Bottle (2012)

The Banshee
Chico, Ca

Hazed golden with a quickly forming, moderately sized near-white head, leaving irregular spiderwebs of lace down the glass.

Some citrus notes (lemon and orange peel) and mild Brett character make for a pleasant aroma, along with a bit of bread.

The flavor is similar, with only a mild Brett presence butting up against citrus zest and lemon along with some sweet, bready, malt, and mild pepper.

Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation.

Simple but tasty.

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.
