Pours a mostly clear red-tinted darker orange with dense but thin white head; Rorschach lacing. Smell: citrus peel, moldy overripe peaches, floral, musty, with grape skin and red wine vinegar notes. Taste: moderately acidic with big flavors... herbal and woody, bitter orange; beneath some sweet and sour fruit balance... unripe peach, melon note, sugared dried mango. Some snappy grain character quickly overwhelmed by red wine grapes and pepper. Interesting composition, with all of the components dialed up and dialed in. Really nice.

Bottle from Tipples, corked and caged. Poured to my tulip hazy orange with lots of. Unless and a big creamy white to off white head. Huge Brett aroma, orange peels, lots of floral and peppery notes, barnyard funky and dry. Not a lot of wine on the nose. Flavor is sweet mango intermingled with rose hips, citrus, funk, and light peppery spice. Lightly tart from the Brett, full bodied with a vinous red wine heaviness, but strong carbonation. Wow. This might be the best Brett beer I've ever had. The big juiciness of the beer balances out the dry funky Brett outstandingly.
