Wow, this is really spoiled. Like another three months and you'll have a great Brett beer, but it's in a messy in between stage and there's some coconut and vanilla in the background.

Poured into a Funky Buddha Brewery snifter. No freshness date.

A- Pours a medium amber color with a 1/2 inch white head that retains a bit before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. Resilient lacing leaves a solid ring behind.

S- Huge whiff of fresh coconut skin. Sweet and bright. Awesome.

T- Straight coconut flavor brings to mind a pina colada. It's sweet, but not overly so and there's just enough beer flavor to keep the intensity of the coconut in check. It's like I'm eating flakes of coconut. Once again, awesome. Hops are nearly nonexistent.

M- Standard pale ale feel with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- You'd better love coconut if you intend on drinking this beer. I, for one, love coconut and find this to be an excellent beer especially during the summer when the flavors are more appropriate. But, truth be told, I could drink this stuff year-round. So glad they started distributing this to NC.
