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. This third installment of the series which incorporates honey, turmeric, mango and spices was inspired by the savory sweet combinations found in Southern Indian cuisine. Yellow pours a golden hue delivering tropical fruit aromas mixed with a medley of spice, earthy citrus flavors and a dry tart finish.

>> Thank you Aaron for the share. Pours cloudy light golden. Nose is really lovely reminiscent of Upright’s use of Old Tom Gin barrels: sage, yellow rose, yarrow, squash. Taste is juicy, salty, starfruit, Gin barrel. Palate is aerated, refreshing. Impressive.

Bottle thanks to Aaron at the RBWG 2014 grand tasting, thanks! Pours a hazy gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice sour fruit note with a bit of lemon and underlying light grain and funk. Flavor has a real nice sour fruit tartness with grain and light funk backing.

Bottle at RBWG Asheville Grand Tasting. Thanks catman! Pours cloudy pale yellow with a frothy white head. Mild herbals in the nose, tangy lemons, mellow funk. Light sweet flavor with citric lemon bite, dry hay, herbs. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Pretty dry on the finish with more herbs, basil, tart lemons. Good one.

Pours a bright medium yellow gold. Surprisingly, it’s quite clear. The head is medium-sized and white, dissipates pretty quickly leaving little to no lacing. Lots of Indian spice. Good dose of turmeric, coriander and other spices that I mostly associate with curry. There’s also some lime and tropical fruit in the mix. Less funk than red but more depth overall. The taste has more of the citrus and pineapple but there’s still a spice edge. Turmeric pineapple finish. Medium to light tartness. Light on the palate with fizzy carbonation. Interesting beer. Lots more citrus than expected. I wonder if they threw in some kaffir lime leaves or something.

Heavy bandaid bomb here. Underlying lemons, spices, and horseblanket, with a nice acidity, but the phenols are too much.
