Appearance -Very nice murky golden orange, essentially zero head.

Smell - Funky fermenting fruit, acid, minimal booze

Taste - very tasty hint of plums unfortunately a bit overshadowed by the brett. I like brett but the strength of this beer I think is in the fruit so it would have been nice if this came out a bit more more. A bit more boozy flavor than many sours at 6.2%.

Mouthfeel - Appropriate level of carbonation, thinner mouthfeel typical of sours.

Overall - I love sours so I always love to find a new and unique one. Will buy again.

2012 edition.

It pours a rusty red murky colour with a 2 finger head of foam.

I get semi sweet plums with a rather massive nose of Brett. Some cider like qualities here to with a dose of vanilla.

The taste is more dominated by Brett than perhaps I like but the fruitiness is quite tasty and the finish is pretty darned dry. Malt wise, I get earthy notes, pretty much all I can pull out.

Medium body and carbonation. Nice mouth feel.

The Brett wears on my palate after a few sips but I'd hardly say this isn't a very good beer, because it is.
