Cork and cage 375ml bottle
A - translucent golden color. Apricot in color is the best I can do to describe it. Very nice color. Any sort of aggressive pour produces a large amount of thick white head, retains for a very long time.
S - mild vinegar, sour grapes, apple cider, some warmer almost floral type notes.
T - best sour I've had to date. Pronounced sourness without any pucker, a champagne like dry grape flavor, funky earthy type notes going on in the background. Finishes super quick super dry. It's an interplay between beer, champagne and white wine in the best way possible. Very very good.
M - super high carbonation, really plays well with the flavor. Nice presentation.
O - like I said above, my favorite sour to date. Ultra balanced between the flavor profile, level of sourness and mouthfeel. Just an excellent beer, would buy this again and again.

Poured on draft at the brewery. chalk board noted this was the 2013 batch, poured March 4, 2014. pours hazy yellow with white head. Sour apple aroma, vinegar, lots of Brett. Nice Brett on the flavor with sweet citrus fruits and lemon peel, some pears and green apples. Tart and lactic but not mouth puckering sour to deal with here. Very light and goes down easy with near spritzy carbonation. Really nice Brett beer that I would definitely have again.
Serving type: on-tap
