BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project
Colorado, United States
crookedstave.com

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.00%

Availability: Winter

Notes / Commercial Description:
Surreal spontaneous sour ale aged in oak barrels

Spontaneously fermented in oak barrels, L'Brett d'Or's fermentation is kicked off with the help of the natural wild yeasts and bacteria residing around our coolship and native to our brewery. Since our spontaneous beers can only be brewed during the winter months, individual releases involve blending unique barrels to bring out the best of each brewing season. Characterized by funky citrus aromas, a crisp acidic bite, and a complex finish, L'Brett d'Or will continue to age with the best of them, gaining in complexity over the years.

Poured from bottle into teku glass

A- Cloudy yellow/orange with white head and light glass lacing

S - Brett funk... Zesty aroma that's definitely sour. Hints of apple, oak, and other fruits

T - Sour is the first thing that comes to mind. Not over powering by any means. I'd describe it as more sour than funky. I pick up a lot of apple / lemon flavors. The funk does linger. Really well balanced

M - Light overall with medium carbonation. It finishes up with a dry / slightly funky finish

O- An almost near perfect beer. Great appearance and smell. Unique flavors. I really liked the use of Brett in this beer. I'd like to acquire some more of this!
