A: Pours a crystal clear medium copper-ish amber in color with light to moderate amounts of active visible carbonation slowly rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint golden yellow highlights. The beer has a three finger tall foamy light beige head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer with a small slightly thicker patch and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of brett funkiness with decent amounts of barnyard and hay which is followed by lighter aromas of citrus/lemon zest and pine/resin hops. Just a hint of biscuit malts.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate amount of biscuit + cracker malts with a slightly heavier than moderate amount of brett funky flavors (including some solid barnyard funk and hay). There is a moderate amount of citrus/lemon zest and pine/resin hops which intensify through the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Light to moderate amounts of dryness are present in the finish.

O: A very enjoyable beer with a nice combination of wild/brett flavors and the traditional hop flavors in the base beer - easy to drink and definitely one I would grab again.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Peg's snifter.

A: Pours a clear copper, average carbonation. Forms a big fluffy white head with good retention.

S: Musty Brett funk, light lemony citric tang, resinous hops and light bready malts.

T: Brett barnyard musk and a bit of dishwater character. Spice, melon, and citrus hops, but hop presence is lower than expected. Toasted bready malts and some horseblanket round things out. Dry with a light hop bitterness on the finish.

M: Medium body, carbonation sensation on the low side, and the alcohol is fairly well-hidden.

O: This beer seems to hit some right notes, but there are misses too. Primarily, it needs more hops and/or funk. I feel like in order to make it easier to drink, it sacrificed the good flavors it should have had - just seems a bit middle of the road.
