On Tap in a wine glass during the Wood-Ja event. This is the O-Tay aged in The Phunk barrel for some time.

Pho-Tay looks bright golden honeycomb in appearance with just some sparse bubbles on top. Looks like a big wheat beer and I believe it is unfiltered. Some stick with no legs.

Scent is alot of wheat up front followed by some earth plus some funk from the barrel. Some brett characteristics with some barnyard hay and a grassy hop scent.

By smell alone I knew this would be a winner and by god this is good beer. A nice fruit mixed in with wheat up front with some pear going into a bretty barnyard middle, a nice brett with oak plus a nice WOODY appeal

Starts out fruity and finishes pretty much bone dry. Funk and tart but not mind blowingly sour. The base beer is not lost as well. Medium bodied with a mediumish carb that is not sharp.

A very approachable beer for a beginner and good enough for a sour head. I like the mix and wish I had another of these. Very drinkable and would go well with a bunch of food and the like. A winner in winter.
