A: Pours a hazed copper/orange color. At first a two finger white head forms, and gently recedes to nothing. Not much lace is left behind.
S: Plasticy, phenolic Brett yeast. Cracked pepper, biscuit/doughy malts. Citrus and tart lemons.
T: Follows the nose. Phenolic, funky yeast. Peppery spice. Biscuit malts and tart tangy lemons. Finishes very dry.
M/D: A medium body that is very crisp and dry. Not hard to drink, the bottle is enjoyable. Don't know if I would purchase another though.

Enjoyable enough. The Brett is really apparent and makes this a little to phenolic and plastic for my tastes. Still worth a try.
