BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bruery Terreux
California, United States

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.

A: Pours a clear amber w/ a healthy two finger head that lingers.

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.

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.

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.
