4.21/5 rDev +2.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Pours a murky whitish-yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, citrus and tropical fruit, earth, yeast, and Brett aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour citrus, tropical, and Brett flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of Brett bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some great Brett forward aromas and flavors that make this one tasty and easy to drink.

4.46/5 rDev +8.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: straw yellow color. Head of roughly two fingers on the pour which was present while drinking. Active carbonation while drinking is a touch low. No lacing.
Smell: getting a ton of white grapes from the wine yeast on the front. That funky Brett meshes perfectly with bright fruit notes of grapes, apricots, mango, kiwi, and peppercorns. Grassy undertones with continuing linger spices pull this aroma through.
Taste: like the aroma, the dry white wine characteristics lead the way. Prairie grass and straw warm up on the palate and provide a pleasant rustic notes. The grassiness yields to a dry, sprite, lemon/lime, and funky back end. A touch of sourness plays along well with the medium bodied fruits throughout. The finish is very dry yet allows the lingering notes of fruit, grass, and funk to shine through.
Mouthfeel: the front is fairly easy and light on the palate, then a corner is turned and a heavy dryness sets in. Really keeps the drinker on their toes. Carbonation is bright which does well with the fruit and sour notes of this brew.
Overall: this is a truly wonderfully put together brew. Nelson Sauvin was an outstanding choice for this brew, their inherent cutting edge was a perfect marriage with the white wine and Brett aspects. Bravo.
