On tap at PreFunk tonight... Pours a hazy orange with a pretty flimsy white cap and no real lacing.

Nose is a bit funky, but with a bigger lean toward fruity esters... a bit of something that I associate with white peppercorns.

Flavor and aromas mirror each other... the brett shows as a sorta dank/dusty cellar essence.. damp hay... peachy esters play with the limited residual sugars and linger for the finish.

Body and carbonation are fine.... Okay brew... Seems sorta pedestrian given the pedigree... Though, there is nothing wrong with that in the grand scheme.

3.5's across the board.
