Beer added by: Jason on 01-09-2013

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.

A: cloudy orange-yellow (or yellow-orange), with small bubbled carbonation that quickly gravitates to edges.

S: get some if the brett, but overall the smell is pseudo-Sprite like. As it warms a bit, the lemon scent strengthens.

T: the overall underlying/base taste is woody (oak?) in nature, upon which other flavors come and go. The initial tastes are again Sprite-reminiscent. I get some kiwi/unripe strawberry next in a transition towards where the wood tastes start to dominate.

M: good carbonation throughout, and a lengthy semi-dry feel that work for me.

O: I was hoping for a bit more bite from this beer. As with most Allagash, the beer is solidly made, but it doesn't make it to the wow stage for me.

A - This is a beautiful beer - poured slowly into my Tree House Brewing tulip. The color is dark golden orange. There is a massive amount of carbonation that produces a consistent head of tiny white bubbles. Head retention is excellent, and splotches of white lace cling to the glass.

S - Mostly a citric acid type smell. Also seems a bit floral. Low key aroma, but penetrating.

T - Follows the nose and description. It's a vaguely citric flavor, but difficult to pinpoint a single, or even variety of fruits. I don't taste the funkiness that others describe. Instead I get a mildly acidic tartness. Not a huge pucker factor, although this element grows a little as the beer warms.

M - On the light side in terms of body, with huge carbonation presence. The tingle from the carbonations works great in conjunction with the acidic nature of this beer. The finish is clean and mildly dry. While the finish is clean, it is lasting.

O - This was a treat, both in that it was an excellent beer and that the price was significantly higher than I've ever paid. Probably the most expensive beer I've ever purchased given the 375 mL bottle. I'm happy with this birthday present to myself, and continue to love Allagash beers.

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.
