Notes/Commercial Description:
We took about 10 bbls of hot Pale Ale wort, hopped it with lots of Amarillo, whirlpooled it again, and knocked it out into a fermenter waiting with a special Belgian wild yeast, Brettanomyces Drie. Brettanomyces is a wild cousin of normal Saccharomyces ceravisiae, brewers yeast, and is found growing wild on fruit skins in the lambic region of Belgium.

Thanks Gale for bringing this all the way from the Nashville taproom!
Review from notes.

Murky opaque orange with a yellow halo around the edges where the light tries to get though. Color is very saturated and it looks almost like mango juice. Unfiltered with a ton of suspended yeast. Lots of lace that creates an irregular pattern of wavy drips around the inside of the glass, about a 1/2" of white foam.

Very minor Brett in the nose, not an especially funky strain, a little bit of musty hay and pineapple spice.

Honeyed malt flavor, peaches, lightly fruity, with some moderate herbal hop bitterness. Resiny bitter hop aftertaste that lingers. The yeast comes across as distinctively Belgian, but not as a funky Brett strain, more mellow and mild. Medium bodied, quenching in the 80º weather.
