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.

Aroma has tart tones with white wine and citrus. Also some mild milky tones. Flavour has sweet fruity tones, white wine, acidic notes, citron and white wine. White wine is strong with this one which I unfortunately find as a bad thing.
