Reviewed from notes. Had on-tap at the Swamp Head tasting room. Served in a snifter glass.

A: Hazy deep yellow, with a half-finger of white head and a few big bubbles crawling up the sides of the glass.

S: Tart, earthy, yeasty and funky. Lemon and wheat with some grass and herbal notes.

T: Tart Brett presence dominates up front. Some juicy lemons, a nice light malt with wheat and some grainy character, then more grassy barnyard Brett funk at the end. Dry finish.

M: Light body, good carbonation sensation, low alcohol presence.

O: This is really quite good as it is, but I think it's going to need a little time to let the Brettanomyces presence meld with the other flavors. It has some room to grow - so I took home a couple bottles.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy light orange. Decent white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Hmm. Citrus and vegetables. Odd. More citrus than vegetable, but it's still there. Apples. A hint of brett.

Taste - Again it's got a lot of citrus and apple. Very fruity. Some vegetable notes though. Grainy. Pale malt in the finish. I don't get a ton of brett.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall - I had an old bottle of the regular version of this and it was a brett monster. I'd be interested in aging this. Maybe those weird flavors will pass.
