Tried on tap at Archive in Brisbane.
Pours a fairly clear, deep golden colour. Fine off-white head clings to the side of the glass in intricate lacing after its initial flurry. Body is fairly light and fluid. Looks pretty decent.
Nose is immediately rife with Brettanomyces, giving a classic gueuze-like plasticky sharpness. Brighter, fruitier acidity comes through too with rubbed lemon skin and pithy apricot making an appearance. The Brett takes a peppery tone as it warms as well, giving a spicy finish. It's very nice.
Taste lacks some true acidity, but there's plenty more of the funky Brett notes giving woody, vegetative, peppery characters, underpinned with some acetone sharpness. Slightly astringent on the back with some dry tannins coming through. It's complex, no doubting that.
Feel definitely harks from the astringency, with a tannic dryness giving the sensation of acidity without the flavour of acidity.
I would like more true sourness, but this forms a pretty interesting wild ale on its own in any case. I was extremely impressed to see this on tap at least.
Serving type: on-tap
