Anyone know what's in this?

Propped from a bottle and smells/tastes delightful. Curious what critters inhabit this one.

I have never had it, but I bet you are tasting the brett. http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/13307/43080

I've had it and am a big fan. Pretty sure it's just brett. I got a very similar yeast character with a bug amber fermented with just wy brett b. That would be my starting point.

Totally. Was curious if anyone knew the specific cultures. Also, if its truly wild and has some lacto/pedio business going on in there somewhere.
