Notes / Commercial Description:
Don't know what to call it besides a Brett Beer. This one gets aged for 3 months in oak barrels with Brettanomyces Lambicus, a cool yeast that gives this beer a wonderfully pretty aroma and flavor that everyone better like or else I'll look you up and teach you a lesson.

Lemon, lime, white grapes, white wine and oak. Maybe a hint of funk. Nice brightness to it. Wouldn't call it sour. Has a mild tartness. Short, slick finish. This is pretty good.

Pours golden. Lambic like aroma. Tastes like a vinous manchego. There's a nice cheesy, nuttiness to it. A white grape juice finish. Almost candy like in that grape character. It lacks depth though.

Clear, light straw color and bubbly with poor head retention. Fruity, citric, lemon aroma. Light, citrus flavor, finishes dry. Minimal hop character. Light body, watery. Bubbles dissipate quickly.
