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.

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

Pours a golden amber, slightly hazy, with a two inch head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells incredibly distinctively Brett-y. Chalky citrus, barnyard, sweaty funk, and hay.

This is essentially a vehicle for what Brett can do for a beer, the yeast completely and utterly dominates. It's sweaty, dirty, and funky, but in the best way. I get a nice chalky, citrusy, sweet tart like flavor, and a bit of hay and grass, that might be from hops, or just might be also from the yeast. It's not sour, really at all, but it's got a nice juicy tartness that I quite enjoy.

This is medium bodied, with a tart and crisp mouthfeel, fairly juicy. It's very drinkable, despite the interesting and out-there flavors from the Brett.

I think I like Midnight Brett a little better, but this is still quite tasty.

Pour is golden amber, transparent, with a moderate amount of tight white head with a small amount of retention and some lacing left behind. Nose is heavily bretted, light notes of oak, hints of sulfur, apricot and white grapes. Taste is far sweeter, loads of white grapes, a bit sugary, faint oak, light bitterness through the finish. Really delicate feel, lighter carbonation, dry finish.

375ml bottle: This one pours a crystal clear darker golden color. There was a very small white head on it. The nose is good. Somewhat fruity but definitely sour. Some oak notes also. The taste is very good. Just a bit tart. Citrus, some breadiness, A dry finish. This is really nice.
