Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: rudzud on 12-21-2013

Tiarna is a blend of two beers, one aged in oak and fermented with 100% brettanomyces and the other fermented in stainless with a blend of two belgian yeast strains. Both beers were brewed with a combination of 2 row and wheat malt in addition to specialty grains. It was hopped with Hallertau, Styrian Goldings and Cascade hops. The finished beer is dark golden in color with citrus, pineapple and bread in the aroma. The flavor of this tart beer has notes of grapefruit, lemon, and bread crust, and a long, dry finish.

Oak dominates the nose with a vanilla-like note complimented by juicy orange yeast esters. There is also a light Brett funk.

The is a tart sourness up front, at a medium level, after that the oak and yeast derived citrus back up the flavor. This is a dry beer with just a hint of malt sweetness mid-palate into a dry and slightly fruit finish.

A dry, moderately tart beer with a decent amount of oak character.

Pale yolk, filmy white foam. Slight funk, pineapple, young mango. So different. Good tart and malt, effervescent finish. Awesome

Very characteristic allagash wild. No flaws to speak of, but the house character doesn't really do it for me.
