not super impressed with this one, although i think its drinking a bit young, especially in terms of the under developed brett character, and much like some other perennial beers, this will likey improve radically with a little age. a spelt based brett saison type, murky and muted dull dried leaf color, with an extremely short lived inch of off white head. the beer settles to look almost flat, and has a lot of cloudiness. it smells and tastes about the same, more saison than brett to this thing, and the spelt gives it just a bit more body and prominent grain flavor, but its in low enough proportion to not yet be spicy in the finish or intensely bitter and earthy. its just all balanced out pretty well. my onl real critique is lack of brett character, which i hope will develop in time. there is some saison yeast type esters going on, and a clean finish for such a grain heavy brew. it could really use more carbonation, which may come along with the brett maturity, it usually does. good beer, especially for 10 bucks, probably worth picking up another and laying it down awhile.
