4.21/5  rDev +22.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: a deep amber to mahogany color. an aggressive pour yields a two finger head that fades slowly and leaves a slight lacing. fairly hazy and opaque. Fairly good looking and i can attribute the darker color to aging in cypress more that the base beer

Smell: a slight woodeny earthy brett smell, almost a little tart. strong mineral like smell coming through

Taste: fairly clean taste up front, opens up more to lots of wood and earthy tones. very light brett character. light fruitiness. definite mineral quality ending

Mouthfeel: light and crisp, followed by some funkiness. sticky

Overall: I didn't quite expect this beer to be anything like this. the name and label points towards a beer dominated by wild yeast and barrel character. but what it turns out to be is a refreshing and crisp kolsch with influences by wild yeast and cypress. nice touch to a good base beer.

Bomber poured into tulip.

A: Pours a darker amber color with very little head that reduces quickly and leaves a thin right around the glass.
S: There's some funk in there. I didn't even notice this is a Kölsch until after I started drinking and reread the label. Surprisingly, I had more appreciation for both aroma and flavor once I came to this realization. It is an odd combination of a Kölsch with funkyness that works.
T: Just like aroma, there is some funk there. For the name, I expected more. The further I get into the glass, the more the base flavor of a Kölsch comes through. Very crisp, and oddly refreshing.
M: Fairly thin, and carbed slightly high. But it's practically a session, so I can't say I was expecting the opposite.
O: I found myself surpsised with this beer twice. At first I was surprised at the level of funk presence in both the aroma and taste. This was a disappointing surpsise. As I sipped through, I was equally surprised at how this beer grew on me. I would not say it overwhelms on any level. I will say that it is very drinkable, and one that I ended up enjoying quite a bit.
