Notes/Commercial Description:
Golden Brett is a dark golden colored beer, brewed with Victory, 2-Row and Red Wheat malt. It was lightly hopped with a blend of Northern Brewer and Simcoe hops. The beer started it's primary fermentation in a stainless tank and finished fermentation in a 800 gallon oak foudre. The finished beer has fruity nose and flavors of citrus, apricot and bread crust. The mild tartness of the beer gives way to a long, clean finish.

Golden, mostly clear beer. Head is bright white, nicely large at first, fading into a dense 1/4" ring with stringy lace all around. Aroma is softly sweet with a bit of lemon meringue, gummy bears, and fruity tartness. A little bark woodiness, berries, and bubble gum. Flavors are dry, musky, fruity, woody, and tart. Miscellaneous fruit and citrus rind. Great texture and fun to drink.

Poured a orangey, yellowish color that's almost seethru with one finger and lace patches. I pick up the citric hops but I really like picking up small notes of tropical, sweet fruit (mangos, pear, pineapple - it's akin to a light white wine). Taste and mouthfeel is more of the same as it's crisp, sharp, lively, the hops are alive but subdued and balanced and there is a good amount of sweetness to this beer. Not the most complex nor extreme beer of this style but it was an enjoyable beer that I'll have again.

On tap for Beachwood Sour Fest at Beachwood BBQ in Seal Beach, CA.

Pours a clear golden orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, tropical fruit, and Brett aromas. Taste is much the same with fruit and Brett flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of Brett bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with a great tropical fruit and Brett presence that comes through equally well in the aroma and flavor.
