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)!

Bottle last night, pours translucent amber, I was able to keep the yeast in the bottle on this one, thin white head. Lots of citrus in nose, some light must. Taste has a nice sour from beginning to end, lemon, orange zest. Light body, light acid. Made for a good sipping beer last night.

Great sour citrus Aronís of lemon tangerine. Musky though, got that horses blanket. Thorough. Appears murky slightly dark gold. Opaque white spotty head. Taste is balanced lemon. Drying on the palate. Maybe slight acidic tangerine. Very tasty.

P: Golden haze with bubbles but head forms. S: Dominated by wheat and tangelos I cant really smell anything else. T: Puckery citrus, watermelon, wheat, tangelos and light lacto. M: Thin and a little puckery. O: Really interesting beer, not your regular sour or wit.

Bottle at flying saucer, KC- pours opaque, grain colored, minimal white head that fades to nothing. Nose- citrus, lemon zest, funk, barnyard, oak, real appetizing. Lighter bodied, Brett sour notes, just enough wheat to call this a wit. Citrus barnyard funk flavors. Solid ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - Pours hazy golden with a filmy white head. Lemony nose, with dusty yeast. Dry, with a bit of plastic and light tartness. Taste is lemon, real tart with a white vinegar element. Medium-thin with soft carbonation.

Pours golden yellow and murky. On a darker beer, this cloudiness would seem ominous. Here, it just kinda looks more viscous than it actually is. The head is small, white and fades away pretty quickly. The aroma is big on citrus. No idea what they actually used, but it reminds me of limes, oranges and citron. Some vanilla, oak. Mild funk. Some grass. Thereís an unexpected lactic note to it. The taste is fairly sour with a lot of citrus. More lactic than acetic, but the sourness is relatively strong, surprisingly so for an all brett beer. Itís all citrus peels, funk and yogurt with a splash of apple cider vinegar. Tasty and fairly refreshing. Fair bit of pucker. Some body to it. Carbonation isnít very high, but it prickles on the tongue. Itís similar to Almanac Farmerís Reserve #4. I quite like citrus sours, but I kinda think the citrus is hiding some messiness. Thatís probably not fair. Iím just not sure how I would feel about this beer if the citrus and sour were dialed back.

Bottle. Hazy gold with a thin quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is tangerine, lemon and musty funk. Taste follows and adds some lactic notes, plastic and oak. Crisp thin mouthfeel. Very good.

marcus (6441) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle from Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours cloudy golden wit a modest off-white head and a fruity wheat aroma. There is a delicious tangerine wheat flavor that leaves brett sourness on the palate. Very refreshing.
