750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep reddish brown. Big khaki head. Thick collar.

Smell - Brett is strong. Musty red wine. Intensely oaky.

Taste - Brett is again the strongest flavor. The red wine is as distinct as any red wine flavor I've had in a beer. Strong oak. Dry caramel and toasty malt. Very oaky finish.

Mouthfeel - Starts off crisp and the wine gets a little heavier. Well carbonated.

Overall - Good, but certainly isn't as inspired as other Side Project bottles. (507 characters)

Reviewed from notes. 750ml bottle shared by that special someone - thanks. Batch 1.

A: Pours a hazed orangish red with a thin white head and leaves splotchy lace.

N: Big bretty funk with some cheese, some wood, fruity.

T: Fruity, vinous, barnyard, earthy, a bit of rot in a good way.

M: Moderate body and medium carbonation. Finishes fruity, tart, with some dryness.

O: This is quite good - very good. Well done. (417 characters)
