Got this as an extra in a trade with [I think] DoubleSunshine. Thanks!
Shared with a few folks at a recent tasting.

Medium amber color, with a foamy white head that left some lacing on the glass. In the nose, some bready malts and yeasty funk, slightly vinous. Taste of sweet bready malts, light fruity essence, grape and mild cherry, leather and earth, brett imparting a little funk. Body was about medium, carbonation was moderate. A good melding of flavors, yet nothing intense going on. Kind of walked the edge of a few different styles here, but overall it was an enjoyable brew.

750 ml bottle poured into a glass.

A: Amber/golden color with a tiny white head.
S: Smells amazing. Lots of wine and brett aromas.
T: Lots of brett again, tasted a lot like wine. Lots of fruity, funky flavors in there.
M: Medium body and decent carbonation. A bit of dryness.
O: I really enjoyed this beer and would recommend it to anyone. Even my non-beer drinking friends seemed to enjoy the wine characteristics in there.

Shared by myself during BRoss242’s send-off party before he moves! Will miss you man! Served from growler into a Mikkeller taster flute. Poured a deep red-orange with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, fruit, funk, earth, and sour. The flavor was of sweet malt, cherry, funk, and earth. It had a light feel on the palate with high carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. I was really looking forward to this one ever since I first heard about it going into barrels to age with the Brett. I have to say that it turned out quite well. The Brett definitely was the star of the show and made this known throughout the glass. Everyone who tried the growler at the tasting agreed as well. Definitely a well done brew that is worth trying for any fan of that pure Brett flavor.

Pours amber-gold with a thin white head that fades to a very slight ring. Big aromas of red wine and earthy Brettanomyces dominates, along with some orange peel, light grain, and floral hops. So nice, and the Brett has aged perfectly. Taste is similarly Brett-heavy, with more red wine, oak, vanilla, and earthy funk. Mouthfeel is crisp and dry, with a medium body and solid carbonation. Excellent beer from Westbrook, love seeing things like this make it out of the barrel room!

Poured from the bottle into a tasting snifter.

The beer pours a cloudy reddish amber color with a layer of off white head that fades away rather quickly. The nose is full of funky brett with a mild wine note. The taste is quite funky and full of brett, but this beer is hardly sour at all. I'm getting some wine and lots of oak. The finish is really dry. I really enjoyed the oaky notes and thought the wine was a nice touch.
