Bottle from Fonduevoodoo in CanBIF Spring 2014.

A - Gusher to start. In the glass it's a nice cloudy burnt orange colour. Two fingers of thick white head on top with strong carbonation. Great lace wall and a half finger of retention.

S - Peach, funk, vinegar, hay. Quite a lovely and complex aroma.

T - Fruity, yeasty and tart, but the tartness is restrained, yet not in a bad way. Tart, hay, dusty, fruity, less acidic than the aroma. This is pretty nice stuff because it walks the line between funky, yeasty, and fruity. The Brett profile is subtle, but present and very complimentary to the profile of the Belgian Pale.

M - Strong carbonation, medium creamy body and a dry/Bretty finish.

O/D - This was much better than I was expecting. Pleasantly tart, yet not overpoweringly so. This does a good job of playing all angles and not doing any of them too aggressively to make a nice, drinkable Belgian-style pale. Well done.

Got at good beer in alphabet city- pours a hazy orange color with lots of frothy white head, modest retention and little lacing. Looks beautiful and really is quite active.

Smells a lot like Brett- awesome!

Tastes very nice- graininess up front followed immediately by the Brett funk which then turns into a slight tartness with a little green apple flavor. Lovely.

Mouthfeel is prickly and light bodied. I really like this beer- I'm going back to get another one tomorrow to age for a while to bring out the funk. If you like Brett seek this one out!
