2010 Vintage on-tap at the Ginger Man in Norwalk, CT.
A-Pours a hazed golden hue. Head is off-white and large. Head looks like an uncooked biscuit. It retains excellently. Very attractive brew.
S-Whoa! This beer smells musty and dusty. Funky. Smells like hay and dirt. Spices and yeast along with vibrant pale-fleshed fruitiness. Very unique and complex.
T-Tastes like the nose. Dusty and musty. Funky yeast and underlying spices. Has an almost vinous flavor. The 2 years spent sitting around really meshed the flavors well with one another.
M-Lighter bodied with tons of bubbles. Dry, dry, dry. Easy to imbibe.
O/D-Didi not know what to expect from this beer and I was definitely surprised. I enjoyed it but did not love it. It was worth a try but I was left a bit disappointed.
Serving type: on-tap

This beer is between gold and straw in color, with a haze similar to a hefeweizen. The aroma is a tropical fruit and peppery spice. There is a passion fruit flavor with a subtle brett flavor of old socks (but old socks that taste good). I have definitely had several beers where the brett is a little overpowering, but this beer had a nice blend of fruity notes from the yeast and sweetness from the malt that works well with the brett. I really enjoyed it because all the flavors work really well together.

The beer pours a very strong and foamy clean white head. The head lasts a while and the lacing on the glass form a perfect ring around the inside of the glass. The beer itself is a clear yellowish copper. The beer smell is fairly complex with a hint of tartiness. The smell has bits of a bread smell from the malts. The tarty Brett smell is there as well and is slightly obscured by the white wine smell as well as the hops. The hops are fairly close to a slightly grassy smell and orangey smell. The white grapes smell makes it difficult to properly distinguish. The beer taste is different from the smell. The beer taste is primarily hops mixed with the Brett. The malts make an appearance as a backbone for the taste and balances out the hops and Brett. In addition to the hops, the beer also has a white wine taste to it with hints of citrus orange. The feels is fairly clean and goes down similar to water. The finish is fairly dry. Overall, a pretty good beer and one that I might get again.
