Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a murky light yellow-orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, funk, acidic, citrus zest, and slight rose petal aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour grain, funk, and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

this is brilliant, some of the best beer these guys have come out with. tangerine, lime, and lemon zest as flavor agents, the lime is the strongest of the three, wight he tangerine right in tow. hazy pale blonde in color, effervescently heady, tart to the nostrils with all that citrus. the rose petals add a pollen element and some distinct perfume character. bretty and lacto heavy, hard to tell in flavor where the citrus zest stops and the bacterial fermentation begins, but i like that. the rose is subtle, but the oak leaves a nice earthy sweetness that ties this all together. more brett than lacto as it swallows, with more dry tartness than acid specifically. carbonation is amazing, some say too much, but its right on for me. maximally refreshing with the low alcohol too, sometimes trinity makes unnecessarily strong beers, but this one is right in the all day drinking honey hole. so much citrus flavor, really pale malt presence, and all the funk you could ask for. a little lime dominated, i think more rose could add a layer, but i love this as it stands. expensive, but justifiably this time around.

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.

Pours a cloudy/murky ripe banana yellowish orange color with a one finger frothy white head that has decent retention, slowly fading into a lasting ring. Minimal spotty lacing.

Funky, bretty earthy aroma with some champagne like effervescence. Slightly oaky tannis and subtle cirsp light fruit notes, namely apple and pear. The brett character is very prominent in the nose.

Very dry bretty, funky medium body that's on the lighter end of medium body with crisp light fruit notes and bone dry finish. The brett character is dominent, too much so infact, overpowering the subtleties of the other flavors. Very one dimensional.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle number 331-10. Lightly waxed capped 750

Pale, cloudy straw golden color with a quickly fading white head.

Aroma and flavor both clash between fruity and sour lemon with strong Brett and barnyard funk. Refreshing and light, but not well balanced. Body is medium thick with fine carbonation and a watery finish.

A pleasant lemon and Brett table beer, but lacking depth or balance.

Poured a golden color, thinnish pour with a small white head. Nose is like anotherreviewer said "horse balnket" sourness, like citus, lemon. Taste is not overly hitting me. Citrus, light and thin on body and taste. Mouthfeel is tart and light, not very drinkable and a few of us were rather let down. Worth a shot I suppose but not for me.
