Cloudy gold, a couple fingers of foam, good surface coverage.
Funky Brett aroma, wet hay and sandalwood, dried lemon peel.
Taste is all funky Brett, much the same as the aroma with a bone dry finish and mild bitterness.
Nicely balanced and drinkable, the Brett dominates. For my money Saison Brett holds its own against this, but it was nice to try.

Saison is my second favorite style and this is certainly a stellar example. Lots of brett, hops and funk on a light, bubbly body with amazing head retention this beer is exceptional and should be sought after.
