Bottle shared by my friend doug. The beer is a clear gold with a big head of white foam. The aroma has fruity brett musty notes. Sort of funky. Nice funk character throughout. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty good.

j12601 (9286) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Bottle. Huge gusher, so got maybe ½ to ¾ of the bottle, which is not great when these things aren’t exactly cheap. Pours, or explodes, a hazed gold with a thick white head. Small yeasty grey floaties in the bottom. Sweet wood, musk, funk. Medium-bodied, soft sweetness, a bit of wheat, musk, a nice floral note. Dries out a touch, moves to hay and floral notes, long slow wood and brett. Very easy drinking. Wish I had more of it.
