look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

On tap at O'Rourkes in South Bend, served in a Bell's snifter.

Pour: hazy, deep orange, with two fingers of deep creamy head. Some lacing, and the head hangs around as a rim.

Smell: big tropical fruits up front... Pineapple, mango, grapefruit, and even a touch of red berries. Fruits carry most of the nose, with just a touch of earthiness from the brett, and a light spiciness from the rye on the finish.

Taste: again, big tropical pineapple, mango, a touch of citrus, and some floral notes sneak in. Lots of earthy brett in the middle, and some breadyness. Rye shine on the back end, with a touch of spice, that cuts through all the other flavors and lingers.

Mouthfeel: rather heavy, but in a good way. Definitely took my time with the glass. Earthyness and rye really builds as it opens up. Finishes with an interesting mix of dryness and a lingering rye taste.

Overall: definitely a delicious and underrrated beer. A great showcase of what brett can do, and the rye adds a nice complexity.

Serving type: on-tap
