Put your nose in the glass and it's pretty much all brett, though there's a spicy clove and pepper accompaniment. And once it hits your lips, that's exactly what you taste (upfront, that is): briny, barnyard funk strikes hard on the palate, providing a crisp first impression. Let that initial shock wash over you and what you find underneath is a solid allspice and butternut flavor, peppered with light ginger notes. The fall flavor isn't subtle, either; it's balanced, sure, but it's there in force. As is the funk. In fact, everything about this beer is bold: the scent, the spice, the pumpkin backbone, even the mouthfeel is big and bright. All in all, it turns out great; it's rare that you find a beer that could pair equally well with both Thanksgiving dinner and a big, stinky slice of Gorgonzola. But once you do - as you'd imagine - it's quite a memorable experience. A gorgeous beer. Cheers!

Very good sour but very minimal pumpkin, cacao or spice taste
