look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

A: Poured a light amberish color with big carbonation yileding a bit white fomay cap.

S: Dried fruits in the way of cherries and some apples. Plenty of hay and barnyard funk going on with some spice. However, I do pickup some plastic on this...

T: A nice stinging booze bite upfront with some yeast, spice, fruits and funk. Then some plastic appears, not good. The finish is dry, lingering hay and funk with more plastic in the background

M: Light-medium bodied, well carbonated, perhaps a tad bit to high. Effervescent.

O: I may have scored a tainted bottle.

Served in a cervoise. Thanks, Aaron! Fairly-strong levels of Brett. Barnyard and some phenolics with backing cherry. Very dry.

750ml : tulip snifter

Pours a lightly hazy golden-orange with a thick, foamy, craggy off white head.

Light Brett tartness blends nicely into faintly sweet, fruity and floral hops.

Floral notes transition into lightly tart Brett notes. Decent malty backing.

Medium body, with active, foamy carbonation.

An enjoyable Belgian-inspired take on a pale ale. The brett added a nice tartness without becoming downright sour.

Murky lighter shade of amber in the tall glass. Big foam up on first couple of pours, but it is not so bad after blowing off the head. This one should probably be stored in the refrigerator for a while to get the yeast to settle down.

Flavors are tart, tangy, and cidery. Very fruity and weird with plenty of the "meaty" flavor that goes along with the Brett yeastiness. Apricot nectar with a little vinegar. But complex and full of crazy flavors. It's just a lot of damned yeast. I am liking the plain Brett brews, but not so sure about this multi-yeast concoction.

From the 750 bottle purchased at Bottleworks in the Wallingford neighborhood of Seattle.
