Pours a hazy dark orange color with a two finger head that dissipates slowly and leaves a thick ring of lacing. Decent carbonation. Smells of bretty funk, mustiness, sour cherries, tiny bit of mango, peaches, good amount of lemon, white grape, a tiny bit of sweet breadiness. Taste starts with the dry hop qualities. Get peaches and mango, as well as a tiny bit of grapefruit. Then gets much more tart in the middle, along with notes of lemon, funk and some oak. The finish brings just a tad bit of sweetness, but is just overtaken by the funkiness from the brett, as well as more peach, mango, grapefruit, almost a white grape flavor, cherry, tropical fruit. You can tell the beer has been sitting in oak barrels for a few years, as the oak is very apparent in the finish. Very tart, puckering, acidic finish that lingers on the palate and makes you want to take another sip. Crisp, slightly creamy, and sticky mouthfeel with a medium body. The dry hopping adds a whole new dimension to the beer. Extremely complex sour for a reasonable price. This is hands down the best beer I’ve had by New Belgium so far.

On tap at the Malt and Vine.
A - Glows a gorgeous deep apricot. Snow white foam piled on top. Feeling optimistic.
S - Fruitiness of stone fruits: apricot and peach. Sourness of passion fruit. Grapefruit notes from citra hops. Crisp, and the aromas mix wonderfully.
T - Pleasantly tart up front backed by juicy passion fruit and wooded funk. The hops come on the finish bringing the grapefruit from the nose. I was sceptical about the dry-hopping but it really adds an added level of interest and complexity. This is very crisp and refreshing. Delicious.
M - Medium-bodied. Juicy, woody and dry. Compliments the flavour.
O - This beer really surprised me. I didn't think I was going to like the dry-hopping but I did find it elevated the experience. I would have liked a little more wood and funk but, taken as it is, it's a very clean and refreshing beer.
