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.

Poured into my Shelton Brox. sampler at "The Festival."

This beer poured a clear golden color. The nose was slightly tart smelling, a little bit of funk detectable in the background. This is one mild wild ale. It was lightly tart with some definite residual sweetness and a super dry aftertaste. Another excellent of Allagash busting into the world of brett and will yeast.

2014 bottle poured cold. Cloudy gold with white spotty clouds. Smells of funked barnyard, peaches, dirt. Taste follows the nose with a phenomenal tart citrus and funkiness. The feel might be the best part with spot on rushing small bubble carb. Overall love allagash and I enjoy this one more than midnight Brett.

From 09/27/13 notes. Have had this one several times at different BA fests over the years, always liked it. Had on tap at Beer Authority in NYC, 14 oz pour served in a tulip.

a - Pours a somewhat murky, bright yellow color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of sugar and fruity pebbles, brett, earthy notes, oranges, citrus, floral hops, tropical fruits, and fruity malts. Awesome nose; tons of fruit and brett. I love it.

t - Tastes of toprical fruits, fruity malts, pineapples, sugar, brett, oranges, citrus hops, grapefruit, floral and earthy notes, and some toasted notes. Taste has more brett and orange than the nose and less tropical fruits. Very good, though I like the nose a bit better.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall I like this one a lot; it is sweet and fruity, but there is a lot of brett and tropical notes to it too that are great. Love this one, hoping they continue to make more of it.

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.
