Poured from a 750 ml into a stemmed goblet,
A - Autumn straw, gentle carbonation feeds a quickly evaporating thin cap. A string of fine lacing clings in fine fashion.
S - Initial fruits on the tropics side, yields to sweet malts, yeast esters, a kiss of Brett, some tannins are pronounced.
T - Papaya, dark tropical fruits, sweet, then a young Brett bottle condition offers hints of the beers tragectory.
M - Medium in body, a bit slick with an underlying tart potential. Finish is leathery and wet.
O - A fine offering from CBC, they are on a roll with the 750 ml program. One delightful offering after another.
Cheers

Had this bottle for a little while, no date though.

Pours very clear golden straw color, light fluffy head great lacing.

Nose big Brett, combination of Brett C and Brett B, big earthy barnyard B funk, horse blanket, with pineapple tropical Brett C little tangy, straw malt and sweet blond malt, mild grassy floral hops and tropical citrus too I think.

Taste brings a sweet malt, blond malt and a little straw, big Brett funk again, Brett B horse blanket barnyard funk, mild Brett C pineapple and tropical notes, tropical fruits even banana and citrus, then grassy floral hop with a little bitterness. Finish is dry, little more grassy hop bitterness, big Brett funk lingering, some Brett B funk and some Brett C pineapple notes, fair citrus.

Mouth is med bod, decent carb though I expected more.

Overall really interesting, Brett characters are great, hops are nice but I wish they were more predominant but probably faded with age and Brett strengthening. Still a very nice Brett beer.
