Thanks to rudzud

Big fluffy fizzy head fades semi slowly, soapy lacing, darker hazy apple juice iced tea tan color

Nose weird earthy funk cheesy funk, apple cider vinegar, earthy cheesy foot, nutmeg apple cinnamon and potpourri spice thing, musty chemical acetone glue, unhappy Brett with too much oxygen, big toasted oak.

Taste more Brett funk, super cheesy funk, gym sock funk and fruity esters, pretty fruity, pear, apple cider vinegar, acidic funk, tangy, fairly tart, bitter spices like wormwood and bitter spice, floral, sticky flemmy finish, little toasted oak, a little unhappy funky Brett.

Mouth is med bod, tons of carbonation

Overall eh, it has the base of could be great beer, nice oak, but that weird unhappy Brett off flavor

Copper to light amber in color with a hazy complexion. There's a fingernail of beige to dishwater white on top. Moderate lacing. Aromas are of lemon, lime, blackberries, and oak. I'm tasting lots of woodsy oak, lime, blackberries, and Brettanomyces. The mouth offers a cooling sensation and is otherwise highly carbonated and crisp.
