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.

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.

Had on tap at The Sixgill and Urban Family.

A: A hazy orange with a slight golden hue. A nice off-white tan head on top, rather foamy with great retention and sticky lacing.

S: Lots of brett on the aroma, slightly funky and barnyardy. There is a good bit of oak coming through and a little bit of butter. There is some fruit as well, a bit of lemon and orange as well.

T: A bit nicer than the aroma, fruit flavors shine a bit stronger - some lemon, orange, and stone fruit. Lots of oak with a bit of vanilla and a slightly chalky flavor as well. A little bit of brett funk as well.

M: Medium bodied, rather smooth with a creaminess to it. A little dry and chalky though.

O: Very nice, a little oaky and dry. After having the un-oaked version, I find myself liking that one more as the fruit was a bit more forward, but this was still very good.

This one is a gusher. Pours a murky/hazy orange color with a large white head with a hint of orange. Scent is funky brett up front. Some grass and must. A good amount of citrus with some peppery spiciness. Tart green apples and just a tad bit of smoke. Some floral and oak notes as well. The nose really has a lot going on here. Taste is initially floral, but just a tad....which is good. Tart, brett-like flavors up front with a good amount of spicy yeast backbone. Some lovely oak and vanilla with just a hint of butter. Thought this one would be a little more sour, but it may develop more in the bottle. Finishes crisp with more pepper and lemon. Mouthfeel is dry and medium bodied. Drinkability is very high. Overall, this is a spectacular brew. Very drinkable and extremely tasty. Logsdon has done some great things so far.

750ml into a tulip. Pours a fully hazed dull orange butterscotch, egg cream colored head retains nicely, sheet lacing.

The aroma is a delight, tremendous complexity. Hints of sweaty dirt, tartness, bright clean citrus. reluctant to taint it with a sip

south pacific tropical fruits
sharp dry twang, pepper and spices
never more sour than tart
citrus
initial sips result in incessant lip smacking
a delicious moment in the evolution of the brett
not yet wild
Lively slightly less than medium mildly astringent mouthfeel
wonderful
cheers
