Poured into a wine glass.

Appearance: head foams up 1 finger very quickly with enormous bubbles that fades to nothing in seconds. Beer appears flat thereafter. The color is a beautiful, hazy golden with some haze. Very pretty.

Aroma: funk and sour, which reminds me of an oaky chardonnay. The funk aroma smells like Elmers glue. The aroma is fruit, but does not reveal what fruit specifically. Very light oak.

Flavor: the Elmers Brett is at the forefront of flavor. The tartness hits upfront but lasts throughout, fading in the end. Flavor consists entirely of tartness, Brett funk, wood and subtle peach. No hop flavors. The Brett is between clean and barnyard funk.

Mouthfeel: upon each sip, the carbonation releasesimmediately, inflating your mouth - like combining pop rocks and soda. The body is medium-light.

Overall: this is an enjoyable beer. The carbonation detracts from the mouthfeel, and the fruit flavors should be increased or omitted altoghether. At $12.99 / 500ml bottle there are better beers available at that price. This beer was good but not fantastic. I would try/buy other Paradox beers before I bought this beer again.
