I picked this up at the New Glarus Brewery on my May 2012 visit. At that time, this was the only “brewery exclusive” beer that was offered.

Pours a cloudy copper color with a thick, foamy head. Scent is a mixture of citrus and floral scents. Taste is bold with flavors of hibiscus, citrus and other floral tones. Smooth, mellow and delicious. Drinks great and keeps inviting you back for another sip. If you think the New Glarus 6 packs are good, you’re in for a treat as this is even better!

A: Cloudy brownish-golden in color. Forms a moderate sized, fine-bubble, white head. Decent retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Aroma is fairly Brett dominant. Tropical fruit and pineapple are mixed with light notes funk and basement.

T: Starts with a light sweetness. Notes of fruit, mango, and pineapple. Then some zesty spice, sort of like lemon-pepper seasoning. Finishes with a mild metallic twang.

M: Medium bodied. Crisp. Mild bitterness. Medium carbonation. Light dryness on the finish.

O: A very nice beer with a pleasant and inviting Brett character.
