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.

I have a feeling this would have been far more interesting when fresh.

Very, very delicate - it's almost like a pilsner with brett. Gentle fruit and funk melds with crackery malt and noble hops. I'm a bit disappointed in the lack of wine barrel notes. Not terribly sour, either, but a nice table beer.

3.3/5: Katy's a good dinner guest
