This beer pours a Brown with a reddish hue to it with a nice off white head that leaves a lot of belgian lacing.
The aroma is of brett funk with spice, molasses, and some dark fruit.
The flavor follows the nose. There is some sour fruit like spiced apples and cherries with a nice cocoa flavor in the back of the throat. The brettomyces leaves this beer with the perfect amount of sourness.
The mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
This is a very drinkable beer. Definately pick some up if you see it.

On tap at Winos in BG. I had this beer a while back, but just getting around to entering the review. Boring day at work.
A. Light mahogany with dark amber hues. Translucent. Poured a thick, fine bubble egg shell head that retreats to a frothy rim. Strong laces. Healthy head.
S. Traditional JP yeast. Neutral oak, light malts. Bretts.
T. Medium to light tartness. Medium roasted malts. Neutral oak. Fairly simple flavor.
O. Smooth, medium body, medium body.
O. This is a very straight-forward, lightly sour ale. I usually pass on browns, but this is not your typical brown. This is a sour, no doubt. This has session written in BIG LETTERS. I go for this every summer, but this can be enjoyed any season.
Serving type: on-tap
