Big thanks to eyebereej for sending this one! Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12.7 oz. bottle into a Cigar City snifter.
A: Pours a rosy peach color, nearly clear, with a thin white ring of foam that fades quickly. Fairly low visible carbonation.
S: Big Brett funk, sour and fruity tart, with lactic tang as well. Very nice aroma.
T: Lactic tartness, Brett funk, underripe raspberries, woody oak with dry tannins. Some barnyard and lemony citric acid as well. It finishes with more lactic tartness and quite dry.
M: Light body, though carbonation sensation seems a little less than expected. Alcohol well-hidden.
O: This was quite enjoyable. I was a little disappointed in the beer as it warmed up - it stayed about the same, and given the flavor profile I expected the fruit and the levels of funk to open up some. This, I think, kept it from being one of the very best. Still, very good and glad to have had the chance to try it.
