Pours out to a hazy orange-amber with a thick off-white colored head that subsides slowly.
The smell is fragrant and sweet, and I can detect hints of honey and fruit.
The flavor is slightly sweet and bready, just as how the smell hinted. There's a light citrusy bite that goes along well with the carbonation. The hops taste warm and blunt, and remains in the mouth for a subtle, lingering finish.
The mouthfeel is balanced, fairly watery but with a decent bit of carbonation that goes well with the citrusy bite of the flavor.
This is a very drinkable beer that's flavorful and smells great (which is really important to me).

A: Clear copper, some loose bubbles and streams rise quickly. Murkier as I approach the end of the bottle. Champaigne-quality head with better retention. Artwork hints towards a retro-70's coloring and font, a little bland, but concise and clear.
S: Wildflower, honey, tart fruit, a bit of spice. Maybe a little of the classic 'malt and yeast' smell.
T: Tartness is all up front, and a little mild; afterwards I get herbacious notes, some yeast, and rounded off with malt. Dry. Yeasty finish. I would prefer more of the tart-sour character to come through, and would expect it seeing from the refermentation with brett. Maybe it needs more aging?
M: Light, dry, prickly. Perfect combinations for a refreshing effect.
O: Pretty darn good, consider my S & T scores to be 3.87- falling just short of getting rounded up to 4. A good mix of flavors and smells, but they somewhat trip over and end up hindering each other. A beer I will always enjoy, despite some minor shortcomings.
