08/08/13 From bottle. Surprisingly different from the Victory Sunrise Weiss. This is much more robust & spicy. Very assertive, yet enjoyable. Ever have a very BIG friend. The kind that almost scares people that don't know him? This is like that guy. A gentle giant as it were. Make room.

22oz bottle poured into a tulip. This bottle is a year or so old at least. No date to be seen, but it's old label.

A: Very hazy Sundrop yellow color. Creamy white head stands at three fingers. Lacing leaves broken sheets on the glass.

S: light lemony tartness. Dryer malt aromas of short bread and pound cake. A mild and pleasant rustic Brett character blankets everything. White pepper and vague yeasty spice. Wafts of green, grassy hops every so often.

T: Farmy Brett up front. Rustic and funky. Wheaty. Light lemony spritz. Just a slight hint of oily and herbal hops. White peppery spike of alcohol toward the back. Quick flash of tropical ester. A tad medicinal. Crackery malt. Very dry. Funky finish.

M: Very light in body. Dry and very well attenuated. Slight malt firmness, some frothiness possibly due to wheat? Highly effervescent and scrubbing. Some mild alcohol warmth.

O: This one flies under the radar. Where else can you find a 22oz, 7.5% abv Brett saison for around the $5-6 mark per bottle? Perhaps one of the best value buys out there. If you're new to Brett, go to school with this beer. It certainly isn't the epitome of the style, but it's simple, pleasant,easily crushable, and a good introduction to the world of brettanomyces. It is worth noting that this bottle kicked around for a year or two. Brett tends to dry out and funk up a beer with time, so this may be quite a different experience when fresh.
