What the brewers say

"Farmhouse ale with honey."

What our panel thought

Aroma: "An interestingly funky aroma, with very fruity flavors emerging not typically associated with Brett; blueberry, strawberry, and light eucalyptus. Strong Brett-funk earthiness. Some lemon and orange sweetness with some honey-like sweetness on the back."

Flavor: "Ripe stone fruit, tropical, tangerine, and a bit of Brett. Very citrus-forward and tart (verging on sour) throughout, but the acidity is soft and not harsh or abrasive. Some strong lemon and unripe strawberry notes. Very dry and high carbonation. This beer is full of flavor."

Overall: "Very juicy citrus and tropical notes with a touch of funk. The acidity plays nicely into the juicy character. Even though the acidity level is high, it's not harsh. A wonderfully unique aroma that's coupled with a very complex and funky flavor. This beer is layered with complex flavors, but the flavors came together well. Balanced acidity, nice tartness, with some complexity in the fruit sweetness made this a really nice beer."
