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)!

(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!

Bottle shared with Pat before some ramen at Ippudo, in HK NYC. Pours a lovely hazed yellow body with nice vibrant white head and lacing. Aroma is super tart lemons, barnyard funk and a crisp grassy character. Nearly perfectly balanced. Mouthfeel is dry and sour with notes of tart lemons, sour wheat, salt, lime and light tart citrus fruits. Overall, an incredibly balanced sour saison that could serve as a session beer as well.

Benzai (6409) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle shared by Fonefan at his place. Opaque murky pale yellow color, small to medium sized white head. Aroma is very nice and balanced, I get wheat, brett, fruitpeel, orangepeel, citrus, grapes, a bit winey. Taste is fresh, balanced, very nice. Again brett, winey, grapes, citrus, orangepeel. Fantastic beer.

Mouth-puckeringly sour, as you would expect. Lacto sourness dominates, propped up by a solid wheat malt background. Citrus fruit is prominent - especially the tangerine as expected. Slightly too tart for my taste. There is a funkiness to this brew, although I would call this beer more fruit-forward than funky-forward. Mouthfeel is EXCELLENT - it’s not dry and backbone-less like some sour beers are. The wheat malt really lingers on the tongue. Just lovely.

Tap at the source. Pours hazy straw with white head that lasts and laces. Smells of tangerine/tangelo, funk, and some bready notes. Drinks with a moderate tart bite and no lingering bitterness. Light bodied. Tastes of tart tangelo, white grape, and slight wheat flavors. Dry, tart finish.

Bottle. Courtesy of James. Pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of horse blanket, barnyard funk, sea air and lemon. Taste of salt water, lemon, and lactic, dry funk. Palate is dry as hell and tart. Juicy in the beginning but finishes very dry. Excellent. Sour. Gorgeous. Rustic. Gordon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

375ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy medium straw, with a white head. Fruity, spicy, funky aroma, citrus peel, hay, malt, wood, Dry, light to medium bodied, low bitterness, balanced CO2. Funky, sour, spicy taste, lemon peel, malt, earth, grass, cider apples, wood. Long, acidic, tart, wonderfully balanced finish, that ends on a refreshing, bitter citrus peel note. Delightfully drinkable, not extremely complex, but great even so. (2014-01-18)
