On tap at Brew At The Zoo held at the Los Angles Zoo in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours an opaque dark orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, fruit, earth, and Brett aromas. Taste is much the same with fruit, earth, and Brett flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of Brett bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with nice fruit and Brett qualities all around.

Straw yellow with plenty of white foam.

Not much.

Also not much. Not getting the hops, malt or yeast. Just bubbles and water. Bad bottle, maybe?

Highly carbonated, not out of style though.
