Notes/Commercial Description:
Don't know what to call it besides a Brett Beer. This one gets aged for 3 months in oak barrels with Brettanomyces Lambicus, a cool yeast that gives this beer a wonderfully pretty aroma and flavor that everyone better like or else I'll look you up and teach you a lesson.

3.9/5  rDev +0.3%

Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.
Bottled: 9/2013

Pours a slightly hazy pale straw golden yellow color with a thin but dense clean white head. The head recedes pretty quickly and there is a nice white ring that stays around the glass till the end.

Aroma is yummy. Notes of white grape skin. Vinous sweetness with some slight tart notes. Some nice woody funk is very prevalent and waters the palette. Mild lemony tartness in the nose can be perceived as well. Pretty funky and dry with notes of hay and some barnyard notes.

Flavor starts off with dry vinous white grape notes. Slight fruit sweetness from the grapes followed up quick by more vinous dryness and mild tartness. Notes of Bretty funk with some grainy notes and some hay as well as some musty grape notes. The brew is dry throughout he middle and finishes dry with some mild fruit sugary sweetness that pops up along with the grape tartness. The woody notes are pretty great and as expected the brew finishes dry and mildly tart.

Overall. I curse myself for not giving this brew a chance sooner. It is well crafted. The Brett funk is wonderful for such a fresh bottle. Notes of grain, white wine and wood. Nice job.

Bottled on 01/20014. 750mL bottle with cap. Bright, pale yellow with a slight haze, thin white lace. Lemon zest aroma, yeast, slight funk, white pepper, and cidery edge. Thin, crackery, semi-tart, lemony, stone fruits, nectarine, peach skin, phenolic/medicinal, oaky, pepper, apples, vinous, dry, cidery and earthy finish.

Acidic, but not overwhelming. Barrel-aging really helped mellow and meld things. Lots of stone fruit character. Quite enjoyable.
