A: The beer is very hazy pale yellow in color. It poured with a short white head that quickly died down, leaving delicate lacing covering the surface and a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of white wine are present in the nose along with notes of funk.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, but the sourness and funkiness from the brett are a little stronger and balance against the wine barrel flavors.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little tart and dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink but has lots of complexities in the smell and taste that make this a beer you want to sip and savor.

i wish this would go into production and distro sooner than it is scheduled to, its so darn tasty. a blonde bretty brew aged in wine barrels, chardonnay from what my palate tells me, but i could be wrong. pale and hazy yellow hue to this, with chunks of yeast cake floating around by mid pour. lots in the bottom of the bottle. the nose is awesome, dry as they come, moderately acidic more from the wine than any bacterial activity, and smelling like new oak and wheat malt, its really nice. the flavor is all of the above, with the brett adding quite a bit of funk, and the wine flavors really taking over the finish of a beer that draws elements from both rayon vert and le freak, i think its highly successful, and sessionable as can be at a nice low abv. a flavorful blonde beer, thats where its at for warm weather. carbonation is rampant, refreshment is high, and the finish is dry and clean for how complex it is. one of the best green flash beers ive had, and i would love to have a fridge full of it. ive heard its a year or two away from colorado release, but i am already stoked for the day it arrives. awesome beer.

On tap for Beachwood Sour Fest at Beachwood BBQ & Brewing in Long Beach, CA.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is slightly sour and tart with malt, grain, fruit, and Brett aromas. Taste is much the same with fruit and Brett flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of Brett bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty but has a much better Brett presence in the aroma.
