Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Wild Wild Brett Yellow is fermented entirely with Brettanomyces yeast and was inspired by the savory sweet combinations found in Southern Indian cuisine by incorporating turmeric, mango coriander and spices. Yellow pours a golden hue delivering tropical fruit aromas with earthy citrus flavors and a dry tart finish.

Thanks to my buddy Ben for this bottle! #1449/1488

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow similar to most DIPA's, very thin head and moderate lacing.

S: Yum. Lots of citrus and tart underscored by brett throughout.

T: Fantastic. A great citrus sour, the brett is so subtle, which is great. Sometimes it can be overpowering. Other flavors of orange zest and lemongrass. Delicious.

MF/D: So easy to drink, not overly carbonated so goes down very smooth. Wish I had another bottle... or the Red, Orange, or Green...

seven-fifty from the Liquor Mart, Boulder

a: served in a westmalle chalice, deep golden yellow, opaque with yeast, healthy white head

s: pilsner malt and wheat body with a big yeasty compliment and dense with phenolic tumeric aromas, a heady dose of yeasty output and a moderate brett twinge - less big funk and more restrained wildness, hints of old oak, hops of papery grass, some touches of lemon

m: lively bodied, showing a medium-full carbonation and light, crisp mouthfeel

t: clean pilsner malt with touches of sweet wheat malt, phenols from the tumeric again blend with yeasty spice, yeast flavors with a light wild tartness, lemon, grassy hops, cleanly finishing

o: a decent experiment, the phenols are a little overpowering and don’t totally do it for me, but this one was enjoyable as a one-time purchase

Pours a bright medium yellow gold. Surprisingly, it's quite clear. The head is medium-sized and white, dissipates pretty quickly leaving little to no lacing. Lots of Indian spice. Good dose of turmeric, coriander and other spices that I mostly associate with curry. There's also some lime and tropical fruit in the mix. Less funk than red but more depth overall. The taste has more of the citrus and pineapple but there's still a spice edge. Turmeric pineapple finish. Medium to light tartness. Light on the palate with fizzy carbonation. Interesting beer. Lots more citrus than expected. I wonder if they threw in some kaffir lime leaves or something.

Number three at the ROYGBIV event on Sunday.

Absolutely awesome. Can I say that again? Awesome!

Appears like a blend of County Time lemonade and quality Italian lemoncello. Rich, bright yellow colors, balanced with pure white bubbles that seemed to appear for the duration of consumption.

Aroma. Can I lie? If it means more people will not trade for it and I can have it then I will. If this was a candle, I would have it lit 24-7. Tropical fruit meets spicy coriander meets sour. A+

Taste was devine. The mango really shown through, although to be honest the flavor my entire group got was lemon. Pungent sour. Spices were nicely balanced. Devine.

This beer was beautiful. AND my fiancé, who hates beer, tried this one, and said "I would definitely drink that." ISO :)
