Poured from bottle into a goblet. Vintage 2014 bottle indicates best by 2018. Big foamy head fades slowly. Golden color, fruity, little sourness. The brett is in the background, not overpowering. Pretty good overall. I'd cellar one to see if the brett becomes more prevalent.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a tulip glass.
Aroma- Has a great fruit aroma with maybe some grain.
Appearance- This is a very pale yellow brew with a small white head.
Taste- Has a great citrus flavor
Palate- A medium bodied, mildly, carbonated brew with a nice dry finish.
Overall- I really love this beer, I am looking forward to having it again.

A: The beer is relatively clear light amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger and a half high white head that died down, consistently leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the slides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of brett funk are present in the nose along with strong notes of fruity esters and candi sugars.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors of grapes and candi sugars along with some bits of funk.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a tripel that would appease people that aren't fond of brett because there are only subtle amounts of funk in the smell and taste of this beer. It is rather easy to drink because the alcohol is fairly well hidden from the taste.
