4.29/5 rDev +6.7%
Reviewed from notes. Growler from Charleston Beer Exchange just after the 4th of July. Amber with tan head. Dry earthy funk and mild leather. Some citrus peel. Flavor is very dry and leathery. Nice integration. Slightly bitter.

3.68/5 rDev -8.5%
Appearance: Pours a cloudy garnet-infused amber color; the inch of foam leaves some splashy lacing behind
Smell: Bready, with vague pear aromas, some barnyard funk; vinous oaky elements become dominant
Taste: The impact of the barrel overwhelm from the start adding a sherry-like character that, when combined with the bread, pear and yeasty phenols leads to a barnyard of funk; nuts and sherry return in the finish, which is very dry
Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation
Overall: A very unusual flavor profile; I'm not sure that the wine barrels really helped this beer but it is worth a try

This poured out looking like a reddish color, The head was white, it had a thin retention and no lacing. The smell of the beer was earthy and not very sour on the nose. I expected it to be much stronger. The taste of the beer was decent, mostly has the grainy malt base with a very subtle barrel aged flavor in there. The mouthfeel of the beer was smooth, very drinkable, dry in the finish. Overall this beer was decent, I wasn't really getting into this one too much. It was good but not great.

Served in a Sweetwater mini-snifter.
Wait, there's Brett but there ain't no Mices? Dammit... Anyway, this stuff pours a cloudy sunset amber topped by a finger of sandy off-cream foam. The nose comprises lemon zest, light clove, and a healthy amount of Brett-y funk. The taste brings in more of the same, along with some mild sourdough and even more funk. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a nice, Brett-y BPA. Good times. Straight up.

Got this as an extra in a trade with [I think] DoubleSunshine. Thanks!
Shared with a few folks at a recent tasting.
Medium amber color, with a foamy white head that left some lacing on the glass. In the nose, some bready malts and yeasty funk, slightly vinous. Taste of sweet bready malts, light fruity essence, grape and mild cherry, leather and earth, brett imparting a little funk. Body was about medium, carbonation was moderate. A good melding of flavors, yet nothing intense going on. Kind of walked the edge of a few different styles here, but overall it was an enjoyable brew.

Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter.
The beer pours a cloudy reddish amber color with a layer of off white head that fades away rather quickly. The nose is full of funky brett with a mild wine note. The taste is quite funky and full of brett, but this beer is hardly sour at all. I'm getting some wine and lots of oak. The finish is really dry. I really enjoyed the oaky notes and thought the wine was a nice touch.

Shared by myself during BRoss242’s send-off party before he moves! Will miss you man! Served from growler into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured a deep red-orange with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, funk, earth, and sour. The flavor was of sweet malt, cherry, funk, and earth. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. I was really looking forward to this one ever since I first heard about it going into barrels to age with the Brett. I have to say that it turned out quite well. The Brett definitely was the star of the show and made this known throughout the glass. Everyone who tried the growler at the tasting agreed as well. Definitely a well done brew that is worth trying for any fan of that pure Brett flavor.

Cloudy dark tan in color. Forms a smallish off-whitish head. Very light lacing. Aroma is full on Brett: pineapple and tropical fruit with a wheats, somewhat tart-sour quality. Taste is lightly sweet, grainy, and, for lack of better words, quite Bretty. Lighter bodied. Heavier carbonation. A very nice Brett-forward beer.

Pours a super hazy toffee color with a pretty thick off white head.
Smells of brett, vinous white wine character/grape.
Taste is big brett, some mildly sweet honey or flower character, white grape and other light fruit.
Lots of carbonation, nice full mouthfeel.
Really solid bretty sour, not super acidic, good balance of sweet backbone and brett funk.

Pours amber-gold with a thin white head that fades to a very slight ring. Big aromas of red wine and earthy Brettanomyces dominates, along with some orange peel, light grain, and floral hops. So nice, and the Brett has aged perfectly. Taste is similarly Brett-heavy, with more red wine, oak, vanilla, and earthy funk. Mouthfeel is crisp and dry, with a medium body and solid carbonation. Excellent beer from Westbrook, love seeing things like this make it out of the barrel room!
