On tap at Dexters the Friday before GTMW, pours a hazy amberish orange with an off white head and some spotty lacing, the aroma has a little bit of funk in it with the brett, a little bit of fruit and the barrel come through, but not a ton going on there, the flavor has a front end of some sweet fruit and the finish has some of the apple brandy barrel come through, I think it was also served way too cold, once it warmed up it became a little more sour, was way more sweet than I was expecting, not bad just didn’t blow me away.

Draft on tap at Dexter’s (Madison, WI). Pours a deeper brownish darker hue, reddish tinge with good haziness. A firm frothy whitish head sits atop, laces as a firm layer and sticks around. Aromas are tart hibiscus, lemon, and gentle oak. Touches of vanilla, straw, gentle yeastiness. Touches of apple, pear, and spiciness. Faint kiss of cinnamon. Gentle brett presence, funk, with mellow wild qualities, a bit of apple brandy almost. Hibiscus tartness gives a solid kick with a gentle sourness. Initial is lighter end of the fold with some decent tartness up front, floral and lemon meet some fruity elements, pear and apple meet bread, a bit of biscuit, carmelized feel. Gentle dryness, spice, and a bit of fresh funky. Dry and a bit tart into the backend, spice and mellow brett have some decent play. Funk, spiciness, vanilla and some decent oak. Gentle dryness, fuzziness, and wood tannins as we finish. Decent tartness as times, fairly dry. A bit muddled and spicy at others. Decent to firm barrel presence but not hot. Not bad.
