Thanks to rudzud

Nice foamy fizzy bubbly 1 finger head fades at a med pace, decent lacing, honey copper with amber rose hue

Nose mild funk, little sour perhaps bacteria funk, Brett sour funk, big fruity, generic fruit with a little berry and apple tree fruit, a little musty grape, jammy fruit musty funk, little wine barrel vinous and oak.

Taste brings little acidity, bacteria sour funk, little Brett funk, tangy fruits, into musty vinous grape skin and wine barrel, little oak notes, genetic sour fruit, little sour apple pear like, nice funky sour blond in general. Finish is sour funk, tangy acidic little flemmy, little fruity tree fruit.

Mouth is med bod, little tangy nice acidity, nice carb.

Overall pretty nice, good sour beer, decent fruit, nice acidity and carb, tasty.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep orange. Medium white head.

Smell - Musty brett. White wine. Some toasty malt.

Taste - White wine is stronger here. Buttery and a bit of vinegar up front. Brett is strong, too. Toasty malt.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Moderate sourness.

Overall - Good, but doesn't blow me away like I expected from the reviews.
