22oz. bottle poured into a tulip.

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow with a magnificent, meringue-like head of 2 fingers that recedes slowly, leaving a craggy lace.

S: Citrus, coriander, sour, and funk. Peppery. A hint of vanilla and oak. There is some wood and barn and light pineapple from the brett.

T: Bitter. Spicy. Finishes like a chardonnay. It's oaky and slippery with some savory vanilla. The malt character is light. Fermentation is spicy and funky. There is an intense bitterness.

M: It's smooth, with some unenthusiastic carbonation. Slightly drying.

O: This beers struts some impressive plumage but ultimately falls flat. I may have to get used to this style and then give it another try.

Poured from a corked and caged bottle into a Duvel tulip

A- pours a cloudy shade of yellow with a robust three finger white head. Looks pretty nice, lots of carbonation

S- a lot of lemony funk comes through...not too much farmhouse, not too hoppy

T- lemony tartness floods my mouth, with a little bit of funk from the Brett. Eh, I expected more funk to be honest

M- medium bodied

O- I honestly expected more. I was looking for an experience like Bitter Monk, and got a slightly tart white IPA. Disappointing overall, especially at $20/bottle
