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.

Specially released 1-year aged (pink wax), has approximately 1.5 years on it
The beer pours a syrupy looking golden yellow with very little white head that fades quickly without lacing. The nose is definitely a healthy amount of funk - a bit of bread, pear, honey, and white grape. The taste carries a modest funkiness, greatly attenuated sweetness compared to a fresh bottle, light fruitiness, and little bitterness. It's a light-medium bodied, drinkable, brett-forward, complex, fruity, semi-sweet beer with little residual aftertaste, aside from the funk. I definitely enjoy this beer more than I did the first time I tried it ("fresh"), it has dried out a bit more and retained a big fruity sweetness with age. I'd highly advocate for cellaring your fresh bottles

Pours a slightly hazy yellow with small amount of head. Nose starts with candied lemon and moderate farmy funk. Light oak and chardonnay are present but serve as the supporting cast rather than dominating the nose. Taste has notes of citric acid which brings some tartness to the palate. Lemon, wheat, and oak come through the strongest with some sweetness to bring things into balance. Nice clean finish, light on the funk overall. Mouthfeel is relatively light with medium carbonation. Overall, this is a solid brew. This is my first from 2nd shift, certainly won't be my last.
