Batch 2 bottle, poured into a HF stem.

Pour: Hazy yellow orange, with a finger and a half of white creamy head. Head hangs around for a little while, and leaves some really thick sticky lacing. This is a really good looking beer.

Smell: Big fruitiness up front, characterized by grapefruits, lemons, and passionfruit. Lots of oak and a floral aspect. Hints of vanilla.

Taste: Big brett presence up front, and more tropical fruits: lemon, tangelo, and mango. Lots of oak and touches of creamy vanilla. A very floral aspect owns the middle of the palate, and carries into the dry finish. A touch of soap at the finish stops this beer from getting a very high score. The soapiness diminishes as it warms.

Mouthfeel: Pretty drinkable. No trace of alcohol, and very prickly carb. Similar to the taste, the touch of soap on the finish takes away from the drinkability.

Overall: I really enjoyed this beer contrary to prior ratings. If 7venth Sun could eliminate the soapiness that creeps in as this beer finishes, it would be fantastic. Like I said before, this disappears nearly completely in the second half of the glass

Thanks merc for sharing

The beer pours a cloudy light orange/amber with no head or lacing. The nose is a potent sweet tangerine citrus with a touch of funk. The taste carries that tangerine citrus well with a great sweetness and lingering bite. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, bretty, funky, citrusy, well carbonated and drinkable. This is a tasty beer with tremendous bretty/citrus character.
