Smell is light. Some lemongrass, a little white pepper, little bit of earthiness. Taste is light, with the lemon being noticeable upfront. Mellows a little bit but then you get a little funkiness from the Brett. Flavors that linger on the palate are a slight sourness that finishes nice and crisp with some pepper notes. This beer wasn't as funky as I was expecting, no hop character noticeable, but I'm gonna assume that is because it is a year old.
