Intro: A 200ml pour on draft at Mikkeller Bangkok into a mini stemmed wine glass.
Appearance: A slightly hazy golden yellow colour with a two finger white head with decent retention and nice clingy lacing.
Aroma: Brett funkiness with a mix of tropical pineapple, mango and citrus lemon, grapefruit aromas.
Taste: Fruity much like the aroma with mango, pineapple, orange and grapefruit, whereas the brett here brings a tart and leathery element.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with high carbonation.
Overall: This was very nice and balanced and very easy to drink. If I could get my hands on some bottles, I would definitely pick up a few.
