4.3/5  rDev -3.4%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

pour is hazed yellow with tight white head and small bubbles. Nose is brett forward, leathery and dusty up front with assertive tropical fruits, pineapple is nice with a touch of cheese. Taste is also very nice, very Brett forward but depth within it. Dry finish and leathery taste as tropical fruits and citrus take hold, heavy carbonation in a good way with a touch of cheese in the finish.

Thanks BA Dslim for hooking me up with a bottle of this in our most recent exchange, it is greatly appreciated. Prying the cap off reveals a bit of a gusher. Poured into a matching CL cervoise, the brew appears a hazed yellow to cloudy with a fizzy white finger of head. Stringy patches of lace stick to the glass.

This brew smells pretty fantastic. Lemony hints of yogurt with an overall tropical fruit feel. Mild raw oak and earth with a slight tingle of alcohol. It gets progressively more wild and funky as it swirls and warms up.

The flavor is tangy with citrus, oak and funk mildly like yogurt. A bit of rindy bitterness that finishes very clean. There is an overal tropical feel to this that blends well into the other components.

This is a light bodied brew with a lively amount of efforvescent carbonation. Overall this is a solid brew that is super easy drinking with a crazy amount of complexity to nerd out over. I would love to have more of this. It is unfortunate it is/was so limited. Thank you again Dan for the trade.
