Thanks Sonny. Tampa 2015 review dump; full notes taken during consumption.

A- Beyond murky apricot golden pour to a snifter from the 750ml. Milky looking with some huge spongy chunks. Foamy bottle bomb with a huge white head with good retention.

S- Brett is the name and the game here. Tropical Brett is the dominant aroma with musty dry straw barnyard just a bit. Apricot and sour peach comes to mind. Spicy and fruity.

T- Stone fruit flesh and pith comes through with a somewhat tropical feel from the Brett. More of the fruit Brett with less of the funk. A bit of straw, grapes and cherry. Floral and a peppery spicy coriander Saison yeast profile.

MF- Light overall body suits the tropical Brett with a slightly dry fell but more sweets than most Brett brews. Very high effervescent carbonation and a foam bomb at times. Lots of work out of the Brett.

A great use of Brett in this beer. Somewhere between a fruit and funk bomb from the wild yeast but the flavor and body are spot on.

On tap at Clinton Hall in NYC: Pours very hazy gold color with a huge white fluffy 2 finger white head that faded very slowly, leaving very good lacing and foamy rings.

Smells of wet grass, barnyard funk, lemon, grains, caramel, floral hops, pepper, coriander, dry yeast, cardboard, white wine and the general outdoor earthy notes associated with this style. Very light and champagne-like nose that was soft and subtle yet with very nice complexities.

Tastes of sweet fruit like green apple, pear and lemon, followed by very dry yeast, wet grass, barnyard funk, toasted grains, caramel, floral hops, pepper, coriander, tea leaf almost like potpourri, honey, cardboard, white wine and toasted oaky notes. Herbal notes mix with the barnyard farm animal hair essence that jumps in with the mild carbonation from time to time. As much as I like the dryness and authenticity of the brew, I wish it had just a tad bit more fruity sweetness to add some depth.

The dryness is incredible and the brett leaves a chalky feeling that's almost tart yet has champagne similarities that keeps it light, flavorful and going down way too easy for this ABV. The aftertaste is grainy, sweet and gives tart white grape flavors that resemble the bitter white wine grape right before fermentation. Very tasty beer, really enjoyable but a little less flavorful than I expected.
