COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Midnight Brett is chocolate brown in color, brewed with 2-Row, Midnight wheat, raw wheat and rye malt. It was hopped with a blend of Perle, Glacier and Simcoe hops. The beer was fermented with our house strain of Brettanomyces in stainless tanks. The finished beer has the aroma and flavor of fresh berries, sour cherries and a slight roasted character. The finish is pleasantly tart and fruity making this beer very drinkable.

Pours jet black with a mocha head. Aroma of roasty malt, oak, funk and stone fruit. Taste is tart, funky brett, oak, roasty chocolate and plums. Very different, even for a dark sour.

Taco Mac "speakeasy" in Charlotte, which I didn’t even know existed. What a fantastic room and night. With all the rare beers available, I went right for this sour on draft. Darker than I thought, equal part roasty flavor mixed with the brett. Very good. Talked several casual beer drinkers into having this and none of them balked because it was too sour.

Sample @ Quintessence 2014.
Super bonne à boire: une superbe découverte. Le nez est assez acidulé développant des effluves boisées de barrique, de fruits confits (cerise, orange, mandarine?) épicés (cannelle, anis, coriandre, cardamone,…?) quasi sans amertume. En bouche la gorgée est carrément crémeuse, et puis boisé laissant un grain de levure sur la langue. En arrière goût, les bretts poussent l’aventure plus loin en développant des arômes de fruit de mer, un goût micotique salé se terminant sur des notes acres, boisées qui assèchent la langue, et sont rêches au palais. Je reste avec un goût de levain dans la bouche et de pain d’épices.
Une bière assez capiteuse mais laissant aucune lourdeur bouche. Bel équilbre. Magnifique!

keanex (1460) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Bottled October 16, 2013.
Glass: Tired Hands wine glass.
Appearance: Nearly opaque deep ruby with a towering foamy and uneven tan head that sits around for a bit.
Aroma: Raspberry comes to mind immediately, mildly tart with hints of cherry and vinegar. The aroma is mild, but beautiful.
Taste: Slightly soapy with roasted malts and raspberry fighting for attention, winding up balancing each other. The finish is mild of roasted malts, slightly chalky. Mild tartness, but really mellow compared to the aroma.
Palate: Chalky and medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation.
Overall: I guess I was hoping more out of this, I would have loved this to lose the soapy qualities and for it to have some vinegar and tartness to it. Solid, I’d definitely buy again though.
