3.31/5  rDev -23.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

Appearance – Pours a semi translucent dark color with a mix of brown, copper, ruby, and amber. Has a massive head and huge lacing.

Smell – Brett, grape, white wine, and bitter lime.

Taste – Brett, grape juice, and somewhat bitter white wine.

Mouthfeel – Lightly carbonated and dry. I’m surprised that this is 9%abv. Feels like 5% tops. Although it had a massive head with great lacing, it felt somewhat flat.

Drinkability – This wasn’t as good as I expected for one of the top rated Bière Bruts. If I see this again, I’ll pick it up for another review in case I had a bad bottle.
