On tap at PreFunk. Murky copper colored brew, small oily head. Straight up sour. Light bodied with puckering sour bite. Dry finish leaves you licking your gums, light citrus notes. Well done!

Pour is deep golden amber, transparent, with a tight light tan head. Nose has nice notes of vanilla and oak with fruit berry and a fair bit of Brett. Taste is a little thinner, notes of metal, light dusty brett, fruitiness is lighter, some grain and a touch of malt. Light body and soft carb.

Straw colored. Lightly sweet fruit notes on the nose. Light bodied. The brett brings a dry funk to this offering. The finish has an effervescent dryness that is reminiscent of champagne.
