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)!

onceblind (6111) - 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.

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 (8000) - 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.

Crash_the_dog (163) - 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

Dr_Fellini (984) - 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.

toxichop (533) - South Gate, California, USA - JUL 4, 2014
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.

popery (1742) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 21, 2014
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.

bhensonb (12959) - 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!

ddemmingjr (790) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2014
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
