750ml into a tulip. The brew appears a clear golden yellow color with a solid white froth. Some patchy lace sticks to the glass as the cap fades.
The smells includes plenty of tropical brett notes that gets dry and yeasty with spice like pepper and some bready grain. There is an herbal element before getting faintly cheesy across the back like footy pils/sulfur.
The taste is dry and spicy with a lot of brett earthiness and pepper/straw grain aspects. Some herbal bitterness and a fruity complexity like pineapple blending to more tropics then apple and pear skins.
This is a light bodied brew with moderate spritzy carbonation. It is super dry, crisp and crushable. The awesomeness of this brew is in the simplicity and subtlety yet amazing drinkability factor. I would crush this regularly if given the opportunity to have it on hand at all times. Great stuff right here.

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.
