Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

A: pours dark brown to black with a tan head with excellent retention. Amazing looking beer.

S: that's where the amazing ends, except that it smells amazingly average. Dark malts come through a bit, but it mostly smells like smarties.

T: it's bad. This tastes like a campfire and sweet tarts. Sour along with some dark malts come through a bit, giving this beer slight redeeming taste.

M: way too frothy for a wild ale. Feels like a Guiness on nitro.

O: terrible experience overall. I had to use a Sam Adams Rebel IPA as a chaser to finish this. To sum it up: this tastes like a Smarties factory caught on fire while the brewery next door was coolshipping a beer.
