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.
