Notes / Commercial Description:
Midnight Brett is chocolate brown in color, brewed with 2-Row, Midnight wheat, raw wheat and rye malt. It was hopped with a blend of Perle, Glacier and Simcoe hops. The beer was fermented with our house strain of Brettanomyces in stainless tanks. The finished beer has the aroma and flavor of fresh berries, sour cherries and a slight roasted character. The finish is pleasantly tart and fruity making this beer very drinkable.

Love the substantial Brett's. Tastes like a dark fruit cocktail

Killer- thanks to Suzanne at the blind tiger! Pours a dark mahogany color with two fingers of head, good retention, barely any lacing.

Smells awesome- lots of Brett funk, not too sour, a little chocolate.

Tastes awesome too- same kinda thing going on. Malt up front, followed quickly by Brett funk, then a lingering funk mixed with roasted malt and chocolate.

Medium bodied full carbonation. This is a keeper. Get it if you can!

On tap at taproom in patchogue

Pours just like the name...midnight black with a tiny ring of bubbles. Smells like tart grapes with a little bit of plums. Taste is not as sour as the nose let's on, more funky with a slight sour grape twing. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side with soft carbonation. Overall this beer blew me away, I hope more of this makes it into my market.

This beer smells like...victory. And it tastes great too, first taste to swallow and finish. Great brew.
