3.73/5  rDev -11.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: A serious head on a hard pour, sea foam froth with patches that cling to the sides of the glass, large champagne-like bubbles, light copper color - 4.50, S: Tartness on the nose that reminds me of an cider, some powdery yeast and a touch on the side of funky, slightly floral, hint of alcohol on the nose - 4.25, T: Wild yeast almost certainly has played a large role in the flavor profile, brandy flavors and oak are also apparent, crisp and refreshing, grapefruit flavors - 3.50, M: Clean finish - 3.75, D: In the interest of full disclosure - I'm not a huge fan of Brett beers and Brett seems to rule this beer but it is certainly refreshing and one of the better wild ales I've tasted - 3.50

A: Cloudy, Light caraml. Puff of white, frothy head. (looks like a belgian!)

S: Light apple, brandy, wood, vanilla and sweet fruit. Defnite Brett yeasts add a little "funk".

T: The Spécial is aged in oak barrels that previously contained apple brandy, giving it a faint apple cider taste, but not too sweet. Not a lot of wood or brandy charachteristics, but they are there. Brett yeasts add some "funk" which is the backbone.

M: Smooth, light, crisp, refreshing.

D: Excellent... the apple brandy barrel complexity with the smooth, light, crisp. refreshing finnish and the wonderful "funky" Brett yeasts make this excellent.
