Thanks Dio for bringing this one down!
This pours a beautiful golden/yellow. The head on my pour was nearly perfect. Very foamy and attractive white that sat at the top of the glass and didn't disappear.
Smell was a fruity funky smell. I could tell right away I would like this beer.
In the taste, I get that brett taste that I smelled, along with many fruits. Very tart, but not too tart. Its easy to drink this one fast, its so pleasant and smooth.

A: Pours a brilliant orange-tinted gold, with a finger and a half of foamy bright white head. Excellent retention, with a thick ring of foam lasting forever, but minimal lacing. Champagne-like effervescence.
S: Initial impression is loads of pineapple, along with earth, orange, funk, tangerine, and golden ale. The aroma subsides substantially after the initial impression.
T: More subtle flavors on the palate than the nose. A little pineapple and tropical flavors, water, earthiness, with a medium length, quite dry, round citrus and malt finish.
M: Creamy/milky mouthfeel, medium-high, almost-sharp carbonation and medium body.
O: Aroma is nice, but the taste is pretty watery, which really detracts from the experience. There are lots of other shelf sours out there which have this beaten by a furlough.
