750 mL gusher of a bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy and murky orange. Not much of a head. Thin collar.

Smell - Acidic. Very bretty. Hoppy too. Citrus and grapefruit. Musty.

Taste - Citrus hop, but gets tangy quickly. Lemony tang. Earthy brett is strong.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Bitter and mildly sour. Flavorful for its size.

Overall - Got tiresome after a while.

Bottle: Poured a cloudy orangey color ale with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and light lacing notes. Aroma of light citrus and clementine notes is quiet refreshing. Taste is also dominated by citrus notes with some clementine notes which are very refreshing and light tangy and tart finish. Body is quite full with medium carbonation. I just took this out of the fridge without knowing exactly what I was about to drink but very good beer even though sour side is not that apparent.
