A: Cloudy brownish-golden in color. Forms a moderate sized, fine-bubble, white head. Decent retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Aroma is fairly Brett dominant. Tropical fruit and pineapple are mixed with light notes funk and basement.

T: Starts with a light sweetness. Notes of fruit, mango, and pineapple. Then some zesty spice, sort of like lemon-pepper seasoning. Finishes with a mild metallic twang.

M: Medium bodied. Crisp. Mild bitterness. Medium carbonation. Light dryness on the finish.

O: A very nice beer with a pleasant and inviting Brett character.
