With all its complexities, this beer is, at its core, a play between the fragrant and dusty flavors of an unique yeast blend on one side and the bright hops (40 IBU) and stimulating black pepper on the other. The heavy grain base leans toward malted wheat with just enough black malt to give a color backdrop for the late addition of a fresh red beets extract. The beets boost fermentation with simple sugars and adds a funky-ass hue to the dirty brown base. If the color wasn’t dirty enough, the yeast blend sure sullies things up; a wheat yeast, two different brettanomyces strains, and a lactic acid bacteria bring flavors that reach to the heavens while at the same time being reminiscent of the dirt on the bottom of your shoe.
