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)!

marcus (6497) - 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.

Dr_Fellini (413) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is apple tart, Brett, light wheat. Flavor is moderately spur with a light sour fruit sweetness. Light to medium in body with a lingering mild oily sour. Very tasty on a warm summer day.

bhensonb (11066) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy light amber with no noticeable head. Aroma is musty citrus. Med body, or nearly. Flavor is instant sour, followed by definite sweatsox, with some grapey/mustiness. Itís mouth devouring sour, apparently based on citrus. Very nice drink!

Crash_the_dog (150) - Fairway, Kansas, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Sampled (over and over and over) at boulevardia. Spectacular beer - buttery yellow color with a faint head. Assertive funky nose, with a citrus hint. Taste matches, with a lingering tartness on the tongue. I look forward to going back to this one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

onceblind (4066) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Hazy rustic golden with a thin white cap. The nose is absolutely lovely with notes of lilac and floral hibiscus with a funky Brett yeast note and orange peel. Tangy flavor with funky Brett and orange zest with the tiniest bit of lime as well..also some earthy floral tones on the finish but itís predominately sour citrus rind and a wee touch of clove and fresh white oak. Lightly tart with a good earthy dry Bretty flavor.

RABinCO (1288) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2014
2014 bottle poured into a goblet. Pours hazy gold with a bit of thin bubbly head. Aroma is awesome. Tart, funky, a bit of fresh juicy tangelo. Taste is big and super tart with tons of fresh juicy tangelo. Not overly sweet, avoids going down the sweet tarts route. Super refreshing. Gonna need to stock up on this.

Draft - Nice tart sweet citrus with Brett. Cloudy orange with no head. Lots of funk, tart and bitter with a sweet citrus in the background.

Oakes (12552) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
Hazy yellow, lots of lacto on the nose, light brett, quite tart with pithy bitterness, Iím guessing from the tangelo, relatively light body. Very refreshing, I could go back to this.
