Buckeyeboy provided this at an impromptu summer tasting.. Thanks Jeremy. Pours a hazy light orange with a minimal white head and no real lacing.

Nose is bretty with plenty of background pale malt that sorta mutes things IMO.. a bit of a fruity estery note that combines with some minor sour element that reminds me of apricots.

Flavor pretty much mirrors the aroma... sweet/tart thing going on... is a bit muddy and seems soft and on dimensional despite the brett and fruity esters... not very well done given the good portfolio I have had from CS in the past.

Body is heavy for the style and even more so given the brett... Okay, but 3x geeks didn't jump to be the one to finish the bottle.

Thanks again Jeremy, but this was pretty flimsy.
