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.

This is one awesome dark version of a wile ale. lots of dark fruits, plums, prunes and raisins on taste with the classic brett funk. not over the top but well balanced.

Pineapple. Sour apple jolly rancher style. Tiniest bit of roast. Dustier than golden Brett. Nice tight small carb.

Poured into a flute. Beautifully clear and dark copper beer, good carb a lacing
Scent is lightly tart cherries, not much else spare a touch of Brett.
Taste is near non- existent. Slight cherry, brett funk, no tartness that the nose promised. I waited on this drink to warm thinking it was too cool, but even at room temp... Nothing
Mouthfeel was ok too, light and lively.

What a monstrous disappointment,
