Poured on tap at the Shaw brew pub into a wine stem glass.

Deep golden yellow, almost light lemon body color with a slightly opaque appearance. Creamy and very bright white one finger head presented.

Aroma is a mix of very sharp brett primarily. Hints of sucrose and some faint sugars but a good peppery funk mixing in that dominates the nose.

Palate is pretty basic but brett forward giving it some distinct power. Mid palate hits with light malts and a chewy simple body. Clean finish and not too dry either, but also very brett dominant and not unexpected. Good moderate funk, almost hits with an herbal hop angle on the aftertaste.

A good solid funked up Belgian Pale Ale basically.

@ RP Brookland

Clear yellow color with a small, creamy head that settles to a thin covering on the surface. Funky aromas of wet burlap and flowery funk...wood, passion fruit, and light peppercorn. Flavors of funky Brett, light citrus, peppery grass, melon, and a woody dryness. Light and crisp. Pretty good.

hazy pale golden color with minimal head
smell is funky citrus, starts out with strong lemon flavor with lots of tang, and finishes with bitter grapefruit.
feels light with moderate-to-heavy carbonation.
overall, was good on a warm day and a ton of flavor for something so sessionable (is it really only 4.4%?)
