16 ounce can into tulip glass, canned on 3/27/2018. Pours fairly crystal clear deep golden amber color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, apricot, red apple, pineapple, mango, melon, papaya, berry, white grape, citrus zest, light pepper/pine, honey, biscuit, light caramel, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/light funky yeast, citrus/tropical hops, and moderate bready malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, apricot, red apple, pineapple, mango, melon, papaya, berry, white grape, citrus zest, light pepper/pine, honey, biscuit, light caramel, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate pine, citrus peel, herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness; and Brett tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, lemon, lime, peach, pear, apricot, red apple, pineapple, mango, melon, papaya, berry, white grape, citrus zest, light pepper/pine, honey, biscuit, light caramel, hay, straw, herbal, floral, grass, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/light funky yeast, citrus/tropical hops, and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/tartness balance; and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness/tartness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, fairly sticky, and slightly acidic balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol for 7%. Overall this is a very nice Brett IPA. All around nice complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky yeast, citrus/tropical hops, and moderate bready malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink with the mellowly tart/bitter/drying finish. Very well balanced between Brett and juicy hop complexity; nice malt backbone, but not overly sweet. A very enjoyable and well made offering.

Appearance - Pour cloudy orange with nice dense head. Spotty lacing around the glass.

Aroma - The aroma is pretty unique and more like a farmhouse ale than an IPA or sour. Getting a bit of funk along with some lemon and grassy/earthy aromas. There is also hints of grapefruit and slightly floral notes.

Taste - There is tartness just a touch, light floral flavors. There is more sourness in the taste than the aroma let's on but it is toward the front end with more of a light funk/hay on the finish.

Feel - Light side of medium actually pretty easy drinking almost light. soft carbonation.

Overall - I am pretty impressed with this beer, other than the aroma lending to farmhouse it hits the marks with light tartness and some orange grapefruit IPA qualities.

$ 5.50 / 15 oz snifter (Snifter is 16 oz but is always an oz short of filled). $ 0.367/oz at brewery. Served at bar reefer temperature.
Aroma – lightly floral.
Head – small when received, white, creamy, low density, short retention time, diminishing to a three to seven mm irregular ring and a thin layer with rocks.
Lacing – good. Thick partial rings of tiny bubbles.
Body – medium yellow, hazy.
Flavor – Slightly tart and very refreshing although a bit flowery. No malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl.
Palate – light, watery, lively carbonation.

A very pleasant example of a tart brew, one of the better that I’ve had.

Appearance 4, Aroma 4, Flavor 4, Palate 4, Overall 4.25.
