4.46/5 rDev +1.4%
Batch 4, so I've been storing this one for a couple of years.
A: Brilliant golden color, with a small white head the dissolves into a ring. Wish there was a little retention. Effervescent. A little haze from the yeast.
S: Sweet and tart fruity smell, and with a strong brett kick. It's almost like a white wine mixed with brett, which now that I think about it is the point, I suppose.
T/M: Tart and funky. Lactic. Funky. Woody. Distinct grape flavor -- even more like white wine than I remember it being a couple of years ago. A little grainy on the finish, with a mild earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and dry with low-ish carbonation.
O: Sad to finish off my last CdC, but beer is made for drinking, no? Excellent.

3.95/5 rDev -10.2%
From notes. Batch 2, 3, 4, and 5 tasted side by side. Batch 2 seemed much different than the other two and is worth scoring separately. The overall score is the score of the newer recipe.
Batch 3, 4, 5:
Tangerine peach color, transparent with a bit of haze. Lighter, more transparent edges. A small cap fades to a ring fairly quickly.
The aroma is fairly tart, white grape, lemon zest, and peach. Acidic and some musty funk.
The flavor is quite sour, although not quite as extreme as the batch 2. Just a touch of sweetness from the malt, then the white grape comes through a bit. Peach, a bit of tangerine, and then some lemon zest in an escalating sour flavor.

Bottle served in a Half Acre snifter. Batch #5. Big thanks to cosmicevan for the share.
A: Pours a hazy lemon color with a light orange body. A thin white head forms on the pour and recedes quickly to a thin ring. Some splotches of lace are left behind.
S: Fruity with a little acetone. Sour lemons, a little lactic with some white grape sweetness and tartness.
T: Lactic sourness, some cheek puckering dryness. Oaky finish with some lemon grass and white grape.
M: Light bodied. Puckering tartness with a dry, mildly acitic finish. Medium carbonation
O: Very nice beer. Definitely enjoyed the subtleties of this and the mouthfeel was spot on.
