Very lively and refreshing. A nice summertime porch beer.

LOOK: Golden color; slightly cloud (appropriate to the style) with a big effervescent white crown. Big bubbles. "Bumpy" head reminds me of a cloud.

SMELL: Slightly tart bouquet.

TASTE: Not as sour as I'd expect from something that features brett (though those notes are there). Carbonation helps the flavors open on the tongue. Lively, refreshing.

FEEL: Smooth drinking -- like liquid summer. Carbonation is tingly on the tongue.

Note: poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a 16 oz. shaker glass.
