big thanks to blake! enjoyed on 8/8.

a - nice hazy yellow orange with a big foamy head. good streaky lacing that slides down the glass but easily rebuilds.

s - smells great...just GREAT. sweet tarts. some funk, but perfect tart and sweetness.

t - just awesome! smarties. some brett like funk. some white wine oakiness.

m - prickly and awesome.

o - overall a really big surprise. i had never heard of this and was blown away. super tasty. worth seeking out.

The beer comes in a golden hay color with some haze with large foamy white head.

The aroma has tons of lemon peel, vinegar sourness, huge Brett notes, and some oak. Wonderful tartness in the aroma.

The flavor has TONS of complexity. There's lemon peel acidic sourness, but mostly vinegar tartness. Then there's some wheat and saison notes along with yeasty notes. The finish then hits you with oak and lots of woodiness, without being too earthy and bitter. There's lots of white wine vinous notes because of this oak character.

This beer absolutely just blew me away. There's the combination of fruit, Brett funk, the tartness, the saison in there, along with that really intriguing oak and wine combination. All this together makes this an extremely complex and exciting beer.
