750 ml bottle picked up at the Piggly Wiggly in Homewood, AL. Served up in a tulip.

A: Pours up a very vibrant copper colored body. By vibrant, I mean this beer kind of glows while sitting there on the table. The body is clear with a very active, stream of carbonation streaming up the center of the beer. The pour got me about a finger of foamy, white head. Doesn't last long though and no lace to speak of.

S: Just a huge dose of Brett. I am just blatantly and all consuming Brett. Plenty of barnyard and some light funk. Light fruity, citrus note, maybe orange peel. Little bit of apple skin and pear meat. A little acidic on the back end.

T: Starts off with that punch of Brett. Dirty, funky, barnyard melds into the fruits. Pear, apple, a little squirt of citrus. Very yeasty, comes back with a light breadiness, brings a touch of sweetness as well. Tartness in this beer is very mild, just a little bit from fruit notes. Finishes up with a little white pepper spicy quality and notes of herbs.

M: Medium bodied. Carbonation starts off very aggressive, but dies off quickly. Never seen a beer go still so quickly. Acidic, lightly tart and sweet on the palate. Dries out pretty nice with just a light sting on the back of the throat. That sting warms up with the ABV and just radiates throughout. Aftertaste is just some mild fruity tartness and a little funk.

OA: Not bad. Lays in the barnyard arena more than a tart one. Still has plenty of flavor and a nice nose. Lacks a bit in the feel with the carbonation wierdness. All in all, I would drink again. Drinkability holds up well and doesn't bore the palate at all. I dig it.

Price: $14.99 Served In: Tulip
