750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Deep reddish brown. Thin khaki collar but not much else.

Smell - Peachy aroma. Faint brett. Lots of caramel. Sweet fruity aroma, presumably from the barrel.

Taste - Sweet caramel and brandy liquor flavor. Much stronger brett presence. Fruitiness comes back in the end.

Mouthfeel - Big, but well carbonated. Hefty beer, very heavy.

Overall - I get all the components, but I don't love it. The brett is an odd addition.
