A bottle conditioned ale so it poured a bit thick. The head stuck around for a while with this hazy beer. It had a lemony hay flavour with a slight bitterness. Out of all the beers we tried during this particular tatsing it had the lowest ABV at 4.5% but presented higher in the mouth. A great sipping beer.

Batch 1245 bottled 11/02/2012. Quite aged.

Pours slightly cloudy light orange/yellow. Large frothy white head that recedes slowly. Decent amount of lacing. Significant carbonation.

Tart apples, overripe fruit in the aroma. Musty and earthy brett character. Lemons and grassy hay. Some crackery malt present. Pineapple as well. Age has treated the beer nicely. Brett has really taken on a nice complex character.

Tart lemons at first given way to earthy funk. Malt is still present but backgrounded taking on a soft cracker character. Very dry, somewhat oaky. Tart but still approachable.

Highly carbonated with some tannins. Very dry which adds to the perception of tartness.

This is a beer that has aged quite well. I found this beer to be a bit simple (though still quite good) fresh. Much more complex with age, but still quaffable.
