Brewed by:
Bruery Terreux
California, United States
brueryterreux.com

Style: American Wild Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.10%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Batch No. 1731 is a 100% Brettanomyces-fermented hoppy session ale created by homebrewer Kevin Osborne of Los Angeles. When we judged through all of our competition entries, his complex yet quaffable creation shouted WINNER! (as well as tropical!, funky! and dry!). It puts El Dorado, Mosaic and Chinook hops on a pedestal as much as one possibly could.

2016 bottle (the only vintage, I think?) poured into a teku glass, and the foam builds quickly and forms a very large off white head that comes out of the top of the glass beautifully, and the head falls very slowly and leaves loads of lacing. The head gives you a huge aroma of funky Brett that comes off almost like mushrooms, and you also pick up on the very fruity hops. Taste follows almost exactly. Funk forward for sure, but the fruity and very, very floral hop character is still very present on the tongue and works beautifully with the funk. A nice dry finish, light body, and lively carbonation really pulls the beer together amazingly. Overall, this is an absolutely perfect beer for me. The flavors and aromas come together like a symphony. I almost don't understand the lower ratings/reviews, but I guess like many things, beers are very subjective.

Poured from the bottle into a goblet. 12/04/15 etched on the side.

Pours a light copper color with a white frothy head that lingers on forever. 5 minutes in and I've sipped a few times, but the head actually stays almost like a cappuccino with foam sticking to the sides. Beautiful lacing all around the glass as I sip.

Smells funky! Definitely some brettanomyces in there (it also states that on the label) and I also get some nice grassy notes with perhaps some kaffir lime peel. there's almost a musky scent detected as well.

Tastes initially hoppy and and bitey, but smoothed out with a nice dryness. The tounge is left feeling like the Sahara desert. Interesting balance.

Mouthfeel is dry and prickly on the toungue with a crisp, dry finish that lingers on.

Overall a solid funky brew! The balance of malt vs hops is a bit off I think but for this style it can taste this way. I would get this again to try and would like to see if it progresses in the bottle.

Cheers!

Latex, but not much. Can tell there is brett, some hops.

2016 vintage. Bottle from WOB.

Pours slightly hazy orange in color with a nice fluffy white head.

Aroma screams Brett. Horse blanket, funk, leather, and dirty gym socks. Some lemon notes and floral hops.

Taste is dry and funky. The hoppiness is floral with very light amounts of citrus. A long lingering aftertaste brings up notes like crushed aspirin. More leather is definitely present.

Overall, this beer is just too brettanomyces-forward for my liking. It totally took over the beer, which detracted all notes from the underlying style. I see it pairing well with a Calabrese and hard salami sandwich. It gets a 75.5/100.

2016 vintage

L - Pours an opaque orange/amber colored body with a frothy two finger eggshell colored head.

S - Funky brett notes, barnyard, belgian yeast, banana and light citrusfruits. The nose really reminds me of the "Elements of Funk" series.

T - Just straight up funk, leather and barnyard. Not overly complex or even tart. Belgian influence throughout.

F - On the full side of light bodied with high carbonation. It has a dry finish.

O - Simple, almost too simple. It's a good sipping beer, but nothing really keeps my interest here.

Beautiful hazy deep orange glow, with about 3 fingers of creamy white head that slowly settled into a pillow.

Smells of leather, dusty earth, a bit of melon, and some citrus rind

Taste is funky and earthy...although not overwhelming or unpleasant. Very yeasty...it's a wild brett ale, but little to no sourness. I pick up some dry rubber notes...think an old bicycle tire or dirty basketball....tastes better than it sounds.

Nice and dry, thirst quenching. Just the right amount of acidity...not puckering, and the yeast lingers.

A wonderful farmhouse ale.

Copper colored and moderately hazy. There's an inch of rocky tan colored head. The aroma is comprised of citrus hops and tart Brettanomyces. I taste that nice blend of citrus hops with the tart Brett in the back of the palate. The mouth is very carbonated and bone dry.
