750ml bottle into a matching Fantome tulip. The brew appears a clear color of amber at first and subsequent pours get increasingly hazed. A light off-white cap restd atop about a finger strong. Some spotty to webby strings of lace stick to the glass.

The aroma is lemony lactic with a mild oxidative touch smelling a bit like moist paper/cork with plenty if earthen brett notes. As it warms up, it gets a hint of vegetative quality almost like cabbage.

The flavor is surprisingly malty with notes of caramel/toffee and suggestions of oxidation. It is earthy and a bit vegetative with a noticeable amount of neutral hop flavors that are a bit hebal. It displays a bit of a tangy alcohol aftertaste hinting towards lemony lacto. More sips reveal a bit of apple cidar vinegar.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. It is fairly easy drinking, complex and enjoyable. The oxidation/age of this beer is noticeable but overall this was better than expected.

Bottle at Fantome-a-thon 2012

A hazed orange color with a finger of white head. A touch of cork up front followed by a robust yeast and funk aroma. Lots of straw, grass, and must with a surprising, almost candy sugar, sweetness. Lots of lemon zest with a subtle tartness. Lightly tart on the palate with some lemon and red berry flavors. A pleasant yeastiness and a hint of grass. As it warms, more fruit character comes through.
