A big, huge thanks to Wilson for grabbing me some Wicked Weed. Good peoples! The body is tarnished copper bordering on russet with glowing ruby highlights when backlit. A touch of haze makes peering through the body difficult. The white head is wispy and takes a hard pour to form foam which quickly crackles down to a ring around the glass and a small island.

The nose is really unique. Spoonfuls of lactic pineapple funk lead the way with assertiveness There's also a good deal of buttery oak with faint vanilla. Tropical hop notes, papaya especially, are present along the middle and accentuate the gobs of pineapple. The oak becomes a little spicy with some warmth and a wealth of orchard fruit emerges, musty peach and mildly sweet green apple. Very interesting.

Background characteristics emerge much more in the flavor profile than in the nose. The lactic pineapple still comes across upfront but isn't the dominating force that the nose let me believe. Musty peach and green apple linger mid-palate through the finish along with wild flower brettiness. The orchard fruit really brightens on the finish along with a spicy oak character. Soft vanilla and buttery oak lay at the periphery. There is really a lot of depth to this beer. Each drink is something new.

Wicked Weed has done a great job dialing in the carbonation. The weight is squarely between light and medium while the carbonation is smooth but active. There's enough zing to awaken the tongue without being too fast to obliterate any lingering flavors. A touch of tannic dryness picks up on the finish. Nicely done.

There seems to be a lot of dry hopped brett pale ales out there these days. Amorous is a far cry from any I've come across. There's a plethora of fruity notes from the base yeast, Brett, or lacto. Each aspect adds another layer of depth while the oak still shines through in harmony. This is my first taste of Wicked Weed and I'm already craving more. Thanks, Wil!
