COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
15 years of brewing! You know what’s been the best part lately? Tons of experimentation! For the last couple of years, we’ve been working with several strains of brettanomyces (wild yeast). We found one and deemed it the best for it’s tart flavor and funky, fruity aroma. Adding black mission figs for a subtle jammy aspect, hibiscus flowers for an herbal bouquet and hazy sunset hue, and white pepper for a bit of spicy twang, we’ve created FIFTEEN - a unique drinking experience inspired by the wild farmhouse ales of Belgium. Though immensely complex today, more flavor will emerge with time, so throw a few bottles in your cellar for future celebrations. Thanks to all of you who have made our 15-year ride possible! Peace to all and follow your dreams! Brewed with Rocky Mountain water, malted barley, malted wheat, hops, black mission figs, hibiscus flowers, white pepper, and a very unique strain of brettanomyces yeast.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 29, 2008
(Bottle 65 cl) Clear golden with a small off-white head. The aroma is dominated by very dry Brett accents. Surprisingly light-bodied with light malt and fruit notes and then again these extremely dry and lightly astringent Brett accents. No real bitterness as such. Quite interesting. 210908

omhper (19657) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2008 Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Almost clear deep golden, small head. Interesting Orvalish aromna of yeast, orange and hay - Brett is evident. Medium sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel. There are alomndy caramal and citric tartness as well as light piney bitterness. Very similar to Mikkeller IT’S ALIVE, but more citric. Really good, but for Orval class softer malt and even more depth must be added.

Cloudy gold beer, no real head. Immediately reminded of Deus - with an aromatic sweet water chesnut. This beer also has a sweet undertone and a sourish main. I fancy the sweetness is the hibiscus. Crisp palate and with spicy (white pepper) kick in the dry finish. Unusual.
