look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a clear yellow/pale oragne with a small white head that fades quickly.

Smells of white wine, almost pino with oak and alcohol.

Taste is white-wine grape up front that goes into a slightly malty, highly carbonated middle, before ending on muscat grape note with hints of pear and sourness.

Medium body with lower carbonation works well enough. Alcohol is too present as it stands.

While I do enjoy the flavors, I find this to be too much like a white wine and not enough like a beer. Some age could also help bring things together.

Thanks to MinorThreat for the bottle

Pours cloudy gold with a thin white head that fades immediately. Lots of bubbles.

Aroma is good musty brett along with heavy vinous notes and some oak.

Sour lemon/barnyard funk up front. Tannic qualities and finishes with a heap of oak and lots of white wine.

Medium mouthfeel and carbonation. Not as fizzy as the initial appearance would indicate.

Almost more like a wine than a beer. The musty brett is a bit too much for me, but still good overall.

Bottle courtesy of fortsambo. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a light golden color with a thin white head and a bit of lacing. The nose has some white grapes along with some chardonnay and a bit of oak. Mild earthiness. Flavor is a bit sour and tart with chardonnay dryness and some oak through the finish. Light tannins and a hint of alcohol. Light acidity. Interesting, but not quite integrated.
