A nice beer and quite complex. Love the brett, love the wind barell complexity, and like the spicing. The nose and taste are both complex and deep. My only qualm is with the finish, which has a lingering bitterness that cuts against the integrated harmony of the rest of the beer. Not a huge deal, but enough to keep me from elevating this beer into the heights of the pantheon.
