4.08/5 rDev -6.8%
A- thin fizzy head that goes away quickly to a collar, some clumpy lacing sticks.
S- fresh, spritzy, fruity champagney.
T- mangoes and other tropical fruits. Champagne qualities.
M- mouthfeel is on the thicker side for a sour. Low but creamy carbonation.
D/O- different, and sometimes that's all you can ask for. Would recommend for crossover wine and beer people. Thanks for the trade woosterbill!

thanks to duff27 for the share!
375ml bottle; poured into tulip glass.
Appearance: yellow bodied beer with no head.
Smell: heavy white wine barrel and tropical fruits. Simple, but nice aroma.
Taste: Mild tartness. White wine. Peaches and pears. Nice dose of oakiness.
Mouthfeel: light body with low carbonation levels. Almost flat. Slightly syrupy.
Overall: This is a good beer, but carbonation would really make this a great beer.

4.5/5 rDev +2.7%
Served from a 375ml bottle into an Allagash Coolship tumbler. Bottle number 360 of 446. Batch 2.
Appearance- Hazy gold with one finger white head that sticks around for a while. Nice lacing remains.
Smell- Heavy brett, but through it, I can still smell the 668 base. Sweet caramel and muted hops remain, but Brett is predominant. Lemon and chardonnay grape also abound.
Taste- Buttery vanilla oakieness (assuming from the chardonnay barrel), light lemons, green grapes, peaches. Fruit forward, but that buttery vanilla is outstanding. No booze either. Not sour, but incredibly lightly tart. Brett dryness and funk.
Mouthfeel- Light carbonation and light body. Dry with no pucker.
Overall- I'm glad this beer lives up to my expectations I had for it, because it's one I've wanted to try for a while. I still have 2 bottles and damn right I'll be aging this one to really bring out that brett!
