BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Commons Brewery
Oregon, United States
commonsbrewery.com

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Right out of primary fermentation this beer is decidedly an American Pale Ale, but as it enters secondary, a bridge to Belgium is built with a dose of Brettanomyces Bruxellensis. A 5 week maturation results in slightly dry, fruity beer with a hint of floral Brett character that will evolve over time.

Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of tart notes with solid dry Belgian style malt backbone and light dry hops notes are also noticeable. Taste is a complex mix of tart and funky yeasty notes with solid bready malt backbone with a long finale. Body is full with good carbonation. Easy drinking with quite a bit of complexity. Balance is also pretty good with not much acidity.

Hazy with long lasting fine white head, mild brett and subtle maltiness; very quaff-able. Great beer to share but I easily finished a 750 myself. My idea/l of an everyday/allday brett beer.

Its a decent beer. After getting a whiff of vinegar & tartness, the taste falls a bit short. I love the smell, but the taste doesn't stand up to what I was expecting from the small. Its a beautiful dark orange color.
