Large bottle (1 Pt 9.4 oz), cracked it open and got a good fizzle down the side of the bottle, definitely let it sit a while before opening if it has been transported.
Pours a 1 finger head that goes away except for a small haze on the top, appears golden and with a grassy green tint.
The aroma is complex: Ground up chalk, candy cigarettes and like a sweet wine, pinot grigio or riesling maybe, and overall smell of rural grasslands.
Taste is very sweet and earthy mix; grainy, mild amount of hops and alcohol flavors mesh perfectly together, citrus aftertaste (mostly lemon, sour apple maybe), overall reminds of dry, sweet wine aftertaste; definitely tasting the oaky, woody character here...Aftertaste is pretty amazing, about 5 minutes later the citrus is still there and it leaves an oily, lubricated mouthfeel.
This is my first beer of this variety, I really like it, totally new tastes, if you are looking for a new style of beer to try, give it a shot. Got it from the $3 discontinued bin at my Stony Brook Hy Vee Spirit Shop, headed back right now to buy the remainder they have.

A - Pours a hazy golden orange with a two-finger foamy white head. Heavy amount of soapy lacing.
S - Aromas of lemon zest, brett funkiness, and sweet malts.
T - Opens up with a nice malty sweetness. The sweetness fades into lemon zest and brett funkiness. The finish has a touch of white pepper that mixes well with the lingering brett.
M - Medium bodied with medium/high carbonation. Very crisp and refreshing. Nice dry finish.
O - This is a damn tasty Biere de Garde. Very drinkable and refreshing.
