Oak Aged BrettaOak Aged Bretta
Notes: 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.

Poured from the BB 2020 dated, 750 ml bottle into the test glass.
A - Big pop, some gushing then settled down, kinetic carbonation, feeds a never ending cap of whipped egg white.
Clear and beautiful. Dark straw color, cant hide the Penn Station of carbonation activity
S - Muted Brett, Apricot. honeysuckle, lemongrass, with a hint of white pepper all in the mix.
T - All the aromatics, add sumer peach, lots of summer peach!! Outstanding fruit display
M - Crisp, medium in body, dances across the palate, quick shift from semi sweet to nearly tart. Barell treatment add softens to the texture.
O - A very good Brett Farmhouse, round, delightful, crisp and rich

Best by May 2020. Bottle gushed a lot. Lots of odd white head. Dark golden orange color.

A very nice saison. Brett funk and has an orval vibe to it. Earthy, floral, bitter. Wet oak. Orange peel and some citrus. Herbal. Zesty.

Fizz out. Not a good start.

Murky brown-orange color. The head is fine and a petty bure white. Moderate lacing.

Apple is the first scent that hits me. There's also some cereal, like sweet rye, in there. Very light vinegar. Detectably sour, especially as it warms up.

The taste is a bit sweeter than the nose. The sour is fairly slight. The apple is stronger, and it's probably fair to call it apple vinegar, in sum. It even comes across as fresh. There's a floral element, as well. I'm surprised there's not more complexity, but it's also possible I let it ago too much

Medium carbonation, but at least it's not prickly. In the aftertaste, the fruit lasts maybe fifteen seconds, and then yields to some dull bitterness and astringency.

On-tap @ Rattle N Hum West in New York, NY.

Deep gold / light amber and hazy. Average off-white head. Fantastic aroma showcasing great complexity. Barnyard funk from the Brett, citrus, stone fruit, and sweet pale malt aroma. Tart flavor with some oak barrel adding to the flavors that carry over from those previously mentioned in the aroma. Very dry and clean finish. Medium bodied but drinks much lighter that its 8% ABV.

I had a disappointing experience a few years ago with a gushing bottle of the regular Seizoen Bretta, but this was outstanding.

Bought a bottle from Maui Brewing company to go. Two days later after refrigeration. 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. I almost think the bottle was spoiled. Maui Brewing refunded the purchase price.

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.
