Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Jason on 01-09-2013

Midnight Brett is chocolate brown in color, brewed with 2-Row, Midnight wheat, raw wheat and rye malt. It was hopped with a blend of Perle, Glacier and Simcoe hops. The beer was fermented with our house strain of Brettanomyces in stainless tanks. The finished beer has the aroma and flavor of fresh berries, sour cherries and a slight roasted character. The finish is pleasantly tart and fruity making this beer very drinkable.

This beer smells like...victory. And it tastes great too, first taste to swallow and finish. Great brew.

12.7 ounce bottle poured into a wine glass.

I'm back with another review so I'm basically just keeping it short and to the point! This brew pours outstanding, nice dark brown murky body. There's light golden brown hues that shines, like a halo around the glass. Nice thick off white creamy head just resting gloriously on top the brew's body. Yeah, she's a looker! Like a rugged peasant girl that's a farmer by trade and gets dirty behind the shades!

The aroma is also just as outstanding! Depth of tart dark fruits (like a melange of rotten cherries and green apples) and rustic grains. Some stomach bile adding some funky complexity. Pretty pleasant and enjoyable.

Here comes the flavor! Yeah.. It's got some tart fruity notes (slightly sour cherries) with some dry cocoa that has a hint of sweetness behind it. Some Brett funk and hints of bubblegum. This finishes dry with slight acidity, lingering bubblegum and cherry pit in the aftertaste. The feel is medium-light body, vigorous carbonation.

Overall: There's not really enough going on with this brew to make it my favorite, yet the aroma makes this one to seek out. I will not buy this again for the flavor isn't really impacting me enough to seek it out. Not bad, not great yet it's dead in the flavor for me.
