Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: bgramer on 09-28-2012

Our organic Oak Aged Bretta is made with our Seizoen Bretta that is aged for a period of time to develop the wood aged character in the beer. Oak Tannins, vanilla notes and subtle smoky spiciness soften and mellow this beer over time.

The aged unfiltered beer is refermented and carbonated in the bottle with select yeast strains to provide added dryness and complexity, then sealed with beeswax for additional aging. Store bottles upright in a cool dark place and enjoy for many years in a proper glass.

Shocked to see this in a store at the Portland airport while passing through. Enjoyed 28 June 2013.

Pours a fully clouded medium yellowish-orange amber. Two big fingers of whitish head, great retention and lacing. Fabulous.

Smell mixes all the elements I want from a saison. Earthy, floral, citrusy, spicy. The brett comes through powerful and musty, followed by light flower petals, with a citrusy burst in the background. Delightful.

Taste is solid saison with a twist. It's earthy and funky. But the dominant character is a deep citrusy, kinda grapefruity blast, acidic and a touch sour. It's hard to describe, as it's deep and vibrant, not sharp, but feels more like grapefruit rind than anything else. Nice, but I want better balance between these elements.

Feel is medium-bodied, with fluffy carbonation, expansive and mouth-filling. Lasting.

Definitely upper-level, but for me, not in the same realm as, say, Boulevard's Saison Brett (which is my benchmark brett saison). Good funk, but the citrus/acid/sour component brings it down.

Blind BIF Beer #4

We had a good idea that this was a Logsdon due to the bees wax. I have had the Oak Aged Bretta, Seizoen, and Seizoen Bretta recently, so I was determined to get this one right.

Huge frothy head. Familiar saison smell.

Nice golden red appearance.

Weak slightly old smell.

Smooth good initial taste but aftertaste is stalebreadish poor. This has a very slight oak taste, which I remembered from the Oak Aged Bretta, so that was my guess.

Reveal: Correct! (Thoughts: good I got one right, now I can stop thinking so hard).

Bottle # OAB 2013

Appearance. Pours a hazy copper-gold topped with two fingers of cream coloured head.

Smell. Nice funky brett, honey and sweet light malts, some citrus fruits and fresh oak, and maybe a bit of melon.

Taste. Tons of toasted oak, funky brett and orchard fruits, citrus fruit flesh, light peppery spice, low level of sourness, and a bit of sweet and smooth light malt. Very nice.

Mouthfeel. Medium body, medium+ carbonation.

Overall. Great stuff.
