Poured into a tulip glass from a 750ml bottle.
Bottled: 11/2013

Pours a nice dark copper and hazy amber color with some nice orange hues. A gentle pour generates a giant 3 inch head (as expected). Nice medium dense to very dense bubbles stick together very well. Seems almost as tight to float the bottle cap on it.

Aroma starts off with nice Bretty funk notes. Yeastey esters bring in some slight phenols and some nice spice notes such as coriander and pepper. This is balanced out by a nice aromatic hop presence. There are some slight citrus notes of orange and even some tropical fruits (papaya, mango). Nice fruit sweetness is perceived in the nose as well. Strong ripe pear and some apple notes are present. Mild tartness is also perceived in the nose.

The flavor is pretty delicious. It starts off with nice yeasty phenols and spice; with notes of coriander and pepper and even some clove. Then there are some nice Brett funk notes that give the brew and earthy and musty horse blanket notes. The brew is pretty funky and dry. There are some nice grain notes and fruit juice sweetness notes. Together with those notes there is a slight tartness provided by the Brett as well. There are notes of nice citrus hops that compliment the tartness. The finish is nice and dry with some lingering bitterness. Quite nice. The mouthfeel is light-medium and quite effervescent. Overall this is a solid Brett beer. I will try and get more and see how they develop with age however this brew is delicious fresh.
