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.

I like this way less than the regular bretta. The oak really heavies some if the delicacy of the base beer, and while it adds a sturdy maturity and another layer, it takes away the floral brightness of the Brett, neutralizes the lively carbonation, and clouds up the lightness of the whole thing. The brett is awesome, and the recipe rocks, but this beer doesn't need the oak. I liked the fresher younger brett profile, rather than the older one, which is equally funky but less dynamic. Still has an awesome grain base that contributes a lot of flavor and texture, but you have to find it through the musty oak, which feels like an unnecessary feature. Carbonation is way lower, and the beer seems less distinct to me. One of the few cases I've encountered where a beer is actually hurt by being aged on wood, but the base here is one of the best brett saisons in the game.

Served alongside the standard version. Thanks Darrell.

Hazy orange / yellow body with a small head that quickly diminishes to but a thin wisp. Aromas of oak, straw, hay, herbal scents. Remarkably similar to the standard version, though with a more pronounced tannic nature. Wood and subtle hints of tart fruit, finishing dry. Tasty.
