Batch 2 served into a tulip

A-vibrant golden straw color with wisps of white head, no lacing.

S-bready malts and barnyard Brett notes predominate

T-the first taste I get a distinct buttery aftertaste that is none too pleasant, but as it warms there is less butter and more biscuit, lemony funk up front with a bit of green apple. Not very sour.

M-not that much carbonation and on the thin side

O-I had high hopes for this, but wonder if age would do well for this one. If you have this batch you may want to wait until summer to crack it.

12.7 oz bottle. Pours hazy golden orange with a small white head that goes to a thin film.

The aroma is straw malts, soft tropical fruit, earthy brett and some tart acidic notes.

The flavor is sweet tropical fruit quickly followed by a lot of tart, acidic sourness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Overall, this has aged nicely - nice blend of sweet tropical fruit, earthy brett and tart acidic sourness.

A - Golden with a light haze and a small white head

S - Tart lemon, light blue cheese funk, and tart vinegar that gives it a good balance of tart and funk 4.5

T - Green apple, lemon peel, white vinegar and light oak. Reminds me a bit of a sour apple juice. Light blue cheese funk near the backend that balances the tartness 4.25

M - Not much carbonation but has a tart bite from the vinegar and tartness. Finish has a light tingle near the end.

O - Tart and lightly funked sour that has a nice apple presence balanced with a slight blue cheese funk

on-tap @ falling rock

Heavy goblet pours - bright straw-orange body, lovely white lace. Lots of citrus, funky grassy goodness, lots of brett notes, vinous white wine, yellow peach, passion fruit. I had a few pours of this, really lovely beer from an impressive brewery.
