750ml bottle, Batch 1, bottled 11/2013. Thanks Ryan! Poured into a minisnifter on 4/26/2014.

A- Light pink body, with a big and beautiful pink hue head that retains quite well, and is quite effervescent. Lots of thick lacing all over. Looks like grapefruit juice, and more importantly, looks incredibly refreshing.

S- Grapefruit, citrus, floral nose with a slight funk evoking leatheriness. It's a very strange combination, especially after looking at how pretty the beer looks.

F- Grapefruit, lime, lemon flavours in some combination. Sweet pale malt brings a bit of breadiness. The floral character seems to be contributing an interesting finish, it's almost like chewing on flower petals. Some dry leathery brettanomyces funk throughout. Very interesting flavour profile that does take a little bit of getting used to.

M- Lighter in body, well carbonated and not too fizzy nor flat. However, the finish is just odd and I believe it is the combination of the strong floral character that makes me feel like I'm chewing on petals, and the dry leatheriness of the Anchorage Brettanomyces strain. It's just not for me.

O- Great concept, absolutely stunning looking beer that brings a lot of citrus flavours, including the lime that would do very well on its own (and does, in Brother Soigné!) but the hibiscus or floral aspects of this beer really does not mesh that well with the Brett.
