16 oz @ the Hop and Vine in PDX
a: pours a ruby-orange tint, with a finger of head that falls to a nice pool of white over the top of the glass
s: funky, vegtal, hints of spice, slight lactic note and a hint of funkiness
t: tart, lemon, spicy notes, leather and funk abound, suprisingly bitter, a vegetal/floral note haunts the whole thing making it a cross between bitter vegetable greens and a red flanders ale, a light floral (hiicubus) note also accents everything in beginning nicely, the finish is wonderfully lactic and slightly malty.
m: surprisingly carbonated for a on tap beer, light in body
d: clean, just the right balance of funk and floral. surprisingly smooth for an 8.5% beer. would gladly cellar a bottle or two see where it goes...
Serving type: on-tap

Alright, let's see what two years did here...
Pours a bubbly clear copper with a vigorous initial tow fingers of thick, meringue style foam that falls to a solid quilt of the same. Smells pretty simple: some peppercorn, light malts, some hints of brett (sweet, milky and funky) with just a slight floral note. Nice fruity flavor up front lends some lemon and pineapple juice with woody malt and a hint of tartness in the finish. Medium on light syrup with liberal, but quick dissipating carb and an off dry finish. Tasty beer, but nothing special.
