Appearance – Pours a semi translucent dark color with a mix of brown, copper, ruby, and amber. Has a massive head and huge lacing.

Smell – Brett, grape, white wine, and bitter lime.

Taste – Brett, grape juice, and somewhat bitter white wine.

Mouthfeel – Lightly carbonated and dry. I’m surprised that this is 9%abv. Feels like 5% tops. Although it had a massive head with great lacing, it felt somewhat flat.

Drinkability – This wasn’t as good as I expected for one of the top rated Bière Bruts.
