This looked great, smelled great, the first sip was good, but as it warmed up I felt this just wasnt very drinkable.

Light but flavorful, fruity with a little must. Like a light trippel.

Pours an effervescent orange/amber with a thin sliver of cream colored head. Slightly above average head retention & lacing

S: Pears & faint barnyard, sweet grassyness

T: Breadyness, pears, dryness, brown sugar, a faint bit of barnyard up front. A bit of apple jam as this warms, more dryness, green melon as well, dryness & green appleskins as well. Finishes fruity, a little dry, & slightly funky, a little musty

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation

Drinks okay, was hoping for more, a bit too sweet for my liking

Appearance: hazy, golden/amber color, slight, but lasting white head.

Aroma: Ah! The brett hits at first sniff. Wild, funky, wicked yeast-y aromatics. Semi-sweet, fruity malt lurks beneath. Hops lay low

Taste: First comes the fruit, we got some apple and apricot, peach and minor cherry notes behind them. Next comes the fuzz and the funk, that twisted sour attack on the palate that brett brings. Medium bodied, long finish, hangs lightly and delightfully in the mouth. Not too sour, not too sweet, and not too fruity, not really too anything, at all. The only characteristic that looms over all the others is that tasty semi-sour flavor of the brett. And I do like it.

Soft, malty, a little bit sweet, a little bit sour, and just enough fruity. Tasty, tasty stuff.

Very light yet flavorful taste. It has a nice fruity aftertaste.

Very mediocre representation of this style. Kind of tastes like a watered down triple.
