so crisp and easy drinking.

Bottle, thanks Jack for sharing. This was quite tasty. Reminded me of Hill Farmstead Ann and Tired Hands HandFarm—both wine barrel aged saison/sours. Lots of funk- pineapple, cotton candy, light stone fruit in the nose with a good dose of vinous white wine barrel. Flavor follows suit with a strong barrel finish. Great beer with booze well hidden.
