4/5 rDev +4.4%
Serving glass: Poured from bottle into IPA glass.
Appearance (4.5): Cloudy orange-amber with thick, sticky head and nice lacing.
Smell (4): Barnyard funk and wet horse blanket. Some light citrus and toasted malts.
Taste (4): Strong Brett taste, pretty funky. There is some IPA underneath, with citrus, pine and spice, but not as much as expected. Light toasted malts.
Feel (4): Highly carbonated, medium bodied, very dry and slightly tart.
Overall (4): Nice Brett beer, but I expected a little more IPA to add to the complexity.

4.28/5 rDev +11.7%
Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass.
Big surprising supper clear and very dark copper red body color. Head is off white, slightly tan to yellow tinged, with a soapy retention and big three fingers tall height to complete. Soapy bubbles cling, lots of staying power. Some ring like lacing. Very neat looking brew.
Real nice aromatics. Peach and hop floral like notes, maybe a little bit of brown sugar sneaking out. Some faint brett dryness, mild farmhouse funk, with juicy tones of hop drive taking away any sense of dryness or heat. Very nicely balanced and complimenting, with the hops forward ahead of the brett a little but not overwhelmingly.
Palate brings some saison like resemblance. Peppery heat and dryness, but with a matching sugary dipa like finish. Big juiced pine and some citrus fruit like tones. Black pepper aftertaste. Great carbonated pushing mouthfeel through a thick malt body, actually makes a real good cut into the palate and taking away the syrupy quality.
This is a real neat brew, an interesting American IPA Saison sort of hybrid that is fun to drink, and filled with lots of diverse character.
