Bottle shared by Dreadnaught33. Thanks Jonathan!

This is my second time enjoying this beer. The beer is a hazy, golden straw hue with a small ring of pure white head. The aroma brings funk, lemon, white wine, hay, sweet tarts. Sour with some tangy citrus notes. A touch of oak with some nice brett presence. Light to medium in body with a puckering finish. Pretty tasty.

Nice golden straw color on the brew, ring of bone white head. Some lacing with a swirl.

The smell seems heavy on the Brett and wine, not much oak or tartness present. Funky, straw malt little bit of lemon zest as well. The taste follows suit but with an extra layer of sweetness and a bit of a wisp of sour in the aftertaste. A very dry and falls off with a sweet tart sort if powdery sweet sour. Lemongrass as well. Feel is ok, a bit watery and leaves a lemony sort of tartness on the tongue.

Overall good but not amazing. Little disappointing for me.
