A 22 ounce bottle picked up at the local co-op. Poured into a tulip glass...
Pours a hazy, vibrant orange color with about a centimeter of foamy, pure-white head. Head deteriorates quickly, but leaves some white strands as lacing on the glass and numerous legs through the surface of the liquid.
Aroma is of orange citrus, tart lemon, faint funk, cardamom, a touch of caramel, clove, and a bit of cinnamon.
It tastes strongly of orange and lemon citrus, with a tart tinge from the brett. The spices are relatively indistinguishable, but do coalesce into an almost chocolate-like finish. It's like biting into a tart orange that has been drizzled in chocolate (by what I hope was a fancy chocolate-drizzling fountain) and rolled in some spices.
Mouthfeel is decent; it's amply carbonated, but finishes rather dry and a touch sticky. Nothing special there.
Overall, a good offering that's refreshing and enjoyable. A nice change of pace from some of the more prevalent styles.
