2013, batch 3, snifter.

A: Pours a slightly hazy pale amber with a nice thick and fluffy bright white head that slowly collapsed into a faint collar.
S: Huge and dominating notes of earthy and musty brett, with just the faintest scent of cheesy funk. The oak is right there alongside the yeast and is easily noticeable. Mild notes of citrus comes through underneath, and maybe a hint of tart acid.
T: More citrus than the nose let on, with flavors of lemon juice, and what reminds me of bitter kumquat rind. Earthy, spicy and musty brett flavors follow next with woody and damp oak coming through in the finish. The aftertaste is full of buttery oak and lingering sour notes of brett and bitter citrus rind.
M: Medium-full body with a clean mouthfeel that has a good chew to it. The carbonation is fluffy and fairly soft, and the tartness is very mild with just a touch of acidity.
O: Tastes as advertised . Not my favorite but definitely a clean and flavorful brett witbier. Very earthy.
