22oz bomber poured into a Duvel oversized tulip.
A - Very hazy golden orange. Big and resilient white fizzy head. Left a healthy amount of lacing to my glass.
S - I get a little bit of tartness. Digging deep I can find that cinnamon and a touch of sweet ripe cherry. Never picked up on really any brett characters.
T - The tartness starts early and reminds me of eating underrippened raspberries straight from the bush. After that initial tartness I get a glance of light, bisquity malts. The tartness is pretty much throughout and is detectable on the sides near the back of my tongue. In the mix of it all comes some spiced flavors from the yeast. Finishes with a nice alcohol warmth.
M - Carbonation seems to be moderate to moderate-high, I liked the way it danced on my tongue with the flavor. Body is on the light side of moderate. The beer seemed pretty dry throughout.
O - This beer is hard to put my finger on. It could possibly use some aging to show more brett and/or sour personality. I really had to dig deep to find aroma traits other than tart berries. Flavor seemed to have complexity but never strayed too far. Great mouthfeel for this beer. Good summer beer, yet could use time to develop more flavors.

22oz bottle split with my wife. Served in a Prairie teku
Thanks to Yoshi Optimator!
A - Glowing orange apricot, with fine bubbled white head. Semi hazy.
S - Lactic and salty minerals, tropical fruit, lychee?, bubblegum, grassy hay, musty wood,
T - Candy tartness upfront, muted pink lemonade, tropical fruit, pineapple, soft caramel malts underneath. The sweetness builds toward the finish while the tartness fades but finishes dry and very crisp and refreshing.
M - Sharp carbonation, light to medium body, crisp and refreshing feel.
Nice balance of sweet and tart both of which are fairly mild. It's not puckering sour but it has a nice tart edge to it. Some woody funk and a nice fruit profile. Crisp and refreshing, a great summer time beer
