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!
