A - Cloudy dull gold color. Large, fluffy, cloud like, white head that raises quickly. Nice retention leaving a nice layer of lace.
S - Quite a bit of Brett on the nose. Nice barnyard funk aroma. In the back is a nice mix of fruity hops. Passionfruit, mango, peach, grapefruit, and pineapple. Intriguing mix of aromas. Some pale malt.
T - Doesn't quite live up to the nose. Not as much Brett although there still is some funk. Fair amount of hops both citrus and tropical (especially pineapple). Touches of spice (pepper and coriander come out a bit). Touches of light/pale malt provide a nice base. Not much from the barrel comes out. Sweet and funk.
M - Light to medium body. Plenty of carbonation. Effervescent and crisp.
D - Interesting beer. Pretty drinkable with a nice funk but nothing too strong (could even use a bit more on the taste). Overall pretty drinkable.
Notes: Didn't quite live up to my expectation (but they were pretty high given Brett and Galaxy hops) and I prefer the Tripel, but this was a nice beer. Interesting play with the hops and kumquat. Could use a bit more Brett on the taste but all in all I can't complain.
