Batch E!032.
Blind tasting, and had this one next to a E!027 Brute. I hadn't been a huge fan of the Brutes I've had before, but I liked 27 a LOT, and it definitely was my favorite between that and this beer in our tasting.

Cloudy pour, ruby-amber in color, with a thin, wispy, white head that dissipated, leaving a few stray bubbles on top. Well, even in a blind tasting, it was apparent there was either fruit or flower petals in this one. Funky aroma, brett, horseblanket, leather, light berries just barely peeking through. Twinge of tartness up front in the taste, floral notes, light berry notes that probably didn't come out as much as when the beer was fresh, funky yeast, leather, fresh cut grass. Light-medium body, prickly and somewhat acidic mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Very nice overall, even if Brute overshadowed it, IMO.
