3.88/5 rDev +2.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
ST: 750ml poured into a tulip glass.
A: A pretty, clear orange-gold with a thin white head and fast champagne carbonation. Leaves spotty lacing.
S: Lemon, orange, wet stone, brettanyomyce funk, fruit doughnut, pilsner edge, a sour lemonade.
T: Very bitter and sour lemon with a hint of grapefruit upfront, dry stone and sour orange linger with peach and herbal notes and a light spice.
M: Dry and bitter / sour / tart.
O: Interesting and complex beer. The sour and bitter notes of stone fruit mesh with citrus and herbal spicy funk. How the beer would change with age would be worth knowing.

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.
