Batch E!047

I've had this a number of times and each batch is a little different. Pour is a hazy gold though it gets much more hazy as you get towards the bottom of the bottle. This beer has the characteristics of a brett fermented beer and it has developed nicely at approximately 9 mo to 1 yr of age. It has a bright yeasty fruitiness (apple and white grape with a touch of citrus) with some white pepper and a touch of tartness. There is a barnyard funkiness that keeps things interesting. There is a bit of sweetness and alcohol presence that moderates some of the refreshing aspects. Pleasantly effervescent. Overall, an enjoyable and nicely executed beer with brett yeast that develops with a little bit of age.

Massive rocky white head that seems to linger for a dog's age. Pale straw body

Scent is damp hay, vinegar, lemon, and pine tar.

Taste is sour lemon and pale grains. Big Brett. Finishes very dry and a bit astringent.

Highly carbonated and very lively on the tongue.

For an $11 bomber there's not too much to be dissappointed over.
Though it lacks a bit of depth, it's very enjoyable and I'd certainly pick one up again.
