2009 vintage. Picked this up at Russell's back when Chris was there. Shared with JLindros.
A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a very nice crystal clear dark golden hue with a nice half finger head that fades to light thin wisps.
S - Aromas of light malts, green apple, light funky brett that is very mild. Faint black pepper notes.
T - Taste is light honey sweetness, sweet malts, faint apples, very light funk and brett notes, sweetness is more than I expected. Dry finish.
M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated after these years, crisp dry finish though a bit sticky honey in the middle.
O - Overall, this was a fun beer, the brett is a bit too soft for me. Still, nice to see where this beer goes.

Pours half finger of head on a clear light golden colored body.
The aroma is smokey applesauce, soap, lemon and pear all mixed up in a nice way.
The taste is sharp, approaching bitter. Retains bright fruit: apple and pear.
Crisp texture with moderate carbonation.
Pleasant and enjoyable.

The first pour was nearly clear yellow with a big pillowy head. The last pour was opaque, swimming with yeast.
A pleasant fruitiness dominates the nose. Apple and pear, rich malt, slight vinegar-brett-funk.
Rich complex malts in taste, hints of citrus, ripe juicy pear, brett-funk and concrete dryness.
Extraordinary carbonation, better than champagne. Juicy, with a very long dry finish.
Excellent farmhouse ale from Tomme and the Abbey.
