Bottle @ Hamiltion's. Poured a hazy bright yellow-gold with a billowy white head. Thick lacing. Funky straw and citrus. Lots of lemon and sugar, kind of like Lemonhead candy. A fruit basket of other aromas; apple, peaches, pineapple, its all there. Taste is a sweeter sour. Very bretty, but it accents the peaches and pears instead of overruning them. Wheaty/bready flavors in the background enhance the tartness. Its unbelieveably easy to drink. Higher carbonation gives a pop in the finish. Just wish it wasn't so freaking expensive.

375 mL b5

A: After popping the cork, a plume of creeps up the bottle neck, stopping just short of of overflowing. Pours a hazy tangerine with spray on white foam.

S: Lot of funky horseblanket, principally then dust and must. A little orange rind and lemon zest permeating the nose with an imparted dry sweetness.

T: Dang brett, you crazy! Wildly tart without being puckering, huge funk, bitter grasses, quick metallic note, peppery dry and subtle grains.

M: Nice bubbly tingle, drying on the tongue but a sweeter finish.

D: In your face with brett, but the fruity citrus corrals this funk and plays off it nicely.
