look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

375ml cork & caged bottle poured into tulip. Bottled 5/24/12, a little over 2 years old.

A- Pours a translucent orange golden, a slight white head forms that quickly recedes to a fairly flat top, carbonation slightly on the low side, light clingy lacing.

S- Heavy brett influence, blonde ale underneath with some very subtle spices, light barnyard funk with slight hay, grass, and floral aspects. About average aroma strength, some nice subtle complexities influenced by the brett.

T- Light sweet blonde ale malts with a balanced bitterness, some brett influenced barnyard qualities, not overly sour (just a hint), finishes with some subtle and balanced spices, hay, and a grassy touch. Nice complexity, maybe not my favorite beer taste wise but overall nicely done.

M- Light tingly carbonation, medium bodied, fairly drinkable with a light boozy touch, finishes with a little bit of a bitter kick.

O- This was a fairly solid beer with nice subtle complexities that is definitely better then what the rating deems it to be right now. I imagine the brett may have come out a bit with the 2 years of age on it, improving it overall. Definitely worth the try and will easily hold up at least another couple years.
