750ml bottle into Duvel tulip. Recent bottling.
Appearance: Free pour yields a 1/3 inch foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Pours a translucent goldish yellow and leaves small, sparse lines and spots of lacing.
Smell: Acetic and funky, with some lactic sourness underneath. Lactic note disappears and the dominant acetic aroma pulls back with time. Bright, lemony note comes out. Nice.
Taste: First sip: very oaky, with a thick lactic sourness accentuated by the creamy, fullish bodied feel. Tart and dry finish. Somewhat vinous character throughout.
The flavors expand similar to the aroma, but better. The tartness takes on a lemony / grapefruit pith character, the lactic sourness forms pretty much the base of the flavor, and a lot of creamy oak flavors and fruity highlights happen over the course of each sip. Definite chardonnay resemblance.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, but the creaminess gives a full-bodied impression. Awesome tart and dry finish sort of cleans up each sip. Juicy enough. Low side of moderate carbonation (ample).
Overall: Great beer for a hot day. Not one note, but much simpler than some better wild ales. Still delicious, and works really well as a whole (even good to great wild ales can feel like 80% stuff that works and 20% stuff I could do without, if not skewed even further toward the latter). Might pick up a few more of these for the Summer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Location: Decicco's Harrison
Glassware: Red Wine Glass
Appearance: Hazy. Blonde Wheat in color. Poured gingerly with a light carbonation which quickly evaporated.
Aromatics: Sour and funky. The fruit is green apples and grapefruit. A bit of must from the oak.
Flavor: It's very tart from the Brett. It really has a wine like flavor. Grape peels and lemon. The beer literally makes my mouth water when sipping on it.
Finish: The tart stays on the sides of my younger and a feel a load of carbonation even though I didn't see much.
