Notes:

Early impressions is that the aroma still has that Brett Trois pineapple citrus/tropical aroma however the tropical note is less when mixed with the WLP002, almost has a slight funk to it. Thin body, finishes a little lackluster maybe almost tastes water-downed slightly. Finishes dry with a medium high bitterness. Not getting much hop flavor. Very thin layer of head barely trying to stick around. Has kind of a lemony dessert thing going on that’s slightly wet wash cloth too. Sounds weird because it is kinda weird. Does Brett strip away some of the hop flavor, or at least hide it? Starting to think so.

Clarity is much better than the 100% Brett beers I’ve done, WLP002 must help  in that. I don’t get much malt in the aftertaste at all, I can usually get a little grainy cracker taste in the aftertaste, but not so with this, maybe it’s the Brett.
