Pours with more foam than you can shake a stick at; like most JP beers. Clear. Frothy as it recedes which seems to take forever. Web-like, sticky, and thick lacing starts immediately.
Aroma is tart, brett, and spicy. Floral is a minor side bar, fruit, and malt.
Taste is definitely different. The sourness/tartness from the aroma is almost a non-player in the taste. Lots of funky fruits and floral flavors.
Medium body with a heaping helping of carbonation.
One of the most drinkable brett beers that I have had. The complexities of this beer are outstanding. Crazy ingredients yet the beer is drinkable. Smooth in spite of everything going on. Balanced. Enjoy!
Aroma/Look: Brets funky, fresh. Merange like foam. Beautiful deep amber red color.
1st Taste: Surprise, very low sour taste. Refreshing and carbonated. For all the rose ingredants, it floral but not weird in any way.
Overall: Likeable and down to earth. By the labeling I thought I was in for some deep european experience that I was totally unprepared for. And instead, I found a great tasting brew that would taste really great any time, but esp on a hot summer day. But the more I drank, the more I realize there lurked an underlying complexity. Very well blended taste and textures. Forget the highlife, this is the champaign of bottle beer.
