Thanks to mrbubbler for sharing this one at the Revenge Of Instant Replay bottleshare held at Instant Replay in Canoga Park, CA.
Pours a hazy yellow with a foamy bone head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour with malt, grain, lemon, acidic, and Brett aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly sour malt, grain, Brett, and earth flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty but seems to have a more sour aspect in the aroma to me.

Bright golden-colored body with a slight haze and tons of visible carbonation. The head is sudsy, light and foamy and leaves walls of lace ad it recedes. 4.25
Barnyard funk is strong in this one, as is the brett-y presence. I get plums and peach with a strong tartness. 4.25
Initially, the taste is lemony, then peach, then some peppery brett. It's got a lot in common with a saison, but with a heavy tartness. There's even a bit of wine-like grape flavor. 4
Light and champagne-like, the body is surprisingly thin. Almost too much thinness, but it's refreshing. The yeast provides a spritely effervescence that rushes on the palate towards the finish. It finishes very dry. 4
I think I expected more body and perhaps bolder flavor, but this is still an excellent brew. It's incredibly easy-drinking. 4.05

Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass at a tasting. Big thanks to fire34fighter for the bottle! From notes.
Straw lemon yellow, and quite pale. A white bright collar, and whispy creamy looking top to match with.
Bouquet is pretty basic, and quite subdued. Small lemon tartness, simple, not particularly noticeable or varied. It's decent but really not much is going on here.
Palate improves considerably on first sip. Real good lemon tartness and balance of sweet malts. Minimal tangy palate feel with creeping surprising and playful carbonation that compliments. Subdued brett like action with minimal pepper, and a crispness that comes out more like a pils.
Overall not too bad, kind of interesting take on the style.
