picked this one up around the time of the release, but never got around to opening it...until now. enjoyed from a russian river flute/tulip.

a - brew pours a murky orange brown...same as the color scheme on the label. finger of fizzy head half vanishes after the pour and the champagne like carbonation keeps replenishing the fizz that zaps away.

s - nose is nice, leading with crisp brett and some soft lemon notes. tart tingly alcohol phenols tickles the nose. sweet and grassy.

t/m/o - fairly complex leading with some plasticy brett that is quickly washed over by a bright clean vibrant fruity burst and then a dryness sweeps over. the first thing i noticed was the feel which has a prickly carbonation, but a creaminess to it at the same time...similar to authentic belgian stytles. the dryness on the finish is a bit off putting. there is a really nice sweetness in there, but too much other noise that comes with it for this to be a good drinking beer. i'm definitely let down since this is 2 great breweries taking on a style that one would expect to be a slam dunk but sadly doesn't really work. i had heard mixed things about it when it was fresh so i held off and although can't compare to fresh to say if it has improved or not, what i can say is that it is pretty meh for the price point and the players at the table. might not finish the
