Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #55 (August 2011):
Bring on the funk! Hazed-over yellow color, ample frothing. Smells of eucalyptus, lavender, green peppercorn, orange blossom, honey, ripe pears and a hint of white wine. Impeccable smoothness, nearly silky. Dry malt backbone lends more of a dried grass flavor. Mild tartness from the house Brett strain used; dried fruit and wild medicinal herbs run- ning wild all over the palate. Phenolic herbal flavor is pretty bitter—sure, there are some hops in there as well. Nearly bone-dry finish with lots of lingering complexities. Funk-o-licious!

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.
Serving type: on-tap
