ACBF pour

A-Pours a hazy yellow color with a very thin ring of white fizz.

S-New Zealand hops are the first thing I pick up. I love NZ hops. The Brett is also very noticeable. I'm not picking up much actual kiwi.

T-Still missing out on the kiwi but the rest of the beer is rather pleasant. The uniqueness of the New Zealand hops is on full display; they're herbal and musty. The Brett is very strong, too. The Brett is herbal, fruity and slightly medicinal.

M-Medium bodied with a lingering aftertaste. Quenching. Nicely carbonated. Finishes dry.

O-They did a good job on this beer but the idea behind this beer still holds more potential.
