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.
