This was a hazy, bright golden color. It started foaming over as soon as I pried off the cap, so the pour was about half foam.

Lots of prickly Brett character in the nose; hay and cracked pepper with a touch of funk. Kind of a one dimensional Brett showcase on the palate as well. Heavy horse blanket, clove, and pepper all but overwhelmed the light pear flavor. I couldn't find any hop or wheat characteristics. The mouthfeel was light and airy while at the same time stinging the tongue in a a good way. I liked this well enough overall, but I'm glad I split this one.
