Shared with JLindros and Threelions. Bottle 686/1526.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear dark golden hue with a thin head that fades to leave light wisps.

S - Aromas of loads of brett, lavender, great pomegranate notes, great sour notes. Really really great notes.

T - Taste is loads of brett, lavender, great pomegranate notes, very nice floral notes, great brett and floral. The pomegranate pops big time, light acetone notes that I feel world come out more with age which wouldn't be good necessarily.Really balanced.

M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, good brett tastes.

O - Overall this beer was delicious, great brett note with awesome floral berry notes. Delicious with the right amount of age.

Thanks to Bankhead for sharing this one at mrbubbler's tasting.

Batch 8/12.

Pours a murky dark orange with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, fruit, earth, floral, and funk aromas. Taste is much the same with sour fruit, funk, and acidic flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice floral presence that comes through better in the aroma.

Serving type: bottle.
