3.13/5 rDev -17.6%
Pours a hazy light orange marmalade color with a large foamy white head which fades pretty quickly down to less than one fingers width and then vanishes. Leaves no lacing. I can smell the Brett pretty clearly, as well as horse blanket, green apples, and funk.
The taste is less acidic than I thought it would be, and less acidic than I hoped for. There is some apple, grapes, light Brett, and mild tartness from the Brett. Actually tastes somewhat sweet. This doesn't taste bad, but it does taste like it didn't come together the way it was intended to.
Light bodied with above average carbonation, and a slightly sweet aftertaste, and a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Like I said, this doesn't taste bad, but it does taste like it didn't come together properly. Overall, not a successful collaboration.

750ml. Caged and corked bottle poured into a snifter. A little above fridge temp.
Pours out a hazy/ cloudy sunset orange color, nearly golden. About a fingers worth of white head full of big bubbles that soon after faded to a ring and eventually nothing. Not much lacing to speak of.
Very floral Brett aromas. Slight hints of lemon citrus and must. Not too complex of an aroma.
Again, very floral, rose like almost. Hay, Lemon citrus with just a slight barnyard/ basement must.
A rather assertive carbonation. An airy mouthfeel, fairly light to medium in body. A bit of tartness, but nothing comparable to must popular wild ales.
Not a bad brett beer. Not terribly complex, but good for someone who is just getting into sours and Brett beers. I'd prolly come back to this if it wasn't for the rather big price tag as its quite the drinkable wild.
