look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Clear orange body. Small white head.

Smell - Strong grape. Like a sweet white wine. Maybe fruitier than that. Some light acidity.

Taste - One-dimensional grape flavor. Less winey. More just grape fruitiness. Some pale malt. Spike of intense yeastiness in the back end with some woodiness.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation and medium body.

Overall - Not as sour as I expected or hoped, really. I seldom say that but it would have made it a little more complex, I think.

Bottle. Thanks, Brian!

An extremely clear golden orange with a thin, white head that falls off to a ring rapidly. The nose is solid. A moderate Brett note with clove, a touch of plastic, earth, dust and some overripe and rotting lemons. A moderate grape character, fresh and fragrant, is present wit floral,fruity and faint mineral notes. Jasmine, rose , some mildly buttery chardonnay and a mild lactic sourness are noticeable. Solid.

The palate opens with a moderate sourness, lemony and mildly lactic with yogurt and buttermilk present. Moderate fruity sweetness, lemony, melony, earthy and floral, are present. Mildly buttery on the finish though not in a way that evokes DMS (thankfully!). Drying on the finish with a little vanilla, this beer is light in body and moderately carbonated. Funk is moderate with a rather Brett heavy palate with clove, earth and a shade of plastic. Very nice stuff.

Pour is clear golden color with a tight white head. Nose is huge grape and peach with notes of dusty brett. Taste isn't quite as bright, brett is a bit stronger and the peach and tangerine seem lighter. Brett has a citrusy presence with a hint of dustiness to it. Body is medium with moderate carbonation and a silky fell.
