Thanks to JLindros for sharing this bottle.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice clear golden hue with a nice half finger head that faded to leave light wisps and a thin halo.

S - Aromas of loads of barrel, as Jared said "oak city". Loads of funk, great brett brux, nice lacto notes. The base beer is simply a vessel for oak and funk, great.

T - Taste is just like the nose, awesome barrel notes, oaky vanilla, great funk especially brux. Almost buttery, great tartness and funk, very solid, very oaky and funky.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, almost a slick finish.

O - Overall this beer was very nice, just had the misfortune of being drank after bretta rose. Still tasty.
