750mL bottle poured into a tulip. Thanks Matt for sharing! Batch 7/12 Bottle #957/1516

(A)- A brilliant ruby red grapefruit-like color to it. Some good white froth formed.

(S)- A fairly dry, but acidic oak with subtle funky strawberry/blueberry fruits.

(T)- A nice dry tartness that flows into a really nice, almost creamy vanilla oakiness. Very dry finish with subtle blueberry fruit.

(M)- A really nice crisp carbonation level. So smooth and creamy with that little bit of vanilla with the oak and fruit combo. Not a ton of Brett, but this sure is velvet-like.

(O)- A really intriguing and engaging beer. Would be extremely curious what some time would do to this if the Brett would integrate more into the main profile of the beer or not. Whatever the case, the way this beer is now is at a really interesting stage where the oak profile is almost creamy with the vanilla and blueberry fruits is really enjoyable.

Pour is orange gold, transparent, with a tight off white head. The nose is bright with strong Brett and acetic presence. Blueberry blended in pretty nicely with a leathery Brett and soft dusty presence. Taste is solid, blueberry is the focus but not sweet at all with a lighter Brett presence. Dusty and faint leather with a hint of bandaid. Body is light and airy with a solid softer carbonation and a fairly dry finish.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A -Red raspberry with light brown aspects and a white head. Clean body.

S - Sweet blueberry, lactic acid, light lemon

T - Tart blueberry with a light brown ale / bready malt presence that I didn't expect to find. The blueberry is subtle but it adds a definitely nice sweetness.

MF - Medium body with light softness to it. Light carbonation with a dry finish

O - Soft sour/ Saison with muted and balanced flavors including the light blueberry sweetness. Definitely have a lot of subtleness
