COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wild Wild Brett is a series of R&D beers created to showcase the versatility of Brettanomyces, a yeast found naturally all over the world. Historically considered ”wild yeast”, Brett is responsible for 100% of the fermentation in the bottle you hold. Green, the fourth installment of this series is our nod to absurdly hopped beers. Showcasing the Australian Galaxy hop, W.W.B.G. uses 4 lbs of hops per barrel with dank tropical fruit hop characteristics dominating the flavor and aroma.

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle, 75cl. A slow gusher, producing an enormous, dense, off-white head. Unclear, golden body. Funky nose with lemon and a generic fruityness. Very bretty, almost soapy. Lots of hoppyness, and a quite bitter flavor. Very dry, and combined with the bitterness it almost makes you drink constantly to wet the palate. Funky, lemony and very bretty. Very long finish. An intense, extreme beer in many ways, smelling and tasting nice at first, getting better as I drink. 121109

Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Huge creamy head with excellent duration. Color is hazy golden. Aroma and taste are rich hops, flowers, brett, white wine and malt. Nice and dry. Lovely beer.

Bottle at Crooked Stave shared with Thirdeye11. Pours a cloudy orange color with a large white head. A huge nose of hay and fruity hops. The flavor is awesome: sharp and dusty Brett, hay, light fruity hops mix in with the dusty dry flavors, some sweet candy struggles through. Very big flavors with a perfect soft palate. Awesome. This is dead on delicious.

In short: A very bright a lively brett IPA. Superb stuff
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed probably fresh, a few weeks after receiving it from adnielsen, thanks a lot Aaron
The look: Cloudy orange body topped by a large white head with good retention
In long: Nose is an explosion of bright brett, sharp fruity hops (tropical fruits and citrus fruits) as well as far from subtle cat piss (I suspect Citra here or else there is another way with brett IPA to get cat piss aroma). Body is crisp, full, semi-fluffy and as lively as my favorite session true Belgian ale. In mouth the bright hoppy hops mixed with the sharp brett bring a fresh grapefruits, orange peels, tangerines, more. Very sharp but not too intense bitterness. It is up there with the best brett IPAs I’ve ever had (Midnight Sun 3767, Bullfrog Undead, first batch of Mikkeller USAlive!, others…) except Hill Farmstead E which is in a class of its own. My wife absolutely loved this beer, and it is hard to express the happiness I feel to turned my wine-loving wife into a true beer lover, very hard, extremely hard, impossible to express in fact, I wish my wife would stop drinking from my beers.

(750ml bottle) Pours a cloudy golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of florals, herbs, barnyard, green apple, leather, and citrus. Flavor of grass, lemon, grass, lime, and brett with a dry, wood finish.

Thanks for sharing, Jeff! Big gusher, and a great look to it. Super sharp bretty nose, but without much in the way of hops. Surprisingly, the initial flavors are wickedly sharp and quite displeasing, with pronounced band-aid and medicinal notes. Thank God it settles quickly into a nice but admittedly a bit twangy brett IPA. Rough start aside, it was enjoyable.

wchesser (1163) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 15, 2012
400th rating. Bottle #462. Massive erupting head as I have come to expect from brett conditioning. Pillowy persistent foam and cloudy gold. Great floral hops and some tropical fruits (pineapple) on nose with some nice brett tones. Like a fruity Rayon Vert. Great.

Bottle shared at Woodshop 7. Gold with white head. Tropical citrus aroma, melon and mango, modest bitterness, Orval-like body and finish, somewhat bandaidy in the aftertaste.
