Beer review from BA Mag Aug 2007.

This wild ale was fermented with two yeast strains, one being Brettanomyces, which is where the "wild" comes in. If you've never tried a beer fermented with Brett, you're in for a treat.

Big, bubbly, billowy white head drops down to a sticky lace. Crystal-clear dusty golden color shines in the light. Big juicy nose with aromas of basement, citric peel, earth and medicinal herb aromas. Semi-brash yet refreshing crispness, moderate body with a dry palate. The Brett has a lot of work to do here, and it leaves a bit of a mess--but a good mess, with a rosewater-esque solvent alcohol and faint tropical fruit from the esters. Biscuity malt flavor is very dry and quickly shadowed by a medicinal flavor that cleans house with mineral, woody and harsh herbal flavors. Vanilla? Obviously dry finish--bone-dry at that.

Though we said you'll be in for a treat if you never tried a Brett beer, it's more of a love-it-or-hate-it characteristic. For us, we love it as it pushes the envelope of where beer can go. So any beer geeks out there who like Brett, you'll love this one.
