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: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

(Served in a snifter)
A- This beer pours a thick, 3/4 of a glass, head of dense foam that settles down to a dark brown body and there is still thick lacing with each sip.

S- The earthy tart wet wood that takes on a pencil shavings note before becoming more dry old oak as it opens. There is a nice hint of Flanders Red yeast esters with cherry hints and basement hues.

T- The nice dark fruit tartness leads to a bit more funk character and some old barrel notes to follow. The white cheese rind brett taste and some earthy darker malt notes blend with wet oak in the finish.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a full roundness from the gentle fizz and no real alcohol heat or astringency noticed.

O- This beer has a great wild funk character blended with barrel notes and some good yeast esters and malt flavor for support. This is very drinkable.

4.33/5  rDev +20.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: dark brown in color, 1.5 inch head, high carbonation, cloudy

Smell: chocolate and oak

Taste: oak, hazelnut, toasted malt, sweet chocolate and bourbon--especially at the end

Mouthfeel: moderate carbonation, heavy body, sweet with oakiness that gives a slight bittering

Overall: A nice malty and oaky treat. Really loving the complexity on this. Would not have thought of it as an American Wild, but it is delicious. Very subtle flavors that mix well. I will get this again.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

760 ml bottle was poured into a large tulip glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a crazy 4 finger head that reduced to a puffy off white mocha layer. Super nice lacing on the glass from the reduced head. It is a dark brown/black color with no clarity. More lacing as the beer was drank.

Smell: Funky, barnyard, rubber tires, bready, and oak.

Taste: Vanilla, oak, whisky, alcohol, funk, barnyard, rubber tire, and bready malts.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, chewy, puckering, boozy, medium to full bodied, medium carbonation, and very interesting.

Overall: What a very interesting beer. The Brett and aging in whiskey barrels makes it interesting. Once again bringing wild ales to a new level.
