look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2.5
Corked and caged in a 750 mL heavy bottle. $14.99 The bottle is printed with a bunch of scribbles suggesting someone with really bad handwriting artfully blended this. The cork pops easily and loudly.
A: Pours with excessive foaming. Four fingers of khaki head form and swell up over the lip of the goblet before I can get a decent amount of beer out of the bottle. The head persists, with a fine layer of thick film atop layers of rocky, irregular bubbles. The beer is crystal-clear amber. After topping up, the color is cloudy apricot.
S: The Brett leads the lacto, with spicy phenols up front, and tangy vinegar behind. A slight citrus touches off a leathery, dry, oak-infused malt. A faint grassy, earthy hop lingers behind the stronger spices.
T: Whoa. It's hot and alcoholic, like you'd expect from a beer in the 'above 10% ABV' category. It's hoppy, but it's really hot and fusel-flavored. It's boozy and tangy and hard to drink.
M: Hot. It's very astringent and prickly on the front-top of the tongue and sticky in the back and beside the tongue. Mouth-wateringly vinegary.
Overall, not really a favorite oaked beer. It's going to be hard to finish this. May update later.

Pour is dark hazed amber with a tight off white head. The nose is a balance of wood, Brett, and fruit. Wood is most forthcoming with apple skin, light mushroom and tannin. Taste is much less balanced, stronger malt undertones, brighter apple skin notes, musky mushroomy brett, fairly powerful tannic flavor. Very strong carbonation, light body, semi dry finish with a tinge of booze but not too much for the alcohol content.
