Aug. 08 Edition.
Poured into mini snifter.
Pours hardly any head. No retention or lace. Color is a hazed sunset orange.
Aroma: Some oak, sour flavors, lemons, yeast. Some barnyard funk. Lots of brett flavor. Pretty decent.
Taste: A lot of oak and brett. Lemon spices, farmyard funk. A little heat shows. It's not to bad, but for a wild ale I was expecting more than just a huge amount of brett.
Mouthfeel: Crisp, dry, and thin. Some carbonation bubbles roll over the palate. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends with a dry spiced aftertaste.
Overall, not a bad beer. Not anything that I am overly impressed, but solid and I am glad I got to try it. However, I do wish it had some other bugs in it.

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.
