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.

The pour is amber in color with a tall off-white head. The nose lives up to the beer’s name. It’s quite "green". A bit of green apple, lime, grass, and honeydew. A bit of sweet bread, lemon, and sugar, too. The flavor has some more tropical fruit notes to go along with the melon, lime, grass, and lemon. A touch of yeast and bready malt flavors. Lightly hoppy as well with some nice floral notes.

Well this has been my favorite WWB to date. Nice golden pour, white head. Aroma is full of nice juicy hops, some dry leathery notes, yeast, brett funk is noticeable. Flavor is hoppy but not bitter at all. I get a hint of an oniony note...but just light enough to keep it ok. Some funk, earthy notes. Very fun beer to drink.

JaBier (4730) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Bottle sampled at Muckfest III. Clear gold pour with a huge off-white head. Aroma of brett, funk, lemon and malt. Malty and funky brett flavor with lemon balm character before a grassy finish.

madvike (2657) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Bottle at Muckfest III - Pours hazy yellow with a huge foamy white head. Nose is really juicy hops, tropical fruit, a little citrus, and a hint of spice. Taste is dry and spicy, with plasticy brett and pale malt. A little dry tartness. Too dry and spicy for my tastes.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Bottle shared at MuckFest 3 - Saturday Edition. Pours a richly hazed dulled golden hue, a touch darker in the body with frothy cakey offwhite head. Thick film, laces well. Aromas are rich green dank hops, touches of citrus, weeds and florals. Firm bretty presence is funky and cobwebs laden. Dry, funky, straw. Initial is more grapefruit brett slanted, bretty malts, touches of apple, pear, and richer green Galaxy hops. Dry and bitter after a sweeter touch of honey, doughy malts, gentle spice and yeast. Dry earthy and bitter hops, Galaxy, stick around and dry out into the finish. Dry and bretty and richly green fresh hops. Cobwebs, dry earthy hops bitter up the finish. Solid, with lingering dryness. Hops add a nice layer.

Poured from a bottle thanks to Kevin. Spicy, fruity, bready malts, slight citrus, and earthy notes. Solid Brett character, horse, spicy, earthy, and amazing. Great beer.

deyholla (6483) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Bottle thanks to Aaron! Pours a near clear orange gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of pine with a hint of backing earthy citrus and a hint of a Brett note. Flavor begins with earthy grassy and citrus note with a bit of bitter citrus towards the finish.

Thanks to drabmuh for sharing this bottle. Served in a SAVOR wine glass. Bottle 487/1368 Pours a cloudy golden with a large white head and a good amount of spotty lacing on the way down. The nose carries some nice tropical fruits along with some orange and grapefruit peel. Somewhat earthy in the background. Most of the character seems to be coming from the Galaxy rather than Brett. Flavor has a nice hop component that’s very fresh. A bit leafy as well. Nice citrus rind and light earth behind the hops. A touch of Brett there as well. Light body with moderate acidity and good carbonation. Light-medium bitterness leads to a dry finish. Nice and interesting, though I would have liked a little more Brett to play against the dry-hop character.

Rustyham (1717) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2012
Cloudy lemon color, very peppery on the nose and tongue. Bitter earthy flavor, definitely English and maybe some New Zealand hop flavors. Some onion flavors, spicy again, herbal, maybe some rye flavor.
