Tart orange citrus and some Brett. Very tart. Belgian pale with Brett.

Pour is hazed golden amber with a thin tight white head. Nose is dusty and light cheese funk with a leathery brett, hints of mineral and salt, a faint plastic ester, and notes of lemon and tangerine but very light. Taste is much more fruit forward. The funk isn't near as present, still a fair bit of brett offering a leathery mineral and hint of salt. Fruity esters, juicy lemon, ripened tangerine and a faint touch of citrus. Nicely balanced beer, fairly bright and integrated. Lighter body, softer carbonation, and smooth.

Imperial pint sized can with labled on sticker that says it's 375ml. Batch 1. Fridge temp.

Appearance- Slightly cloudy amber with no real head.

Smell- Bretty citrus, light citric hops, floral and earthy, apple and pear and lemon. Light woody/vanilla notes too.

Taste- Spice up front with green grapes/apple tartness. Light vanilla, and earthy spice mix well with brett dryness.

Mouthfeel- Heavily carbed, nice smooth mouthfeel, lightly tart, pretty dry, ho hint of the 8% alcohol.

Overall- A nice take on a Brett Belgian pale. Similar to Orval (though more sour). Gotta love that huge can
