BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Trinity Brewing Company
Colorado, United States | website

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.10%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Heavy in Roast, Chocolate, and Special B malts this beer comes off with a unique and unexpectedly dry profile. Combining two Brettas lends a milder barnyard, but heavily funky character accented by an apparent 'natural cork' flavor. Aging the beer on French oak Barrels and allowing it to properly develop, attenuation is high revealing a light body and notes of astringency. Balance is created by the addition of three special golden ingredients: Honey, Golden Raisins, and Mustard Seed.

750 ml bottle, bottle 1/13 1337, barrel TBB 1-6. Pours dark amber brown with a very thin fizzy head that quickly almost completely disappears, other than a little constant bubbling from the bottom of the glass.

The aroma is some sweet caramel, tart acidic fruit and funk with a little butyric acid.

The flavor is sweet sugary malts with tart sour fruit and a little funk. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with very low carbonation.

Overall, great name but a not so great sour.

A- Dark brown body that borders on black. Sticky pale white lace on the edges of the glass. 4.25

S- Tart, earthy, acidic, thick malt aroma. Oud bruin maybe? Something salty in that aroma. 4

T- Starts off very much like an oud bruin, dark roasted malt meets tartness. The beer takes a whole new approach on the finish with a lemony flavor. Brown sugar emerges and offsets the tartness and acidity. 4

M- It's sour as hell when it's not tart. Woosa. Not an easy-drinker by any means but it can be slowly enjoyed. 3.5

Pours a murky chestnut with a thin tan head. Trace amounts of lacing & head retention

S: Sourness, wine barrel ( Chardonnay?). Horse blanket

T: Red wine, oakyness, sourness & dryness up front. Grape juice sneaks in as this warms, a little black currant, & little vinegar, more oakyness. Finishes dry, acidic & with much red grape, faint hints of woody hops

MF: Medium bodied, near zero carbonation. Acidic & dry

Pretty interesting, not the best I've had, but in the neighborhood
