From the source.

A- Tap to tulip pour with a clear pale gold body and a tiny white foam. Foam falls to nothing and there is no lace.

S- Tart lemons of the top with lactic and a touch of acetic; sour for Brett. Sour fruits, cherry, straw and spice.

T- Again the tartness dominates and seems uncharacteristically sour for a fully Brett beer as lactic and acetic shine. Lemon, underripe stone fruits, straw, slight base grains, berries, spice and vinous pale fruit esters. Some barn must funk.

MF- Very dried out light body with a slightly frothy texture. High end crisp carbonation and a sour finish.

Brett is different than I have been accustomed to. So much tartness dominating the palate with hints of funk, straw and fruits.
