750ml bottle served cold in a wine glass. No bottlin date.

Appearance: Orange with brown hints in the light. Fairly cloudy but that probably is chill haze. Small head that sank to a rim of foam.

Nose: tropical fruit, pineapple, funky nose from the Brett, slight rubber stopper smell. Funkier than I expected. Very nice.

Taste: fruity initially, sharp acidity and a decent sour flavor follows with a slightly bitter finish. Brett funk with tropical fruit and lemon.

Overall: great Brett ale. I want more. I think it could be funkier but I like that sort of thing. I was surprised by the sourness but this could also be aged a bit. It was in my cellar for a few months too.
