Poured from bottle into teku glass

A- Cloudy yellow/orange with white head and light glass lacing

S - Brett funk... Zesty aroma that's definitely sour. Hints of apple, oak, and other fruits

T - Sour is the first thing that comes to mind. Not over powering by any means. I'd describe it as more sour than funky. I pick up a lot of apple / lemon flavors. The funk does linger. Really well balanced

M - Light overall with medium carbonation. It finishes up with a dry / slightly funky finish

O- An almost near perfect beer. Great appearance and smell. Unique flavors. I really liked the use of Brett in this beer. I'd like to acquire some more of this!

375ml, 2013/Batch 2
Deschutes TEKU

A: Pours a completely hazed right yellow orange color. Initially a tight bubbled fluffy bright head. Sticky lacing. High carbonation.

S: Brett funk. Apricot. Some other tropical notes. Oak dryness. Vinous character.

T: It's funky, not sour. Brett. Apricot. Peach. Tannic dryness. Oak. Finish is dry and crisp. Not Gueuze by any means, like the label quote mentions. Wonder if sour would come up with time.

M: Lighter medium. Not as highly carbonated.

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.
