Notes:

Descriptors: pineapple, tang, pine, light berry, peach

Cloudy coming out of the keg, really pale yellow in color. More body would be nice. As it warms I can start to distinguish the hops from the Brett, but it’s a challenge.

Still cloudy after a month in the keg, Brett doesn’t seem to want to fall out of suspension. Absolutely great head retention, sticking to the glass with tight white bubbles. The Brett pineapple smell really comes through quite a bit, it’s kind of a tangy acidic smell/taste.  Too bitter, lower the IBUs, seems like the Brett is exaggerating the bitterness. Damn good beer. Gulp.
