Thanks to rudzud for another share.
Very nice fluffy foamy head with tons lacing, soapy foamy lacing, nice retention too, slight hazy orange red color.
Nose is lots of funky Brett, nice funk horse blanket, light tart fruit generic fruit and little sour rhubarb like, an earthy almost mushroomy. Little sweet candy malt.
Taste brings lots more Brett, funky horse blanket but not super funky just lots of Brett, bready malt and yeast character, light tart rhubarb but not a lot, little sweet candy malt. Light stone fruit and juicy fruity. Finish is semi sweet, little sticky, flemmy, mild Brett and funk.
Mouth is med bod with decent carb, little sticky.
Overall nice Brett, but not much else, little on the sweet side, not a really super funky beer either just some Brett characters, and really lacking on the rhubarb unfortunately.

Landed a bottle of this special rhubarb edition at Julio's. Split with JLindros.
A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a clear light copper hue with a thin white head and light lacing.
S - Aromas of brett upon brett upon brett. Light sweetness and malts but this is mostly brett.
T - Taste is just about all brett. Super light rhubarb tart notes but for the most part this is a glass of brett, it's pleasant but not really rhubarb beer, bitter finish. Vegetative.
M - Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, sharp.
O - Overall this was a bit underwhelming, well no, very underwhelming. Almost all brett and hardly any rhubarb.
