Poured from a bomber into a MoB teku glass and shared with friends.
Thanks to tbadiuk for the bottle!

Pours hazy and a light golden color with a 1-2 fingers of white fluffy head, falling to a thin color. The nose is soft and complex with lots of floral notes, lemon citrus and hints for farmy Brett. On the palate, this beer really opened up as it warmed; it featured again lots of floral and spice notes, lemon peel, white pepper, some nice Belgian yeast flavors and more and more Brett as it warmed. The body was smooth with a nice carbonation keeping it light and refreshing. A really nice version of the style, complex and enticing.
