Split with JLindros, Duffy, and Kyle.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a crystal clear golden hue with thin wisps that fade to leave more light wisps.

S - Aromas of funky brett, great lacto, almost fruit like apricot notes, light yeast. Very bright.

T - Taste is rather yeasty with good brett and yeast note. Good faint fruit, good faint blondes. Pleasant.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, body is nice but the lack of carbonation hurt.

O - Overall this beer was tasty, the nose was really great but the taste was just alright.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Pale orange body. Small white head. Thick collar.

Smell - Bready. Very grainy. Lightly acidic. Lemon. Kind of a wine barrel presence.

Taste - Light white wine. Very lemony. Bready and very winey. Gets a little acetic in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Well carbonated.

Overall - This isn't very complex, but it's nice. Simple and nicely sour.
