anyone else pick up a ton of brett in the nose and taste of this? is it intentional or infected? either way, the way this brett dries up the beer, helps it carbonate up to high heaven, and plays with the hops in this is nothing short of a wonderful surprise for a single bottle i picked up for under two bucks just to try. its got a light copper color to it and plenty of body. the brett waters up my mouth and shocks me at first smell. nowhere does it mention that, but its here plain as day. the hops are awesome too, so vibrant and fresh and right up front of the whole thing. grain contributes just a little honey sweetness at first, but the yeast cleans that up, leaving the finish for the hops. citra is there, but so might be something like a nelson sauv. it has that tropicality and lush juiciness associated with the new zealand strains and its downright delicious. the saaz hops are readily apparent as well. with the possible exception of the death of a contract brewer, this is the best beer i have had from these guys, whether or not the brett was intentional, we may never know, but it works!
