Far and away the grand slam of my recent beer run in the Kansas City area... review from notes.
Hazy orange body, suspended particles of yeast, very effervescent. Sparkly, sticky suds that leave a ringed precipice of foam around the glass, and copious intricate lacing on the sides. Distinct Brett in the aroma, funky yeast and leather, wet stone, citrus zest. As the glass sits, it develops a fresh herb and floral nose.
Similar to an Orval-Duvel-Saison Dupont hybrid, with a pleasant soft citrus in the taste. Light spicy undercurrent, almost suggests cinnamon like Orval. Dry bread dough yeastiness from the Brett. Very full bodied, yet lightly tart and lemony with a dry finish. Long lingering aftertaste. Savory and quenching with boatloads of flavor, it would be a crowd pleaser at a springtime picnic.
