Amber gold with an off white head that thins quickly and leaves a bit of lace. The smell is very vinous and fruity at first. There is a bit of wood in the background. The funkiness of the brett is also noticeable in the smell. I'm not a huge sour ale fan but I do have to say that I'm pleasantly surprised by the taste of this beer. Up front this tastes very much like a wine. Although it has enough beer characteristics to make it clear that it isnt' wine. There is a bit of malt and hop in the background along with the acidic character of the brettanomyces make it clear it is beer. Very complex though altogether. The mouthfeel is sharp and very dry the acidity of the brett and moderate carbonation combine to make this very tart. So this is very good I'm definitely a fan and will have to seek out more examples of this style.

3.96/5 rDev -6.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4
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.
