Thin bone white head, mostly loose and bubbles off swiftly, very bright and seems to reflect light nicely, the lacing is the sort which initially forms a very thin yet broad sheet but has little stick and as a whole it just glides down the glass sides. Cloudy yet bright canary yellow colored liquid, very difficult to see any bubbles inside the glass, warm luminescence to it. The nose most prominently hits you with tart white grapefruit notes, lots of salty accents and burnt dark bread crusts, more finished bread than yeasts, quite grassy, there’s something like an herb infused olive oil thing going on too, maybe pineapple or nectarine but you would be hard pressed to call the scents fruity. Medium-bodied, the carbonation swells immediately through the attack which gives it a creamier mouth feel, needed for when that lemon and white grapefruit citrus slash on through. Pepper and salt, green grass, clove and coriander, all contribute to a bright, tangy experience. Here the peach, apricot, nectarine and persimmon fruit is sweeter and more longlasting. There is a certain vinous quality, not sure I’d call it out and out bretty, likewise the yeasts are tame and not particularly softening. Fresh finish, given the elements it throws at you remains very good on the drinkability scale.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Hazy, pale yellow color with over two fingers of white foam head. Light lacing remains on the glass.

S: Crisp--even sparse--brett-affected yeast metabolites that exhibit remarkable focus and clarity without being overpowering.

T: Begins dry, with soft refined malt and some bright pithy fruit. Acidity is strong into the middle where the beer becomes sweeter, more mineral, and tinted with a breezy quality of goat pasture. The latter lingers during the finish, faint but complex.

M: Thin to medium viscosity, refreshingly acidic--especially late, with brisk carbonation.

D/O: An excellent brett beer, this Belgian-style strong pale ale struggles to live up to the IPA label. Instead, it delivers an austere dose of wild yeast funk with little associated tartness.
