COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden Brett is a dark golden colored beer, brewed with Victory, 2-Row and Red Wheat malt. It was lightly hopped with a blend of Northern Brewer and Simcoe hops. The beer started it’s primary fermentation in a stainless tank and finished fermentation in a 800 gallon oak foudre. The finished beer has fruity nose and flavors of citrus, apricot and bread crust. The mild tartness of the beer gives way to a long, clean finish.

375 ml bottle shared by TwoSipDip at the RBSG presidential suite post-something tasting. Thanks, Tony! Pours a cloudy gold color with a white head. Notes of big bretty funk, apricot, peach, grapes, straw, wheat, oak, and bread. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a fruity, funky mouthfeel. Really nice brett sour.

Bottle shared at RBSG 2014 in the fart dungeon. Barnyard and lemon in the nose. A hazy, dark yellow pour. Strong lemon in the flavor with a drying finish. Some light smokiness in there too that is just a touch off

Bottle shared at the Thursday Petey Fart/Rake Dungeon (St Louis, MO). Pours a well hazed frothy amber orange, frothy whitish head atop sits around and laces well. Aromas are funky and bretty, touches of pineapple, lemon and cobwebs. Gentle vanillin, bread, straw, and cobwebs. Initial is lighter end of the fold, touches of pineapple, funk and cobwebs. Mellow oak, bread, straw, gentle pear. Middle is a bit sweet, bready and cobwebs meet touches of straw, cobwebs. Firmer pineapple, gentle lactic yogurty feel meets some vanilla. Finish is dry, funky, a bit tart overall. Solid stuff, pretty approachable.

deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle thanks for sharing. Pours a near clear yellow with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma is full of Brett notes with a hint of earthy fruit and grains. Flavor has a bit more tartness with some earthy funk and a touch if sweetness in the finish.

Marheb (1945) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
Un nez de pêches, oranges, verdure humide mais principalement d’ananas grillés. En bouche c’est ébouriffé et l’ananas est intransigeante de façon presque spectaculaire, l’ananas chauffé, maltraité par une flamme. La complexité des fruits est impressionnante, dire que la plupart du bouquet vient des bretts. La finale est légèrement cuirée et animée d’une douce sécheresse, buvabilité foudroyante.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 8, 2014
hazy gold, fizzy white head dies to ring lacing heavily. Strong hay and sulfur in dryer nose, brett dominating with lightly sweet bubblegum and white grape. Sweeter flavor, front is strong brett with grape skins and raw sugar, thin and sweet across mid, harsh yeast aspects as the slimy end punches with light acid. Incredibly juicy, even refreshing, but the brett overpowers mid palate and beyond, conflicted hay and sweetness leave an experience too rich.

Draft to snifter at Funk Asheville. Looks good; a very slightly cloudy golden orange with white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells mildly tart, hoppy, and funky. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Enjoyable.
