3.68/5 rDev -9.1%
750 ml bottle. Pours hazy orange yellow with a medium creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is brett, sweet tropical fruit and musty, stinky yeast with some pepper.
The flavor is grapefruit and sweet tropical fruit with earthy brett and a peppery bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall, it's interesting with lots of brett and spice. I don't think it all comes together really well. Some of the musty bitterness is a bit much.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Hazy orange body. Nice big white head. Retains very well. Nice chunky collar and a very wispy surface.
Smell - Lots of bright citrus. Intense grapefruit. Some pale malt. Light acidity. Kinda bretty. All over the place, as per Jolly Pumpkin's standard procedure.
Taste - Again, very citrusy up front. Grapefruit and orange. Pale malt. Bretty in the back end, but it's quickly dominated by bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Medium light body. Excessively bitter. Well carbonated.
Overall - The citrus is nice, but man is it bitter.
