Notes / Commercial Description:
Don't know what to call it besides a Brett Beer. This one gets aged for 3 months in oak barrels with Brettanomyces Lambicus, a cool yeast that gives this beer a wonderfully pretty aroma and flavor that everyone better like or else I'll look you up and teach you a lesson.

Opaque yellow pour with two finger white head. Nice aroma with lemon and citrus dominating. Taste is nice between the lemon and citrus fruit flavor but finishes with a nice brett pickup. Nice an light, quiet enjoyable on a hot humid day and easy to put down. Nice beer overall.

750ml bottle sealed with orange pressure cap.

poured into HF wine stem.

Appearance: this beer looks like berlinner weiss. Very light colored and pale yellow if you can call it yellow at all. Thick white cap that drops to no head.

Smell: wheat malt. fruity and lightly acidic. oaky and full on brett presence. Wine wine barrel influence is sensed in the aroma as well.

Taste: Nice light acidic bite. Fruity and very noticable brett funk presence. Chardonnay barrel presence is unmistakable. Bright clean acidic fresh tasting beer.

Mouthfeel: light body with low carbonation. The beer has a solid dryness that is really something good and actually makes that low carbonation become something that is off set. Very drinkable with that nice light acidic presence.

Overall: This is a great brett beer. Its one type of beer that I wish was made on a regular basis and was more widely available type of beer. This is my first 2nd shift beer. I would like to try more.

Pours golden. Lambic like aroma. Tastes like a vinous manchego. There's a nice cheesy, nuttiness to it. A white grape juice finish. Almost candy like in that grape character. It lacks depth though.
