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.

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.

3.78/5  rDev -2.8%

Appearance is a clear fizzy yellow with a one finger white bubbly head.
Aroma is dry, lemon, light banana, yeast, slight damp bAsement.
Taste is citrus, mineral funk, dry crackery feel.
Mouthfeel is dry, thin, highly carbonated.
Overall it's a nice summer beer but its missing something.
Maybe a little too dry and one note b I'm glad I got to try it.
Not as much Brett as advertised.

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.
