Bottle, 2014 vintage thanks to Clownisseur! Pours clear golden, medium fizzy white head, decent residual and lacing. Aroma is pretty buggy, Brett, some fecal notes, basement must, oak tannin, mushrooms, feet, lemon, and mineral water. Flavor is pretty lightly tart, pretty high funk, mushrooms and basement notes, earthy. Lightish body. Perhaps I should have enjoyed this a couple of years ago; sorry Brandon :(.

Bottle @ Steasy’s. Thanks for sharing! Gold pour with a small head. Lemon and tart fruit candies. Sweet peach cordial. Flavor is a touch sharp. Mild citric bite. Some lactic character. A bit buggy. Fairly nimble, active carbonation. Tasty stuff.

Hazy light yellow pour with a nice white head. Bright lactic nose, with some funk. Lightly sour, lots of funk and hoppy goodness. Really nice.

Bottle shared by Derek, thanks. Cloudy golden pour. Fruity sour aroma. Taste is dry from barrel I’m guessing. Pretty good.

Bottle shared by a friend. Pours clear yellow to gold with a thick white head. Aroma of oak, lemony sourness and tropical fruit. Malty and oaky flavor with tropical fruit before a funky brett and lemon finish.

SpongeRuiner (1114) - Michigan, USA - MAR 21, 2015
On tap at HopCat. Pours a frosty deep golden color. With a sticky white lacing and head. An earthy grassy citrus aroma. A very refreshing sip of slight tart lemons. A bubblegum flavor comes in towards the back half and finishes it off. A dry finish. Good stuff.

750 ml. bottle. It pours a nice clear deep golden color with a medium fizzy off white head. The aroma some light funk, straw, hints of stone fruit and white grape. Nice subdued oaky notes seem more Chardonnay derived to me with the more tropical/white grape thing going on. The flavor is pretty much the same with more prominent barrel oak and grape notes. Light hints of caramel and stone fruit before a mildly soapy, phenolic finish. Almost no sourness here, just a little acidity and funk. It has a decently full body, but a dry finish befitting a brett beer. Very pleasant stuff.
