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)!

vyvvy (4080) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Pours golden with a light haze and a small white head. The aroma has lots of brett fun, spice, bugginess, lemon, orange and almost a pithiness to it. It has a light / medium crisp body that’s pretty mellow on the carbonation. The flavor starts has lots of bright citrus, funky yeastiness, minor spice, lots of bugs, hints of barrel aging and a big brightness to it. The finish has a dry maltiness, even more tart citrus, buggy spice and is very peppery. The tartness almost has a bit of a gueuze quality. Excellent.

Bottle, big thanks to Jared! Don’t necessarily agree with the classification, but nevermind...awesome beer. Hazy light rust orange, thin white head. Peach, earthy pineapple, sour apple, nice hoppy bitterness, hay, and very lively. Lighter to medium body with zippy carbonation. Very good.

Pour from a bottle is a nice cloudy golden amber with a small white head. Aroma is a little sour but has a few hints of fruit. Taste is nice and sour with a little citrus zing that leaves a dry after taste.

12-ish oz bottle (12.7?). Extremely funky smell, very heavy on the brett. Taste is similarly funky, but mouthfeel is nice and light. Heavy on the citrus, I think. Really nice.

Thanks wchesser! Pours a clear golden orange with thin white head. Smell is somewhat of a strange doughiness with orange citrus splashes and a bit of floral notes. Taste is comes of as light, crisp, touch vinegar, orange, bretty. Palate is a bit thin, but overall this is a lightly tart refreshing beer with not a terrible amount of complexity. One negative would be that this was perhaps a bit better in its prime. Still love trying whatever Crooked Stave can crank out.
