Bottle poured into Lawsons stemware.

Removed the cage carefully to have the cork fly out at the ceiling and the beer to follow.

Slow pour gives you a thick off white soapy head.

Smell is of Brett. Nothing else to list here.

I enjoy brett very much but this is all I can pick up from this beer.

Overall, I wouldn't grab this unless you really really love brett and nothing else.

Shared with JLindros. This bottle popped loudly when I barely touched the cork.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice crystal clear amber hue with an enormous four finger fluffy head that fades to leave sticky lacing and sudsy blanket.

S - Aromas of acidic funk, floral, earthy, little musty. Lots of brett galore.

T - Taste is absolutely opposite of the nose. Gone is the floral and earthy notes. Rather phenolic, lots of bandaid. Borders on undrinkable.

M - Mouthfeel is aggressively carbonated, way too much.

O - Overall this beer was horrific. Plain and simple.

Thanks to rudzud.

Huge fizzy head hits multiple fingers and fades fairly quickly, messy lacing, mostly clear orange honey color.

Nose brings lots of funk, horse hair, mild barnyard and some tangy sour fruit, phenols, mostly just Brett, earthy must, little dankness, just Brett B all over.

Taste brings a weird bitterness, so much funky Brett B, horse blanket city, just straight horse blanket barnyard funk, almost undrinkable, phenolic mess, chemical bandaids as plastic, bleh, totally undrinkable.

Mouth is med bod, little slimy, way too much carb.

Overall horrible.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Mostly clear with a big off white head. Retains very well.

Smell - Bretty. I keep focusing on the brett. A little bit of sweetness. Some citrusy hops.

Taste - Earthy brett. Sweet malt pushes through but then gets covered up by hops. The brett and hops give it a soapy flavor. The finish is excessively bitter.

Mouthfeel - The lingering flavor is bitterness. Overpowering. Medium carbonation. Medium light body.

Overall - Very unpleasant to drink. Drainpour.
