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 (13617) - 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

brokensail (10999) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 12, 2012
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.
