Thanks to jmgrub for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Bottled 11/2013.

Pours a murky orange with a foamy beige head that settles to a film on top of the beer. A foamy curtain of lace coats the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, earth, and Brett aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, earth, and Brett flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of Brett bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a nice earthy Brett presence all around.

750ml brown bottle.

Massive head from an expressive carbonation, muddled orange hue. Musty aroma with hints of quince paste, orange pith, wild herbs, and mild medicinal phenols. Sufficient crispness, dry maltiness throughout with in a moderate sized body. Yeasty with a musty likeness. Modest hopping. Dried tropical fruit with herbal phenols in tow. Dry peppery finish.

Not too shabby, was hoping for a more clear "drinkable" brew though the yeast seemed to be a bit dominant in some ways.
