Poured into a tulip. The color is murky straw. There is a quarter inch off-white head.

The aroma really shows off the brett. There is a nice spicy funk here.

The taste is very dry, with lots of earthy brett taking over. There is a nice tangy rey influenced finish.

This is very drinkable; the brett and rye are well shown here.

Received this as a Christmas gift. Poured into a tulip. This one pours a muddy golden copper with a finger of beige head. A bit of sticky lace.

Spicy rye in the aroma with a nice brett undertone. Hints of a cinnamon and white grapes on the aroma. The pallet is very dry. Hints of white grapes with lots of brett funk on the pallet. Light notes of rye, but it's a bit less noticeable than on the aroma.

The body is light with somewhat sharp carbonation. Overall this one was a nice surprise. Real easy to drink; I'd love more of this.

Shoulder of bottle is clearly marked with a bottle on date, this one is 10/30/12. Poured in to a tulip. Body is a murky amber color, I thought it would be darker being a rye beer. Thin tight off white head fizzes out quickly leaving a ring around the glass and lacing was minimal. Very little rye spice in the nose, mostly sweet malts. The brett doesn't come thru in the aroma category either, still a pleasent smelling beer. A little bit of the rye bill comes thru upfront on the tongue but is quickly taken over by the still muted flavors of the brett. Some hop bitterness is detected as well but no one flavor dominates this beer. Mouthfeel was thin and crisp with decent carbonation. Easy drinkin at 5% and plenty of flavor. Might go back and get another bottle to see how the brett developes over time.

Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of caramelized rye malt with light spicy notes with limited sweetness. Taste is also a rich rye malt with light spicy undertone and a dry finish. Brett notes are mentioned on the label but I was unable to identify them. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not bad thought I was expecting more complexity from the Brett notes.
