Served from a 375 ml bottle into a Bruery tulip glass.
A: A murky yellow body that supported a fruitful rocky white head. Anticipated more lacing and head retention throughout the beer, but settled out to normal level after few minutes.
S: A very "Barn-like" and farmhouse upfront with perhaps some sort of oak backing. A also detect a decent amount of tart-sweetness off the top as well. Extremely complex and delicate at the same time!
T: My first impression is combination of intrigue and WOW! 50% of the flavor profile really brings in that dirty blonde characteristic, while the other 50% really draws on that tart experience you tend to expect from something that has 100% Brett. Very impressed and quite possibly the most drinkable and well balanced flavor profile I've had within this style.
M: Light to medium body with just the right amount of carbonation; A bit dry at the tail end.
D: There really isn't enough to say about this beer. Russian River again showed why it dominates this style along with the guys from Lost Abbey. A must try beer. Cheers!

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.
