First had this beer around 7-8 years ago... probably was my first encounter with Brett in all it's glory, before I was avidly reviewing beers and merely exploring different styles that were new and unusual.
Bright straw gold in the glass, racing champagne streamers of co2 rising to the surface. Fluffy head of white foam that rises above the rim of the glass in a convex dome momentarily, before slowly sinking into the glass like a deflated soufflé. Copious sheets of lacing in the glass.
Fruity notes of canned fruit cocktail or pineapple in the nose, not too funky in the scheme of things. as it warms there's a trace of wet hay and sourdough.
Dry and crisp, slightly astringent, plenty of effervescence. Fruity apple and pear notes, some dry hay and grassiness in the aftertaste. The earthy Brett yeast is fairly restrained and doesn't veer too far into weirdness. Overall it's a good representation of a Brett beer, an introductory one.
Paired nicely with Cabot clothbound cheddar.
