The beer comes in a yellow orange color.

The aroma has some barnyard funk and Bret character along with some fruit notes.

The flavor follows with some tart, a good amount of funk, and then this beautiful sweet citrus and tropical fruit flavor. A sweetness in there as well.

This is a good beginner Bret beer as the Bret character is not too strong and aggressive as well as this beer having fruity sweetness.

With age, this beer still drinks real well.

Pours a slightly cloudy, pale, dark, yellow. The head develops, and drops, quickly resulting in no head after a minute. No lace.
Smell is delightfully sour and musty. Some malt, spices, hint of hops maybe. Good balance.
Taste is malty, musty, banana (light), spices. Well balanced.
Warming, drying, medium-light body with a tart, sharp effervescence.
This particular bottle I purchased in November 2012, 13 months ago. It's really good.
