750ml bottle, June 2009, drank 11/6/09, poured into an Allagash chalice. A tight two finger head receds to nothing, a bright perfectly clear, copper hued body. The nose is fairly complex, tart tropical fruits, some nice funkiness - that damp cardboard thing goin on, also some sweetness around the edges, hard to pin down. The taste is great, tart, funky, pineapple, many layers, I am having a hard time pinning them down, but very balanced. Mouthfeel is medium/light bodied with a light carbonation. Yum, this one really does it for me, I love the tart tropical fruit flavors I am getting, goes great with my duck confit panino and belgian fries!

Poured from a corked & caged 750 mL bottle into a Brewer's Art goblet. Dated October 2013. Cork hit the ceiling, but no gushing.
A: Amber/rose-colored body with good clarity. Scant white head that rapidly disappears. Light lacing.
S: Light brett with vinous quality. Grapes and more subdued stone fruit. Mild earth.
T: Tart initially with a dry, even-handed Brett character shortly thereafter. There is the presence of red wine and associated tannins. Mostly dry finish. Lightly hopped. Alcohol presence is average for the ABV. Tartness lingers in the aftertaste.
M: Light-to-moderate carbonation with a fairly light body. Open on the palate.
O: Solid brew, if a bit less impressive than expected. Probably should have sat on this one a bit longer. I was hoping for a bit more complexity, but fans of wine barrel aging and brettanomyces will enjoy this.
