Nice hazy straw color with a bright white head. Not a lot on the nose. A light tartness is there but I'm not picking up much else. The taste is like a white grape skin then a fairly balanced acidity. The tartness is really at the forefront on the palate. There are hints of white grape but it certainly isn't juicy. Interesting beer to try. Easy to drink given the body, but it didn't hit a sweet spot for me as a fruited wild ale.

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.

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.

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.
