Notes: After blending 2017's Peche 'n Brett, we refilled a couple of oak casks that had contained the fruit with a saison fermented with our house brettanomyces. After 15 months of conditioning, they were blended into Funk Soul Bretta, a funky brett beer with a surprising amount of peach aroma.
Blended for Imperial Bottle Shop & Taproom's (Portland, OR) 5th Anniversary.

an extra aged version of their brett saison, held in barrels that previously housed their world class peche and brett, so there is a little bit of peach on this, way more oak than the normal seizoen bretta, new oaky too, white wine and vanilla to it in nose and taste, brilliant with the most subtle peach essence. floral too, elderflower, dry low alpha hops, and orange blossom honey to me, although this isnt very sweet at all. the brett seems incredibly well developed, and as mature as it is, it doesnt overtake the base saison, which still has a lot of white wheat character to it and seems earthy and simple, albeit fairly large. the booziness here seems wrapped up with the oak, and this has more body than i remember from the original, but at the same time, its also really effervescent and it pops on the palate, pushing green grape, pear, belgian spice, and peach right through the roof of my mouth, just awesome. its cool the subtle peach in here and how it comes through even in such a woody, dense, and mature brew. there is an awesome bretty wildness to this, notes of apricot jam, marmalade, and pear skins, its awesome, and it fits so perfectly with all else that is happening here. a light acidity rounds it out with the oak and the tannins. i keep saying how much i love these guys, but every beer i have from them reaffirms it over and over again. man, they are at the top of the heap right now!
