Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours white gold with a thick white head and a fruity aroma. There is a slightly sour light malt flavor with a moderately bitter wine finish. Brett is nicely dosed to keep the brew more drinkable. bhensonb (16238) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 31, 2016
Waxed bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma of pale fruits and very light Brett. Near med body. Flavor is fruit, wood and a level of Brett that is delightful.
