Bottled 10/26/18, it pours cloudy peach color with a 2 finger thick off white head that was full of tiny bubbles, fading in average to fast time leaving minimal spotty lacing along with yeast residue along the glass. Smells of barnyard funk, peach, a musty basement, white wine, wet leather, grains, fruity notes and light peppery spices. Not that much oaky presence but the funky and sweet aspects work well together for a nice complex nose.

I like how the flavor starts off fruity with peaches, cherry and tart grapefruit but rapidly shifts to barnyard funk with the brett, yeast, peppery spices, wet grass and musty grapes bringing out balance and a variety of flavors. Accents of orange juice like a mimosa trail the first wave of earthy flavors and finish dry with a chalky feel. This body feels very thin and watery, especially considering how much particle residue is left on the glass, but overall it was an enjoyable brew.
