solera style blended brett belgian brew, delicious and mature, yet also kind of weird on the brett side of things. light amber in color and not totally clear, holding an inch of off white head well. i get wine right away on the nose, tannins and dried fruits, amarone style, rich and earthy, sweet and concentrated by time, very mature beer on the fruit side. the brett is a little funny, not as clean and straight up fruity as it is in other recent releases from them, this is more like the aria they did all those years back, and less refined, but i feel immediately endeared to it as well, as the belgian aspects of the yeast really bring on the best of the wild, and while there is a slight iodine element, i think it works together really well, especially with the wood aspect, which seems like a higher proportion of the blend than it is. pleasant carbonation gives way to piquant vinous elements and heavy brett density, white grapes too, vanilla, dried apple, very autumnal to me, but also very alive. i think this is a cool project, a neat blend, and something thats very likely to continue to evolve and get better and better as time moves along. wine heavy, betty but strange, and filling as they go, but a cool use of multiple yeasts and worth the money they ask for it. always a treat to share something like this with a close homie!

750ml bottle. Served in a Perennial willi-becher glass.

Pours a slightly cloudy light copper body, two finger white head, good carbonation, lots of lacing. Smells wonderful, with tons of stonefruit, lemon, grain, lactic acid, minerals, earth, oak. A lot going on here in the aroma. Flavour is not quite so complex, but still great. Mild cereal grain, lemon, orange peel, lactic acid, earthy bitterness, leather, touch of oak and bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, mild creaminess, good carbonation, earthy and oaky bitterness on the backend. It smells fantastic, and tastes great with a big Brett profile. Still plenty of that American lactic acidity to keep things interesting.

This is a solera beer with, I believe, all Brett cultures. This is what all brett beers should be and what I always hope them to taste like. There is beautiful fruit in the nose including apples, apricots, peaches, barnyard funk, moist earth, hop floral notes. The taste is about the same as the nose but everything is wonderfully layered and there is nuance and complexity in this beer. It is my favorite beer that I had in 2015 and my favorite sour offering I've had from Perennial. Cheers!
