I haven't gotten down to any sediment yet, in the first half of the pour. Looks regally clear and very pale golden straw. Mammoth head lacked tightness and wanted to fall before I was ready to let it go from my sights.

Very musty German grain with light chalky wheat and a whisper of tartness. Features that moldy lemon rind note that I enjoy to sniff. Lactic, but not sharp. Almost a mushroom-like savory quality (the Brett-ish Invasion??).

Almost puckery with a jaw tense-up of lactic acidity that tastes like lemon rind and sour pear. Wintery German wheat has a great translucency and bony twang. Hints of honeydew rind, mushroom funk, and goat cheese (yup, Brett's in the house). Yeast never hits too big. It's all about that lactic bacteria and unsuspecting Brett.

Refreshing, with a pucker. Tart, but never unsettling. Jives with carbonation. Awesome.

A truly great ale that anyone would be privileged to enjoy.
