3.9/5 rDev +4.8%
Lively, expressive, crisp, and a touch of funk. Ripe exotic fruit ... dragon fruit. Cracker maltiness, nutty yeast. Some musty funk within. Hint of warmth from the alcohol. Great use of brett, like that there is still a hint of sweetness here though I wonder where this brew would be after another 6-12 months of cellaring. Glad I had it now though.

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.
