On-tap @ the source.

A: Pours a slightly hazed pale yellow with a big-bubbled 1/4-inch thick head which leaves splotches of lace.

N: Floral and citrusy with some funky brett.

T: Mild bretty, floral, mild wheat notes.

M: Semi-moderate body and semi-medium carbonation. Semi-dry finish.

O: Good, but not quite the funk I was expecting.

Misleading name, decidedly lacking in funk. It's not an off-putting beer by any stretch, offering some sweet/tart apple notes, but its dearth of funkiness keeps it mostly forgettable, as does a watery body, lack of any sort of yeast intrigue/character, etc.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a FW Snifter.

L- Hazy, yellow/orange...lots of bubbles here. Small head that never fades due to the ever-forming bubbles.

S- I get a sweaty, fruity kind of thing right off....maybe a sweet tropical kind of fruit. Nice funk. Maybe a little pepper. I really enjoy the aroma.

T- Follows the nose with a little clove.

F- Quite prickly. Very carbonated...be careful with this or it'll explode. Going to take my time and enjoy this one all evening.

On tap.

A clear light orange with a thin, off white head. The nose is solid. Bright, rustic Brett character, mildly sulfury , mildly pineapple like, honey, clove, pepper. Yum. The palate opens with a mild fruitiness, hay, clove, earth, pepper, light must, Brett, clove and pineapple. Light in body with crisp carbonation, this beer is great. Nice texture, especially as it warms up.
