4.33/5  rDev +8.5%

A : nice clear golden like a deeper chardonnay color or Muscat juice. nice noticable carbonation

S: a nice sweet white /green fruit backround with a shot of funky brett letting you know its in there.

T:This one is way more beer like compared to the sauvage. tastes is like a fruit brett saison with the barnyard depth with must and nice residual sweetness left from the fruit

M: a little thick for me maybe a little low on carbonation to help everything shine

O: Another really nice blend of the beer and wine world. very food friendly but easily drinkable by yourself.

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.

A - Orange colored beer with a white head that left some minor lace on the glass.

S - Does smell a bit like wine. There's some tannic quality, grapes, apples, and a bit of wood from the barrel.

T - Oaky, with a little bit of funk. It's a bit of a heartier sour than most, with the wine and barrel influence taking away some of the lighter tartness and sourness in a wild.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a dry finish.

O - Not bad, but nothing I would trade for again. Not sure if it had too much time in the barrel, or the base wasn't strong enough to get overwhelmed.
