Flemish KissFlemish Kiss

Brewed by:
The Commons Brewery
Oregon, United States

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.

750mL bottle poured into a tulip. Thanks to Jason for the bottle!

(A)- Pours a hazy orange amber color. Produced a huge white fluffy head with great retention. Plenty of clumpy lacing too.

(S)- A super dry Brett funk meets lots of earthy hay/straw. It is really super dry with just the right amount of that earthy funk. Extremely subtle lemon/orange citrus.

(T)- I like the combination of a solid pale ale (light pine bitterness and citrus with mildly sweet malt base) meeting this bone dry, earthy hay/straw Brett funk on the finish.

(M)- A great carbonation level and balance. The Brett funk seems to almost hide any bitterness the base is putting off and replaces it with this awesome dry earthiness that feels and tastes so natural without and medicinal qualities.

(O)- A great idea that is completely successful in each way I look at it. I look forward to trying more from this brewery.
