12oz snifter @beerrevolutionedm.

This beer appears a clear medium bronzed amber colour, with one finger of thinly foamy, slightly wispy off-white head, which leaves little beyond some random specks of remote islet lace around the glass as things move south.

It smells of bready caramel malt, musty orange peel, roundly funky yeast, a bit of mouldy pine, and some soft overripe lemon. The taste is more strangely even pale malt - still bready, a tad doughy, and tamely caramelized, understated, rather toothless earthy funk, citrus cream, softly leafy pine, and more month-old lemon.

The bubbles are quite laid-back and generally just supportive, the body a decent medium weight, and mostly smooth, the hops and 'yeast' not really interested in making a fuss. It finishes off-dry, the malt, wavering funk, and somewhat peppy hops all still active and relevant.

A nice, less than challenging introduction in the wild world of Brett - the funk here seems all too polished and denatured, which isn't a bad thing, of course, but I'm assuming that this was made strictly without any other competing yeasts. It's actually rather approachable, despite the bartender's protestations.

12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Burnt orange. Hazy. Smaller head than the other yeasts I've had. Retains pretty well.

Smell - Brett is very strong. Kinda fruity, a little appley. Some hops, too. Citrusy. Not much malt comes through.

Taste - Malt is more prominent right up front, then brett. Earthy brett flavors. They get sharper and fruitier. The earthy brett combines with a substantial hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Dry and acidic. Medium carbonation. Medium body.

Overall - Much more complex than the other yeasts I've had from this series. A bit abrasive and more difficult to drink, but nice.

A: The beer is clear orange amber in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high off white head that gradually died down, leaving a short and pillow-like head consistently covering the surface along with some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: The smell has light to moderately strong and interesting aromas of fruity and funky yeast. Inhaling a deep whiff from the snifter glass produces smells of horse blanket along with hints of ammonia.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors of fruitiness and funk along with bits of sweetness from the underlying malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really enjoyed this beer a lot more compared to the Brettanomyces Lambicus version of Mikkeller's yeast series. It was definitely a lot more drinkable and a beer that you could sip and savor.
