Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our organic Oak Aged Bretta is made with our Seizoen Bretta that is aged for a period of time to develop the wood aged character in the beer. Oak Tannins, vanilla notes and subtle smoky spiciness soften and mellow this beer over time.

The aged unfiltered beer is refermented and carbonated in the bottle with select yeast strains to provide added dryness and complexity, then sealed with beeswax for additional aging. Store bottles upright in a cool dark place and enjoy for many years in a proper glass.

Orange cloudy appearance with significant white head that does not dedicate quickly. When opened, the bottle overflowed with about one forth of the bottle lost. Aroma is a sour fruit. Taste is also a sour fruit that is not that appealing.

Honey comb, hint of lemon, apple cider, white wine and Brett funk. Effervescent and super carbonated. Light bodied. Medium, slick finish. Not very dry. This is yummy.

A gusher out of the bottle, but ultimately settles into a rich gold with inviting foam head. Maintains a lacing down the side of the glass. Aroma is exceptional, with tropical notes (orange pulp, lime wedge), a subtle Belgian yeast spice (coriander) with piques of earthy Brett, and some very faint oak. Lots going on with taste profile, starts out with a citrus burst followed by some tannins & the yeast, which brings a nice tartness to it. Other notes include coriander, peppercorn, loam and vanilla bean. Lots going on, but it marries well and is smoothed by the aging, though the tannins are a bit too high key for me. Mouthfeel is a little heavy but dry with a mostly clean finish. Excellent beer, better than regular Bretta in my opinion.
