Nearly perfect appearance. Large, four-finger, fluffy, white, foamy, head. Brew has nice clarity with nice orange-yellow colors. Spotty lacing, but not half bad. Nice legs!

Lots of fruitful apricot, apple, light pine, biscuity, light cherry, woody...

Awesome, kickass, smooth, wet, fluid bittersweetness. Intriguing earthy-light pine sweetness... Bready, creamy, easy-drinking. Smooth and simple. Not over drawn. Medium viscosity and smooth medium carbonation. Pretty good burn without kicking the legs out from under you.

Wow. This brew rocks. Very drinkable and fresh;y unique. Not a hop or sugar bomb, at all. Highly recommended. Thanks for the great extra, zhanson88!!!

nice, dark urine color. very foamy white head.
smell is rather weird. strange. funky, but not in a 'brett' way.... bottled on 2/11, today is 3/1. so, it cant be THAT old.... is this the way it's supposed to smell and taste?
taste is definitely strange. unlike anything I have ever had before. I cannot describe it. I've had pliny the younger, blind pig and knee deep citra already today. this is NOTHING like ANY of those brews. and it's rated at 93?
there is a funky sweetness from malts, very little hop bitterness, but a funky twang that carries through. very light body. this HAS to be a bad batch. sorry about the relatively bad review, but this is a dumper.... and I've had some good brews today!
wait. could it have been from the 'brett-y' crooked stave I just had? did the funky sourness ruin this beer? my review is NOTHING like the previous reviews. what happened?
