Another thanks to rudzud for sharing, batch 1.

No real head, somewhat hazy slight golden orange red color.

Nose is pretty nice, big fruity aroma, vinous musty grape and light wine, big Brett funk, barnyard and phenolic acidic sour sharp Brett, oxygenated Brett thing, nice plums juicy.

Taste brings big tart acidic funk, almost lambic like sour acidity, flemmy, nice plum, nice vinous wine flavours, musty skin, etc. Plenty of funky Brett, sour Brett and little barnyard funk. So tart and sour, juicy sour fruit, blends with phenols and big acetic acid, faint tannin there, late, like berry seed. Finish long tart sour fruit and flemmy, vinous, light buttery oak way on the back end.

Mouth is med to lighter bod, little flemmy, lighter carb, big acidity.

Overall pretty good, nice funk, nice sourness and tart fruity with light plum and vinous notes, wish the plum was a bit more.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Orange amber body. No real head. A few bubbles at the edges. Very faint surface wisps.

Smell - Oaky and winey. Lots of white wine. Acidic smelling. Some mustiness along with fruitiness.

Taste - Much more sour and very plummy. White wine is a little diminished. Plum in the aftertaste and some oak.

Mouthfeel - Pretty tart. Medium light body.

Overall - Very tasty. I could drink a lot of this.
