4.18/5 rDev -3.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.
Appearance - Murky and hazy pale orange body. Big off-white head. Good retention.
Smell - Brett all over. Acidic notes and a lot of Belgian yeast. Pine hop profile isn't my favorite, but the Brett keeps it interesting.
Taste - Hops at first. Just a touch of sweetness before the Brett takes over. Surprisingly Bretty for how fresh the bottle is. A little tang in the back and quite a bit of bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Dry and bitter. A little harsh as a result. The Brett accentuates the bitterness in the finish.
Overall - Excellent beer. Bretted to hell, but well done. The hops manage to come through despite being a Brett bomb.
