750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Batch 8/12, bottle 69/1526.

Appearance - Very hazy and murky. Pale yellow orange. Small white head with a thin collar.

Smell - Bright citrus. Lemony and bretty. Grapefruity. Very nice.

Taste - Grapefruit sourness. Some berry tartness. Lavender smooths it out very subtly in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Good sourness. Not a crisp beer, but not heavy.

Overall - Very nice sour. Amazing complexity from 100% brett.

Served in a tulip at Decofest, thanks to Mark for sharing!
Quick review from written notes.

Saturated orange color, compact layer of white foam on the surface, a flurry of spotty lace appears as the glass is swirled.

Fruity aroma, must be the pomegranate, though it seems more like pink grapefruit or guava.

Tart grapefruit taste, mild botanicals in the middle, complex and unique. Juicy feel, crisp with a moderate acidity before finishing dry in the end. Pulpy fruit impression, authentic and very nice.
