Wild Wild Brett Green is an Empirically Hoppy Brettanomyces Ale. Fermented entirely with Brettanomyces yeast and over 3lbs of hops per barrel of beer. Green pours a golden hue delivering fruity and citrusy aromas from the use of Galaxy hops, while the Brettanomyces yeast add their own tropical fruit and funky undertones to the finish.

Poured in to a tulip. Frothy, dense, white head. Clear, golden colored body. 1.5 finger head.

Aroma was full of Brett. Lots of barnyard funk, slight leather, Citrusy hops. Malty and a bit bready.

Taste was excellent. Big citrus and floral hop flavor upfront. Bready and a bit malty. Finished with a floral hop bitterness and solid notes of brett. Leathery and funky.

Medium/light body, high carbonation and a crisp/dry finish.

Solid beer. Hops really come through but the brett adds a great complexity.

A - Hazy golden-orange with a big finger of off-white head. Fades fairly slowly.

S - Sweet grainy and wheat malts, grapefruit, tropical, pine, floral, and grassy hops, funky brett, tart green fruits.

T - Sweet grainy and wheat malts, grapefruit, orange, citrus, pine, grassy, and floral hops, some smooth bitterness, tart green fruits, funky Brett.

M - Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Smooth with a funky, tart, and lightly bitter finish.

D - Interesting wild ale. I like the balance of funk and hop character.

Bottle 789/1368

A - Pours a cloudy lighter orange with a huge cream-colored head. This gusher has some good retention once it settles down.

S - Brett and hoppy grass, pine and citrus. Smells heavenly.

T - Brett, buttery wood, earthy and slightly herbal.

D - Tons of carbonation with a light body.

O - Hopped up and tons of Brett. Tastes wasn't quite what it once was or what the nose suggests, but the Brett is rockin.
