Slightly hazy deep yellow color with spotty lacing.

The brett nose is undeniable. Funky hay, grass, and young in ripe white fruit.

The taste is mildly tart, but with a fruity sweet balance. Pear and apple with hay.

It's very dry with prickly carbonation.

It's a pretty solid offering from two great breweries.

Pours a hazy tangerine color with a fizzy, white head that leaves little lacing.

Smells of bright fruits, bread, and a bit of brett.

Tastes of slightly tart fruit notes with some breadiness. Fruits lead off with apple and pear mostly, but also some white grapes. Has supporting juice like sweetness that blends into a slight tart note giving it a candy like feel. It is supported throughout by white bread notes. Funky brett makes an appearance and pulls the finish towards dry.

Mouthfeel is medium with a crisp amount if carbonation.

Overall, this isn't the great beer that I was expecting from such a collaboration, but it is still pretty tasty and has some things going for it.
