Pours pale gold with a large fading head.
Nose shows fruity Brett, earthy notes, Belgian tripel-like spicy phenols. A faint herbal note too.
Similar flavours, with both a earthy and fruity Brett prescence. More sweet malt too, Belgian style.
Carbonation seems excessive.

330ml bottle. Another brett-beer, or folks bier, or volksbier, or something.

This beer pours a rather hazy pale golden yellow colour, with a towering column of puffy, thinly foamy eggshell white head, which leaves some deep-freeze windshield frost lace around the glass as things bleed away.

It smells of mildly funky Brett, blended stone fruit, white pepper, further sour lemon fruit notes, pale grainy malt, generic brewer's yeast, and soft herbal, grassy hops. The taste is more grainy, slightly crackery pale malt, sassy orchard fruit, pleasantly laid-back bacterial Brett notes, clove and white pepper, bready yeast, and floral, earthy hops.

The carbonation is a bit peppy, and somewhat astringent at times, the body a decent medium weight, and actually smooth, due in no small part to the overarching fruitiness. It finishes off-dry, the tame malt and assertive fruit doing well to parry the Brett, yeast, and hops.

An easy-drinking, moderately funked-up pale ale, with enough sideshow yeast to betray its Belgian origins. Not sure who the hirsute Franks of label notoriety are, that's a job for another day.
