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.

Poured from a 750ml corked and caged bottle into a tulip glass. Bottling code on the neck but couldn't decipher it - but I know it's pretty fresh as it's a new released. It's a slightly cloudy golden color with massive carb streams. It had a large foamy white head that never settled below a finger of foam. Great lacing with some sticking.

The aroma is fruity with apple and pear with a bit of funk as well. Not as much funk as I was expecting though. A little mild for me. The taste follows the aroma with good fruity base, some spicy yeast and a little bit of brett funk. Again, not as much as I was expecting or wanting. It's not bad tasting at all but feels like it still needs to develop as it's mild. Medium mouthfeel with tons of carbonation (too much for me as it's giving me huge burbs). Mild aftertaste.

Overall, a good but not great beer at this stage. Going to cellar a couple and see what happens as I know both breweries have some great beers so hoping that this is just a little young. Avail here in TX. Rotation - not too impressed at this point so going to cellar some
