A: Gorgeous hazy orange. Great foamy head on the pour - about an inch or more. Amazing lacing.
S: Warm clove notes. That horsey Brett aroma is there but it's faint to start and gets stronger as you drink. Nice bready finish.
T: Honestly, with the smell I expected a huge bready/yeasty bomb. But, not so much. This is a subtle Brett it's not going to hit you over the head with that flavor. Drinkable.
M: It's heavy to me. Which is surprising because it's so drinkable. This brew dries quickly on your palate - surprisingly quick.
O: A tough one for me. Great example of the style. But, I think if I aged it more that familiar horse blanket/barn yard aroma would come out even more. And, that Brett yeast would do even more. I'm going to buy another and cellar it, then maybe revisit this review.

22oz bottle served in a Prairie Teku
Thanks to Yoshi Optimator for this one! Cheers!
A - Hazy amber/apricot color with 2 fingers of soapy tan bubbles. Zero lacing with a thin cap.
S - Earthy citrus, acidic, white wine, granny smith apples, sharp sourdough bread, dusty grains, over ripe tropical fruit, pineapple and mango, sweet but funky. Fruity alcohol coming through.
T - Follows the nose with earthy citrus, grainy bread, peppery, old grass, apple juice, muted lemons, dry yeast. There's a hint of acidity, but not as much as the nose describes. The finish brings more pepper along with some bitter melon rind.
M - Annoyingly high carbonation, you can't hold a drink in your mouth for more than 2 seconds or it just completely turns to foam. The body is thin for a split second. So you have extreme opposites.
I'm not exactly sure but pretty sure this is a few years old. An interesting beer for sure. The mouthfeel threw it off a little for me. I'm not a fan of swallowing straight foam. Great aroma. The funk is delicate without being light, very earthy with notes of sourdough bread and tropical fruit.
