4.5/5  rDev +25.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

750mL bottle served into a pinot noir glass

Pours a nutty brown color. It looks pretty dark, but there's some lighter tones at the edges of the body. The sand-colored head is pretty active (this IS a Brett beer, after all).

The primary aroma at this stage in the bottle's lifespan is earthiness. This beer smells like silt and loam and dirt and other synonyms for the damn ground. There's some black fungus mushroom character here, and some oolong tea as well.

The taste follows the nose. This is an amber-like toasty malt body accentuated by all sorts of earthy flavors. It's important to note that this strain of Brettanomyces isn't giving off funky, barnyard notes. It's the cleaner kind of Brett flavor that you get from an Orval. Flavors of soil and mushroom and grass and wood. I dig earthiness, so I dig this.

The mouthfeel is active and sharp, which really helps keep this beer drinkable. Overall, I really enjoyed this experiment. You have to be into earthiness to like this beer, though.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

This pours a dark brown color with a huge, foamy, light brown head. The aroma is very yeast as expected based on the pour. The taste is smooth, mellow, and just a touch of whiskey flavor that is no where near as bold as the bourbon barreled beers. This is an interesting yet simple brew that delivers an unique take on barrel aging.
