Sampled at CBC 2016 - day 2. Plenty of bourbon, oak notes, a bit of brett dryness. Excellent.

On tap at Pine Box Seattle , Beer week. Very unusual for a Brett . Amber in color and tart. Not sure where the other comment about sweetness comes from. This vintage is not sweet

A pretty fun riff on DDBA, this time pumped up w/ Brett. Lots of dark fruit on display, fig-like, a bit of leather and a healthy dose of alcohol. Sort of an umber color, very thin, dissipating head, quite clear, nothing in the way of this big, boisterous onslaught. Goodly hit of bourbon barrel alongside lightly phenolic Brett notes. Something almost vinuous. It's a wild ride, but pretty darn fun and, as per usual with FW, completely well done.
