The beer pours a brilliantly clear golden yellow with a hint of amber. The frothy white head quickly subsides to a thick collar. Strong flavor from the Brettanomyces. The nose has an earthy mustiness with cider apple and pear fruit notes. Very inviting.
The taste is slightly acidic and tart. Begins with a hint of fruity sweetness of apples, but quickly moves to a bone dry crisp tart finish. Very effervescent carbonation. The strong carbonation seems to make the beer even more dry and acidic. Very interesting beer. The flavor does not quite reach the heights of complexity as the scent. I would enjoy having this again, yet I imagine it will soon be hard to find.
