  • Initial pour has a half a glass of pristine, white foam while the liquid is cloudy. Retention is a bit quick for the size. Lacing is thick, sheeting, but seems to seek back to level.

    Aroma has the expected brett with wheat, lemon, and some sweetness that fights the tartness, which is light, surprisingly.

    Taste is much more mellow than expected in terms of the tartness that ensues. It is there but not overwhelming. Lemon, wheat, and brett round out the taste.

    Light body with quite a bit of carbonation. Dries the palate a bit.

    When I read that this beer was 100% brett I was wondering how much enamel would be removed. It wasn't. The beer is much more balanced for a wild ale than expected. Easy drinking and somewhat crisp. Enjoy!
