Original review from Aug 2015, popped a b1 with Dan in July 2020 and it was a disaster, absolute drain pour. I thought it was OK back in the day, so I'll stick with that score...

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep reddish brown. Big khaki head. Thick collar.

Smell - Brett is strong. Musty red wine. Intensely oaky.

Taste - Brett is again the strongest flavor. The red wine is as distinct as any red wine flavor I've had in a beer. Strong oak. Dry caramel and toasty malt. Very oaky finish.

Mouthfeel - Starts off crisp and the wine gets a little heavier. Well carbonated.

Overall - Good, but certainly isn't as inspired as other Side Project bottles.

Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy ruby hue with a good one finger off white head that fades to leave a light side lacing and a thin blanket.

S - Aromas of bright funky brett, good light red wine, faint hops, super pleasant fruit notes. Generic berry notes, good funky brett. Super aromatic and complex.

T - Taste is similar to the nose, awesome light raspberry note, good super funky brett, nice red wine notes, light barrel. Complex but a bit yeasty. Quite tasty. Super good.

M - Mouthfeel is very bright, clean, alcohol hidden well.

O - Overall this beer was delicious, great red wine notes, great acidic wine notes, good berries, delicious and aromatic.

Thanks to rudzud.

Pours a nice thick 1 finger semi fizzy foamy head that fades pretty slowly, nice lacing, semi clear and hazy ruby mahogany like color.

Nose big Brett funk, little sour, good vinous funk aromas, bright Brett and wine itself, light musty funk, light sour generic fruit and some berry like fruit maybe boisonberry like, mild aged hop with little musty note and faint fruity, light smooth reddish malt base.

Taste starts yeasty, Brett funk with a yeasty flavor unfortunately, but still good, and into tannic raspberry seed, straight up seed, with little blueberry flesh and green tannic berry. Then nice funk, Brett funk and sourness, generic sour fruit, little oaky note, with big vinous flavours, and even a red wine flavor and acidic bite. Mild bitterness with the tannic notes and some grassy slight citrus fruity hops in there. Finish dry sticky touch flemmy bit acidic and little tannic bitterness and plenty fruity with berry skin and seed, light hop note, more red wine too.

Mouth is med bod with plenty of carb, little wine acidity.

Overall pretty nice, nitpicking things that are off, but those are mild compared to how nice this is for a Brett wild saison in wine barrels.
