Pouring at the grand tasting at RBSG in Philly. Pours a clearish gold with a thin white head. Odd old banana and sage notes on the nose. Weird flavors and aromas, I had no idea what was going on with this. Sweet and medicinal, odd bretty character. Very strange.

This poured a murky darker yellow to gold with a white head. Aroma was of lots of ffunk, but not sour, some swage and garbage in their too. Flavor was just off, vomit garbage and lightt bretty notes. Something went seriously wrong with this one.

Hazy golden color with a small, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, vanilla, brett, spices, toast, toffee, and light alcohol. Taste of citrus, spices, brett, light oxidation, with some sweetness, but finishing dry, with light alcohol
