Bottle courtesy of Patrick, thanks again!
Pours a hazy and bright orange color with a huge white head.
Aromas are of white wine, light vinegar, cut grass, and lemon zest.
Taste is lighter than the nose suggests, but still quite pleasant. Light sweetness, clean, with some cream, nuttiness, and a light sour and tart finish.
Mouthfeel is crisp, dry, with nice body,
Overall an enjoyable and unique beer. Well worth trying.

Thanks to Ryan for sharing this one. Served in a Half Acre taster glass.
A - Generous white foam settles to a thick cap, leaving behind loads of lacing. Hazed orange-yellow body. Nice-looking brew.
S - Lots of brett presence, imparting notes of earth, funk, and mild sulfur. Not overly oaky, but somewhat vinous. Fairly neutral backdrop of bread and Belgian yeast. Don't get much of the rye or candi sugar.
T - The taste has more in common with the base. Similar to Private Rye, but with notes of white wine and tropical fruit funk. The sulfur I got in the aroma is thankfully gone, but there's still a mildly earthy character that lingers.
M - Smooth, medium body. Pleasant carbonation, chewy texture, pretty dry in the finish, with no perceptible alcohol.
D - I liked this quite a bit. The base beer lends itself to the barrel-aging and brett and enhanced the complexity without being overly heavy-handed. I hope they make this again, although I'm curious about what makes this a 'lager'.

Served in a Bruery snifter.
Big thanks to cbeer88 for this bottle!
Reviewed blind as part of Blind BIF 7. This stuff pours a hazy orange topped by two fingers of cream-white foam. The nose comprises mild orange zest, sweet flowers, a vague notion of wheat, and a touch of perfume-y white wine grapes. The taste holds notes of blood orange/tangelo zest, mango, light lemon peel, light coriander, light wheat, and a good portion of Brett funk (though I couldn't rightly identify this at first...I blame prior drinking and tiredness...). The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a sorta/kinda dry finish. Overall, an interesting beer, to say the least. I believe I summed it up best for me by saying that though I would not purposefully buy this one myself if given the opportunity, but I wouldn't turn one down if given to me in some manner. Suffice it to say: I generally enjoyed it, but I didn't revel in it by any means.
