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.
