Bottle pour from the brett takeover @ perennial
The beer pours a cloudy, dull golden color, no sediment, with a white head that fades to nothing rather quickly. The nose is a rustic graininess, tart vinous white grapes, lemony citrus, and some straw. The taste has a mild grain sweetness upfront that quickly becomes tart and fruity as it sucks all saliva from your palate. It has a mouthfeel that is also grainy and quite tart, quenching and dry, and has interesting fruit qualities that pull all beer's funkiness together. It's definitely not an end of spectrum sour, in fact it's quite drinkable in. I'm definitely excited for the next release.

Late sunset in the glass. Sharp and vinous nose. Tangerine, oak, Chardonnay and a bit of hay funkiness. The barrel character on this is one of the best I've had in a beer. Crisp, tart and completely refreshing.
