COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
St. Bretta is our 100% Brettanomyces Whitebier that was just released this week! Not only is St. Bretta an evolution of Wild Wild Brett Orange, but also it will be ever-changing depending on the fresh citrus available that season. For our spring release we decided to brew St. Bretta with fresh Minneola Tangelo. Each seasonal release of St. Bretta will have a diverse range of citrus fruit added to keep the beer fresh and exciting (the summer release was brewed with blood oranges)!

Scopey (5511) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle thanks to Bruce. It pours lightly hazy gold with a small white head. The nose is musty, dank, barnyard, manure, sulphur, spice and fart. The taste is crisp, tart, lemon, grapefruit, sherbet, alka seltzer, some soap with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Smells a bit musty, but the taste makes up for it. As with the other version no great depth, but pretty tasty.

maneliquor (2782) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle cheers to Colin. Pours hazy bright orange with a small, firm white head. Nose is Brett forward with pear, straw, zest, pepper, sherbert and light sugar. Taste is big and bright citrus fruits with moderate piney hops under a funky but clean citric sweet base. Mild grass and spice comes through the tarty funk. Touch sugary. Nice stuff

Bottle shared at Bruce’s in London - thanks to Bruce. Pours hazy yellow-gold with a wispy white cream head. Tangy citrus nose, notes of tangerine, lemon, tangy wheat. Light sweet flavor with sturdy yet understated tangy lemon, doughy wheat bread, some dry hay. Light bodied with average carbonation. Clean finish, fairly dry, with further lemony tang, slight straw bitterness, hints of lemon rind. Nice.

Thanks to Allen for the share on this one. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is some sweet citrus, some earthy brett, some pineapple, and some burlap with lingering citrus. Flavor is similar with earthy brett, barnyard, some sweet citrus, and some lingering sweetness on the finish. Light to medium in body and a nice wild overall.

cbfobes (2152) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Bottle thanks to Armin, pours a hazy gold with a thin head, aroma has touches of citrus and barnyard at the same time, a little bit of funk mixed in as well, the flavor is really tart on the front end with some brett and yeast in the finish, a little bit of must and dirt as well, the citrus comes through as well with the fruit, really nice, I need to track down the summer in a few months.

curepute (122) - New York, USA - NOV 26, 2013
(This is summer, barcode got it wrong)Hazy off golden color with tiny white lacing. Lemon sour nose with funky wheat, brett. Taste starts with lemon at the back which opens up all around your mouth in to a nice dry tartness, also on top of that there is earth, funk, grapefruit, citric acid. Finishes dry and tart, refreshing. Beautiful, I want more!
