Sample poured from the infected keg, before it was taken up to EBF. Reviewed from notes. Thanks for helping me in my attempt to tick all things NEBCO, guys!

A: Clear chestnut brown body under a large, dense, persistent tan head. Great retention and lace. Great.

S: Aromatic Brett up front (good mix of tropical fruit and barnyard funk) with dark malts underneath. Plum, prune, cherry, and chocolate. Earthy minerality. Complex and great.

T: Fruitiness right away, rich malt in the middle, and a delicate balance of sweet-tart cherry and dry earthiness on the finish. Refined and excellent.

M: Smooth medium body with moderate, fine carbonation. A little spritzy, but ok.

O: I love what the base beer turned into with age, and the addition of some moderate Brett funk and dryness just added a couple interesting twists on a delightful Quad. I'd probably take the regular over the infected, but it would be close, and I'm really thankful I got to try this.
