Poured on tap vintage 2012, at Odell's brewpub in Fort Collins. 3-4 oz. sample. From notes.
A classic golden amber, almost hinting at bronze, with barely a white head presented. Collar always manages to stay. Clear with lively carbonation but not excessive.
Bouquet is a giant whiff of buttery oaky character. Huge buttered oak (American oak?) much like a classic booming Chardonnay with hints of honey to go with it and not a giant oak bomb. Malt presence is toned down, not particularly sour or either barnyard character either. A chard's lovers dream beer so far, extremely impressed.
Palate matches the sense of buttery richness. Malt depth carries hints of butter and lots of deep oak, and then even finishes with just a kiss of honey on the finish. An absolutely luscious and full and mellow palate, with large depth, almost getting into fatty bacon territory. Manages to even pull off just a hint of crisp carbonation ever so slightly.
A real impressive piece of work, and one unique tasting brew.

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.
