Bottle share. Overly yeasty, in your face Brett, dominates aroma and taste. Light pale golden body, sharp, sour, tangy behind the yeast. Not for the timid.

On tap at Beertemple. Clear pale yellow with a thin white head. Smells like gooseberries, white grapes, white wine and macerated fruit. The taste follows the same notes, lightly sour as well as hoppy bitter, with additional notes of tropical fruit and citrus. Light bodied, soft carbonation and a lightly sour and hoppy aftertaste,

Aroma is intense sourness and underling mild sweetness and earthiness. The flavor is tropical fruit, fruit/sour fruit, malts and a mix of tart and earthy in the finish.

Thanks Tammy!

Light yellow hazy body with a white cap. Aromas of grassy hops, oak, celery, maybe some white wine. Funky. Tangy sour melon. Delicious.

Pours a mildly cloudy light golden color with a nice thick off white head. Smells of pineapple, lactic acid, and mildly grassy. Some nice lemon notes too. Taste is full of tropical fruits with pineapple again being very prominent. A touch of tannic like chalkiness in the mouthfeel. Fairly low level carbonation, but maybe the brett hasn't had a chance to chew through everything. It isn't overly acidic, but certainly carries some tartness. Fairly dry finish and thin mouthfeel. Lingering lemon flavor.

Overall very enjoyable. I'd like some additional rustic character to add some complexity, but its possible this bottle is still young and the brett hasn't had the time necessary to develop those characteristics. It's reminiscent of the recent Allagash release, Little Brett. Far more acidity in this one, but the acid isn't over the top. Very good beer overall.
