500mL bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 13.99. Released summer 2018. Served in a Wild Heaven snifter. Enjoyed 11/6/18.

Pours an attractive golden amber with a short, quickly dissipating cap of loose, near-white froth.

Aromas of grapes, white wine, Brett, stone fruit and some vague whiskey. Deep, funky and fruity.

The Brett is huge and right up front in the flavor. Fruit skins, farmy funk, wine soaked wood, macerated grapes, peach, some slight citrus, a little pineapple, toast, flower petals, mild earth and

Medium body with fairly flat carbonation. The finish is full of Brett, oak and funky grapes.

2 years in the making, Wild Heaven and Cigar City have created something truly unique. Southern Symphony is exactly that- a harmonious blend of Brett, wine and barrel. Don’t be fooled by the over-simplified description on the bottle. 3 base lagers with 3 different hop schedules, 3 different barrels (wine, gin & spirit), 2 different Georgia grapes (scuppernongs & muscadines) & 2 strains of Brettanomyces came together to make this one-of-a-kind, one-off brew. And I’m glad I got to try it.
