Served from a 375ml bottle into HF stemmed Tulip.

Pours a very clear gold with quick finger of bubbly white head that leaves no lacing. Smell is straight up funky brett and citrus. Some mild Tangerine and orange is present. Don't know about Mandarins though. Taste is beautiful. Definantly some Citrus, but I still get tangerine and orange. Barrel flavors are vanilla and oak with light grape and green apple notes. Quite sour. Mouthfeel is intensely carbonated and quite sour with a lingering dryness akin to a nice Champagne.

Overall an absolutely beautiful beer that reminds me of a Geueze. Should have drank this last October when I got it, but never the less, it's still pretty awesome.
