Clear reddish-brass colored body and clean white dissipating head. Some light visible viscosity. Waxy lactic aroma with buttery, nutty notes. Flavor is like oversweetened tea with some caramel and honey. Mild tartness fails to provide sufficient balance. Syrupy palate like a very sweet soda. This is pure candy beer. Based on this one limited example, this style serves no useful purpose for me.

Piwo jasnobrązowe brązowe, klarowne. Piany praktycznie brak. W aromacie kwaskowość, truskawka, rże. Ciekawe połączenie W smaku podobnie i słodko. Ciekawe. Wysycenie niskie.

Thanks DCLawyer for sharing the bottle! Poured into a snifter showing caramel brown and sparse rust tinged foam. The nose shows notes of sweet brett. The palate is full bodied and lightly carbonated. Moderately tart with a sweet cane sugar forwardness but moderately sweet and not overwhelming.

Bottle at home. Thanks to Theydon Bois for handing me a style rake. Pours clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma of green apples, brown sugar and a little funk. Taste is sweet up front, the green apple sour kicks in and balances out the sweetness. Nice carbonation. Nice enough but couldn?t drink lots of it.
