A: A nice dark copper in color with a nice one finger off white head at the top, minimal lacing around the glass.

S:Lots of brett at the front of the nose on this one, followed by some tropical fruit and nice malt tailend.

T: Lots of sweetness up front from the brett, followed by a bite of a sour fruit, lots of tropical flavors coming through.

M: Medium bodied, lots of carbonation, and dryness.

O:Nice balance to this beer, lots funk coming from the brett, but really refreshing to say the least, the sweetness is masked by the bitterness.

Aroma is riddled with brett, acetic acid, must, horse blanket, floral notes, and muddled fruit. Flavor is lightly sour, musty, but falls a little short with a bitter finish. Notes of sweet tarts and confectioners sugar emerge as it warms. A little too bitter for my liking.
