Poured from bomber to snifter

A: Pours a bright yellow with a small white head which fades quickly. The only positive about the appearance is the bright body.

S: Yum! wild yeast with strong lemony citrus and some earthy dull earthy tones. Very strong appealing scent.

T: very surprising, the taste is no where near the intensity of the smell. lemon and yeast come out the most, with small amounts of earthiness. The taste is very dull compared to the smell. The funkiness is still there, but not what you expect. As this beer gets warmer it the funky flavor come out a lot as does the sour. Serve this just below room temp.

M&D: Mouthfeel is thin and decently carbonated. Drinkability is very high, since the taste is mild a person could do a bomber easily.

Thanks Natasharai for the engagement drink! (807 characters)

750 ml bottle, barrel TBB 106, bottle 1283 3/13. Pours slightly hazy straw yellow with a small fizzy white head that quickly goes to a small dusting.

The aroma is tart and funky with some brett, tropical fruits and flowers.

The flavor is lots of tart acidic sourness with some spices and a bit of iron. The mouthfeel is rather thin and watery with no carbonation.

Overall, an OK sour. Lots of acidic sourness, but very thin, watery, under-carbonated and simple. (464 characters)

Thanks to jjfoodie for sharing this bottle.

The beer pours a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of tart, funky lemons with some funny Belgian yeast mixed in. The flavor is heavy on the brett. I get a lot of dry, leather components as some strong barnyard funk. There is also a little bit of lemon in the flavor and some light to medium tartness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. (408 characters)

Pours a hazed straw color with much effervescence. A modicum of head retention & lacing

S: Grassyness, sourness, lime zest

T: Follows the nose, lemongrass, white pepper, pears & light grapefruit notes up front. Lovely dryness, delicate spicyness ( Keffir? ) . Finishes tart, with lovely tropical & citrus fruit, plus a little white pepper

MF: Light bodied, delicate carbonation, dryness

Super drinkability, albeit bloody expensive. Could drink this all summer long , if someone else was buying (503 characters)
