3.96/5  rDev -3.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

550ml bottle, poured into Wicked Weed tulip

A- pours a pale and cloudy yellow color with a small foamy white head that reduces to just a small layer skimming the top, leaving no lacing behind

S- classic funky brett aroma with notes of wet hay, oak barrel, lemon peel, fresh grass, barnyard. Underlying spicy saison yeast finishes the nose

T- the brett tartness is definitely more prevalent on the nose than the taste. Pale malt and grain up front mixes with notes of lemon grass, white grape, oak, straw and earth. A hint of tart yeast kicks in before finishes bone dry with lingers of lemon grass and hay

M- medium body with medium, lively & bubbly carbonation lead to a foamy mouthfeel and a bone dry finish

O- a nice showcase of brett, however the aroma was much more funky than the taste

One of the best examples of Brett beers on the market.

From a 500 ml bottle to a tulip. Reviewed from notes dated October 8, 2014.

A-The beer is very light in color, sort-of a dry straw hue. There is a good bit of haze and murk sitting beneath the pure white foam of the head. The head drops quickly and leaves no lace. I see no bubbles in the beer.

S-The aroma is heavy on the brett funk. I get lemon flavors, white grape, and musty, powdery note. It is mildly tart rather than sour.

T-The taste is also heavy on the brett funk. I get lemon, lime, white wine, a touch of oak, and a bit of dry grass. The beer is pretty dry from start to finish and mildly tart.

M-The feel is lighter than average with spritzy, aggressive carbonation that fits the flavor profile well.

O-This is a pretty tasty beer if you are into brett. The beer does a good job of showing off the tanginess that brett can impart and it is dry without getting chalky. The feel is a really good match for the flavors too. A nice effort by Wicked Weed.

Pour is pale straw yellow, slightly hazed, with a good bit of tight white head and a fair bit of lace. Nose is stale sweat, lemon, husky stinky brett, pineapple rind, notes of pepper, and some fresh leather. Taste is strong brett pineapple, a hint of sweaty leather, musky rind, strong carb, light body, prickly on the throat.
