A - Has a hay straw and golden colored body with a white one finger head.

S - Funky nose with hints of tart lemon, oak and juicy sweet fruits.

T - Acidic lemon/orange profile, white wine busts through and it has a oak wood finish.

M - Light bodied and medium carbonation. Dry finish and tannic/acidic too.

O - Enjoyable and has enough twists & turns in the beer to make it an interesting drink.

Poured from a 16.9 oz bottle into a Yankees pint glass (go Yanks!)

A - Pours a crystal clear pale yellow with one finger of bubbly white head when poured carefully. Obviously much more haze if the sediment is mixed up with it. Retention is only a couple minutes, but lots of carbonation bubbling up continuously.

S - Very mellow nose. Slightly bready with a little bit of citrus.

T - Full of sweet citrus up front giving way to some maltiness and bread-like flavor. Finish is distinctly tart.

M - Full bodied and then finishes nice and dry. I'm glad it's a big bottle, because my palette is left wanting more after every sip.

O - Some farmhouse ales can be overly yeasty or spicy, but this one is a nice balance of fruity sweetness, malt character, and tartness.

Bottle from Tipples. Pours cloudy yellow with a big bubbly white head on top. Bretty funky tart aroma, lemon peels, dry dusty oakiness, funky yeast. Nice. Flavor is dry oaky Brett, yeast funk, some pineapple notes, apricot, a bit of tart citrus peel. Some juiciness and dryness, sweet and bitter. Light to medium bodied, medium plus plus carbonation, very crisp finish. These guys really kill it with their funky farmhouse brews. Good stuff!

Pours a hazy-almost-cloudy dull gold with 2 fingers thick soapy white head. A sheet of wispy lace coats the glass to the end. Smell: herbal, doughy, dried pineapple, fruity... nice but muted. Taste: mildly tart and extremely juicy peach, herbal and grassy, some vinous + oak character, but it's really about the fruity brett action. Peach skin and herbal finish, medium bodied with building carbonation, drying throughout. Nice.
