3.44/5 rDev -9.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: Reddish-brown, slightly hazy. Extremely clingy lacing. A beautiful beer.
Smell: Sour brett smell mixed with some sweet malt undertones.
Taste: Only a slight sour funk, hoppy backbone, malt intermingles throughout.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body with medium carbonation.
Overall: Just not my cup of tea. Good for people that are just starting out with Brett.
Serving type: on-tap

Filled a small growler of this from the brewpub. Had to drink this one simply because it uses Crooked Stave yeast. Poured into snifter for review.
A: appears perfectly clear amber with low carbonation. Not much head even after a vigorous pour.
S: I get black peppercorn and some light barnyard funk. Some light dark cherry notes.
T: lemon zest with very earthy notes. Bitterness is nice and solid. Not a lot of apparent Brett in taste. Maybe some musty, wooden door notes. Light dark fruits. Has lingering citric sourness to it - perhaps as if one had bitten into a lemon rind.
M: amply bitter. Feels medium full.
O: solod beer. No "wow" factor. Would likely get more funky with age but I'll drink this well before knowing.
Serving type: growler
