Bottle @ Beer Lady. Pour is hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma and flavor are lightly tart with hints of woody spice and peach. Light body and crisp dry finish. Carbonation is lively like a bottle of champagne. Great beer!

From the 750 ml. bottle. 2016 batch. A slightly cloudy pale yellow-olive colored pour with a fizzy white head that builds up and fades within seconds. Sediment. The aroma emits esters of green grape, Brett, toasted white bread, yeast, spice, and maybe a grapefruit zest. Medium body but also very soft yet carbonated. The taste is as a wild ale should be with a good tart and sour flavor, some bready notes, and a clean herbal finish that lingers briefly. This was decently done but I cannot justify spending $22 again on it when I can find others with the same characteristics for half the price.

Tognetta (822) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 5, 2017
Amarelo translcido, sem espuma. Aroma de muita uva verde, misto de pssego, seca, lembra muito pr seco. Paladar de leve dulor e adstringncia prevalecente. Das quatro Goose a de menor impacto, no to agressiva quanto a Juliet, mais equilibrada no dulor, mas fica devendo no paladar.

Draft. Pours hazy gold. Aroma lightly of peach, lemon, and some funk. Flavor matches, over a crackery malt base. Nice stuff.

750 ml bottle shared with the wife. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a large fluffy off white head. The aroma and flavor have lightly tart citrus and stone fruit, Brett funk, wood, the wine barrel character is soft, this is a 2013 bottle so the Brett is more of a presence, I have had this a few times before and newer versions show a bit more tart fruit, still very good.

BillWyce (1051) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 1, 2016
2016 release. Pours lightly hazy straw color with a small, thin head that was gone quickly. Sour aroma from the Brett, with a note of white wine. A light note of peach as it warms. Body is a touch lighter than medium, and lightly oily. Dry finish with some astringency. Wine-like flavor that gives way to a sour Brett note at the back. Some sweetness from the peaches up front as it warms some.
