If you are into the wild Belgian style Brett ales then this beer is for you. It pours a deep golden color with about an inch or so frothy head. The smell is funk tart with grape skin and dark fruit. Not so much on the barnyard side but it does have a nice leathery component. The flavor has a fruity apricot tartness along with some peppery nutmeg spice. A bit of the dark fruit aroma does carry into the flavor (fig??), which is a bit surprising for its golden hue. Not as crazy as many of its Belgian cousins but fun and more drinkable than some.
