look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

got this bottle from a beer rep

A: small head, whiskey color

Smell: bourbon, funk, farmhouse, alcohol

Taste: whiskey, acidity, slight tart, vanilla, barrel

Mouth-feel: Over carbonated still, rolls down the tough nicely but an acidic burn going down

Overall: Not too impressed considering the breweries that made this brew.

30 minutes later, these brew has really opened up. The flavors complement each other perfectly. THIS BEER IS FOR AGING!

Appears a complex light caramel copper note with light beige head forms thick with a lot of lacing...aroma has tart notes of mild citrus hints of bubblegum and apricot with other wild yeast components...domesticated yeast in this sense including Brettanomyces Bruxellensis ferment very clean compared to the thought that some of these beers are going to be full of barnyard and funk, I'll admit Brett has those tendencies but in this well aged bottle I get none of that character. Just highly carbonated pale ale full of some interesting characteristics including honey notes, bubblegum, green apple, and fresh sliced pear notes. Overall the flavor is fantastic a really enjoyable sessionable complex ale in all it's glory I'll include more of those descriptors in the flavor profile, can't wait to try some Crooked Stave ales...a lot of Brett gone wild beers from them.
