3.56/5 rDev -7.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a Burley Oak snifter (Batch #2 NOV/12)
A: Opaque blonde hay color.
S: Lots of farmhouse, funk and pine. The brett complicates the notes a lot. Light grapefruit.
T: I might have preferred the fresh brett-less version. It is a bit watery towards the end. This was probably much better a year ago. Lots of farmhouse and yeasty funkness. Faintly tart with an old hop pine taste. Not too much to my liking. I wish it was either a lot hoppier or more bitter/tart.
M: Bubbly but overall pretty smooth.
O: I wish there was a bigger body with bolder flavors here. It was all kind of muted. However, I thought with the Brett, that the hops might last longer (silly), but it's not like I had been aging it. I only got it like a month ago.

4.15/5 rDev +8.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
A: Orange-tangerine at 50% saturation (colour is somewhat muted). Fizzy head reduces to a ring pretty quickly.
S: Grassy must, earthy, some orange citrus. Smells not unlike a saison-brett, but without the spicy yeast.
T: Musty tangerine skins breaking to lemon wedges. This does not taste like an IPA with some funk. The brettanomyces are very well integrated, obviously has been given time to properly develop into something else entirely. Think well-executed saison-brett but without the spice, and more citrus character.
M: Mild carbonation which suits the silky mouthfeel.
O: I really enjoyed this, though for the cost of the bottle I don't think I'll revisit. This is a much more elegant beer than I had expected. Great complexity and maturity, you can drink this like a gueuze or nice wine.
