BEER INFO

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.

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.

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.

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip to a slightly hazed orange with a dense three finger head that retains well and leaves decent lacing.
S: Smells of barnyard, funk, citrus, and tropical fruits. Hints of tartness on the aroma as well.
T: Taste is funk and horseblanket with some citrus and tropical fruits, dry cracker maltyness as well with just a bit of lemony tartness. Swallow is tropical fruits and more citrus with some lingering barnyard funk.
M: This one is on the lighter side and borders on being watery. Carbonation is fairly active and just slightly prickly. The finish on this beer is nice and drying.
O: Overall just a really solid and well done brett beer with some nice hop notes. Definitely one to try and if I didn't have so much beer already I'd be kicking myself for only buying the one.

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

750mL bottle acquired through The Bruery's Society. Bottled 12/1/15. Served in my fancy fluted Hoarders stemware.

Pours a hazy burnt amber with a tall three finger cap of white froth. The head never fully settles, leaving a jagged layer of foam and huge, fluffy sheets of lace.

Aromas of orange, berries, construction paper, vegital funk, lemon and earth. Pretty nice.

Flavor follows the nose pretty well. Orange peel, pine, farmy funk, vague lemon, melon rind, old wood, berry seeds, flower stalks, subtle bread and a little earth. There is a whole lot of flavor that almost seems to simultaneously battle each other and work together to create an extremely drinkable brew.

Light body with lively carbonation. Aftertaste comprised of citrus zest, pine and an earthy, woodsy funk.

I'm much more a fan of sweet imperial beers than funky session beers but Batch No 1731 brings the funk in a delightfully crushable way.

Split with rudzud
Pours a huge fluffy fizzy huge 2+ finger head fades at a med pace, nice sticky lacing, hazy honey orange color.

Nose big Brett funk, tons of earthy barnyard funk that almost seems like it was not supposed to be Brett, light sweet toasty malt, straw grain and a weird burnt rubber funk plastic thing.

Taste brings more barnyard Brett funk, earthy farmhouse cheesy funk, little straw toasted grains, mild phenols, a little plastic note but not a bad as the aroma, nice grassy floral hops, little spicy earthy hop, fair bitter. Finish dry bitter, little funk lingering, pretty clean other than bitterness.

Mouth is med bod, nice carb perhaps a bit too much.

Overall pretty nice other than the weird plastic burnt rubber thing from Brett probably getting too much oxygen.
