12.7 oz bottle. Pours clear golden orange with a fizzy white head that completely disappears.

The aroma is acidic brett with some tropical fruit.

The flavor is sweet tart and sour fruits with earthy brett. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, tastes great, but a little under-carbonated.

A - Light murky apricot, low head, some cling.

S - Barnyard, funky, malt takes a back seat but inviting.

T - Astringent, funky, harsh, tart, nice.

M - Good carb, sweeter than thought, nice balance.

O - I would have a few of these without tiring. Nice offering.

Recent bottle sharing @ perennial w00t, thanks for sharing guys

Cloudy hay yellow with no head or lacing. The nose is potently sour with great lemon-head and grain sweetness in the background. The taste is just as ruthlessly sour with sour, tart, lemons and a hint of wood. It's light bodied, modestly effervescent, and has a hint of grain and oak peaking through in the finish, very dry. Absolutely delicious beer, I'll have to try the regular version next!

Recently stumbled across my notes from The Festival 2012. Lets do this!

A - Poured a crystal clear light orange with a very, very thin head that fades relatively quickly.

S - Aromas are very funky, nice lemons, faint floral notes, nice barrel as well.

T - Taste is solid, tart crisp lemons, tons of oak, solid eathiness.

M - Mouthfeel was lightly carbonated, quite dry on the finish.

O - Overall a solid beer. Fair amount of brett in this one. Was pleasant.
