4.6/5 rDev +6.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A - 4.25 - nice golden amber color with a white head that dissipates down pretty quickly. Hazy but probably because I poured the entire thing aggressively into the glass.
S - 4.5 - Green apple, sour lemon, barnyard flavors from the brett. Hay, bread, wheat.
T - 4.75 - Great sour beer. Sour green apple, lemon, white wine, bready yeast, barnyard flavors lingering in the background. White grape.
M - 4.5 - Sour, but not as sour as some other beers. It still allows you to taste some of the citrus and barnyard flavors. light-medium mouthfeel. alc covered. Aftertaste is bready/wheaty and still a little tart.
O - 4.5 - Good beer. Not that much alcohol flavor. Sessionable. Expensive and not available in most places though.

4.65/5 rDev +7.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Hazy golden body with 1 finger white head that sticks around forever. High levels of carbonation.
S: Very vinous. Tart green apple, lemon, and a bit of tropical fruit. Brett funk in the background. Could almost pass as a fruit forward white wine.
T: Tart peach and juicy pear initially, followed by more white wine. Meyer lemons and mango. Only minor funk from the Brett, as expected in a 100% Brett fermentation. Beautifully tart and fruit forward, could literally drink this all day.
M: Thin bodied and effervescent. Finishes dry and slightly tannic, further emphasizing the white wine characteristics.
O: Just a beautiful beer. Refreshingly tart and drinkable, yet provides a solid array of flavors and aromas. Not as complex as its bacteria inoculated cousins for obvious reasons, but is a fantastically balanced example of a 100% Brett beer. Right on Vinnie!
