4.45/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden straw color with 3/4" of eggshell white head. Head retention is just okay, basically settling down to a ring around the edges of the glass. Lacing is just okay as well.

Smell: Tart lemons and pungent bretty funk up front, all highlighted by juicy citrus hop scents. Excellent.

Taste: A hint of grainy malts up front, followed by lemony tartness, horseblanket, and floral notes. Back end is punctuated by citrus and mango hop notes. The dry hopping really shines in this beer.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Light bodied with fairly low carbonation. Immensely drinkable. Overall, a great dry hopped sour. Really enjoyed just about every facet of it. Definitely recommended.

look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Hazy bright orange. Nice white head that doesn't last.

Smell - Smells herbal, citrusy, lemony. Brett. Interesting for sure. Almost smells dry-hopped.

Taste - Lemony and herbal tang. Very bretty. Bright tanginess. Orange citrus flavor. Really delicious.

Mouthfeel - Light and crisp. Well carbonated.

Overall - I could drink a ton of this. Truly excellent.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

375 mL bottle poured into a HF wine glass. Courtesy of Denverbeerdrinker. Served at 50F

A: Coudu straw gold body with a thin 1" head. Tiny bubbles and the head dies quickly. Mild lacing on the glass. Gentle swirling regenerates about 50% of the head.

S: Pale ale all the way. Mild dry hopping and a touvch of earthy funk and lactic sour.Very nice alteration on the style.

T: Sweet, tart, hoppy...what is this? Lemonade, bitter citrus, sweet roasted malt. Elements of lemony funk, barnyard and a touch of wood. Complex, but well balanced. Brett must be lambicus and bruxellensis focused.

M: Light and well carbonated. Clen finish with mild sweetness. It lingers ever so slightly, but the tartness clenses the palate.

O: Amazing example of twisting a classic style. Love this bee. Chad...more please?
