4.28/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Straight pour from a 22oz bottle to an oversized wineglass (HF stemware); no dating or freshness from what I could see, but this was purchased a bit over a month ago and from what I gather this beer is likely 6-9 months old, give or take. Maybe? Maybe. Not worried.

Appearance (4.5): Gushes like a motherfucker. Crazy eggshell foam fills the glass, showing amazing retention (it just will not die down, for crying out loud), covering a tangerine-orange body that is PERFECTLY hazy. As the head FINALLY recedes, it leaves wide, lazy splotches of lace all over the place. Crazy-ass head.

Smell (4.5): Juices like a motherfucker. Crazy pineapple sherbet and peppery funk, showing some moist earth and hay tones mixed in with everything for that rich, sweet earthiness and odd funk that people call “the barnyard.” Fresh basil, papaya, and candied oranges flesh out the sweet, fruity dimension: straight-up tropical-ass brett. Damn.

Taste (4.25): Funks like a motherfucker. Peppery funk with some medicinal phenols. Lemon flesh and rind show their faces, along with some old pineapple upside-down cake—you know when the fruit gets overripe and the cake is a little questionable, but you eat it anyway? Like that. There’s a good, peppery, funky twang on the finish . . . moderately bready: wheat bread toast attempts to fill out some of the body amidst all that funk.

Mouthfeel (3.75): An easy, dry feel, and almost tannic, with a drying funk. Modest carbonation characterizes the feel (guess there isn’t much left after all that gushing), with a lush foaming action and a modest tingle—pretty nice. It’s got a very good feel, but somewhat off-style.

Overall (4.25): A saison? Maybe. A brett beer? Most definitely. So, so bretty, and done ridiculously well: the aroma is FANTASTIC. I would definitely purchase this again—for the $10 pricetag, you’d be hard-pressed to find such a bretty beer done so tastefully. Overall, it’s relatively light on the saison characteristics (spice? hay? hops? just brett, huh? it’s entirely possible that they just got bulldozed by the tropical funk)—but as a brett story, this is great.

pours a cloudy golden straw with an annoyingly volcano-esque head that turns into pancake foam & hangs out after a few minutes. nose; wet hay & band-aidy brett. taste; dank hay, band-aid, pear, lemon rind, coriander, white pepper, & grassy hops. super carbonated & medium mouthfeel that's modified by the erupting co2 when it sits in your mouth. evil twin doesn't do subtle takes on a style, so the barnyard experience here is concentrated. pungent & punchy.
