Bomber into a Duvel tulip. Big thanks to vonschplieffen for sharing, and to a certain nameless package store for selling it to him in CT.

A: Hazy straw body; 1/2" head of fine white froth. Ok retention, spotty lace. Average.

S: Delicate, floral Brett funk. Light fruitiness. Very fresh, very nice.

T: Follows the nose: floral, fruity, funky, and delicate. Slightly sweet for the style, but still quite good.

M: Incredibly soft, perfectly effervescent carbonation. Excellent.

O: This is a great beer if you like Brett in your Saisons, which I do. I think I've still got a bottle of this from 09 down in the cellar, which I bet will be great in a year or two. Bring on the funk!

Cheers!
