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.

Draft at Sam’s Quik Shop. Pours a hazy dark golden with a white thick head. Nose is brett, bread, fruity, with hints of peaches, lemons, and some floral notes, even chamomile. Slight funk and a nice tart acetic kick, but still so very drinkable. Could drink it all day.

Bottle, March 2014... Lukaduke! Let this one sit a bit and glad we did, it seems to be drinking very well right now. Pours a rustic gold with sticky white head. Fruity hops, tropical brett, pineapple, funk, earthiness, oak on the nose. Taste is killer brett ferment -- fruit over funk with nice hops and solid complexity. Lightly tart but not the immediate note here. Fruity and as dry as a 7.2% beer gets. Drinks with lots of life and a long brett finish. I bet this one will be interesting at various stages of its evolution and I regret that I have but one life to give for my country!
