This beer exceeded my expectations. I was expecting it to be good but I was blown away. Fresh 32oz. growler fill consumed on the same day it was poured. A great looking beer with its reddish hue. Smell had quite a bit of funk going on. Great carbonation. Taste was where this one really shined. Delicious Brett brown ale with easy to discern wine and barrel notes represented. I could have downed a few more glasses of this one if I had access to it locally.
