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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Bottle (forgot the size). Poured into a snifter.

A- Pours a hazy golden color, white creamy head that recedes to a collar.

S- Smells great, lots of fruit, spice, peach, perfume and floral aromas.

T- A bit spicier than the aroma, with more floral, grassy, musty flavors, a bit of peach and lemon, some sweet grain. Tastes very good but the aroma really stood out in my mind.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth feel, a bit dry.

O- A very tasty beer, R&D Sour was definitely my favorite of the two, but I would be glad to drink this again any time.
