look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours a very cloudy, pale golden orange color with visible carbonation bubbling up and a two finger pillowy white head that sticks around forever.  Really good retention only slowly fading into a lasting cap.  Looks to be over carbonated.

Prominent musty brett aroma with farmhouse yeast, grass, straw and light fruit.  Very earthy and funky with wild bugs overpowering almost everything else. There's a touch of floral hops and light fruit but the brett dominates.

Medium body and very over carbonated taking away from the mouthfeel and flavor.  Lots of dry, musty funk with the brett overpowering almost everything enjoyable about the base beer.  Nice to have a little of this complimenting the farmhouse yeast but it's way too strong for my liking.  Decent amount of bread/yeast flavor underneath along with grass, straw, faint peppery spice and light fruit.  Once the palate adjusts to strong brett presence, the yeast, spice, apple, pear and alcohol flavors come out.  Not a bad beer but overcarbed and a bit one dimensional.

A - pours a cloudy but bright sun-like yellow color with little bits of floaters. The foam is incredibly thick and mouse like. Good retention but eventually settles leaving chunks of lacing on the glass.

S - aroma is soft. Sort of muted in truth. Faint notes of doughy bread, hay, and ever so slight barnyard funk. As it warms the fruit character starts to sing loud and clear with notes of citrus, apples, pears and white grapes.

T - flavors are crisp and quenching. Clean malty sweetness on the front end with flavors of wheat and hay. A slight zing of citrus in the center which softens as it warms allowing for sweet orchard fruit notes to shine though. Backend is has just a tinge of brett funk. Finish is long and fairly citrusy.

M - medium bodied. Slightly watery texture but in this case it gives a more refreshing quality. High champagne like carbonation.

O - nice beer. Would be especially thirst quenching on a super hot day. I am interested to see how time will treat this one.
