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.

Bottled 12/4/15.

Pours a murky honey orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Thick swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of Brett, funk, barnyard, earth, tropical fruit, and grapefruit juice aromas. Taste is much the same with Brett, funk, barnyard, plastic, rubber, earth, and dirty tropical fruit flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a really aggressive Brett presence that makes this one super funky and barnyard forward all around.

Serving type: bottle.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 12/1/2015. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 2-3 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense foamy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, tangerine, grapefruit, orange peel, peach, pineapple, mango, melon, passion fruit, berry, peppercorn, pine, hay, straw, floral, grass, toasted bread, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and light bready malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big lemon, tangerine, grapefruit, orange peel, peach, pineapple, mango, melon, passion fruit, berry, peppercorn, pine, hay, straw, floral, grass, toasted bread, light musty funk, and yeast earthiness. Moderate pine bitterness and peppery yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, tangerine, grapefruit, orange peel, peach, pineapple, mango, melon, passion fruit, berry, peppercorn, pine, hay, straw, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and light bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitter/spiciness balance and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Very dry finish from carbonation and bitter/spiciness as well. High carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, crisp, fairly sticky, and lightly grainy/bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5.1%. Overall this is an excellent hoppy Brett wild ale style! All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops, fruity/spicy yeast, and light bready malt flavors; and very smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

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.

750ml bottle poured into a snifter. The brew appears a hazy golden color with a huge wave of white froth fills 3/4 of the glass. It takes several pours to get the glass half way filled with liquid instead of all head.

The aroma is really pleasantly bretty with leathery funk, tangy blue cheese/feta and rindy orange character. Its hoppy and funky and everything you would expect based on the description.

The taste however is just ughhh ugly. Its earthen and bitter with a bretty melon aftertaste with hints of plastic. Quite phenolic and not in a good way with a lingering bitterness that just makes it worse.

This is light in body eith effervescent carbonation. This is an absolute dud. Maybe it took too long for me to get this and drink it because its not good, not good at all.
