3.29/5 rDev -11.6%
The beer pours a golden amber. Very faint haziness. The white head settles to a thin wispy cap. No lacing.
Beer smells surprisingly sweet given the use of Brett. Smells of candied sugar, apple, honey and pineapple. Maybe even some vanilla.
The taste is similar with the candied sugar and yeast imparting a fruity sweet flavor. Notes of honey, pear and apple. Finishes a little too sweet for my taste. I'm curious if some time would help to dry out the beer, which would improve it in my eyes. Mouthfeel is lively and medium light bodied. Very mild bitterness. Low Brett character.
I was hoping for a greater Brett influence and a drier beer. Not bad. Comes off as a fruity, semi sweet tripel.

4/5 rDev +7.5%
750mL bottle poured into a snifter.
(A)- Pours a caramel colored bronze. Some good white froth; minimal lacing.
(S)- A bit dry, but lightly spiced. Very subtle Brett meets a fairly citrus forward aroma of orange and lemon.
(T)- An interesting toasted nutty character meets a slight funk and slight sweetness with a yeasty biscuit and orange citrus finish.
(M)- A good carbonation level meets a deeper malt bill despite its lighter characters and flavors. Some good funk to it as well.
(O)- I like the Brett addition this has. Perhaps a bit richer with the malt bill than I expected, but I like being surprised.
