750ml bottle poured into New Belgium globe
A: Poured a nice crisp golden with about 2 fingers head
S: Smelled tart and kinda lemony and definitely full of Brett
T: This was a really pleasant beer for a warm day. Seemed more of a wild ale than I was expecting though I was happy about that. Nice lactic acid tones throughout and very well balanced
M: Light mouthfeel with a medium amount of carbonation.
O: More of a wild than I expected and would certainly encourage fans of the wild ales to give this one a try. I would love to have more access to it and will be picking up a case for the summer next chance I get.

750ml bottle into a standard pint glass. The brew appears a pale yellow with some fine particulate stuck in suspension. A fluffy white head sits atop with patchy fingers of lace sticking to the glass. Pretty solid head retention for the style.
The smell is lemony with some wheat and footy grain quality. An earthy brett scent is present focusing the aromatics more towards earthy and somewhat barnyard-like. More sniffs reveal a bit more fruited quality and a bit of spice.
The taste includes a solid amount of wheat along with fruity lemon. Some suggestions of pear mingle with a faint clove-like spice. As more sips are taken, more brett comes forward somewhat like cobwebs, earth and barnyard qualities.
This is a light bodied brew with a light amount of carbonation. Fairly refreshing with an interesting funk inclusion of brett. This was a good beer, it just misses the berliner style a little with its focus on funk. For an american wild, its solid for a berliner, i was happy with just one pour.
