We used a method of souring the mash by letting the mash sit overnight at 120 degrees; this created a unique sour flavor naturally. The Bretterweiss takes that souring flavor to another level by adding brettanomyces bruxellensis to the beer in oak wine barrels and letting it age for 14 months. The clarity remained great and the sourness became more complex. A slight oak profile can be found in the midst.

Tap in Portland location. Pours to a glowing transluscent amber body with no head. The aroma is sour acetic and acidic funky sour mash with kiwi. Tangy and tart. The flavor is acidic and acetic sour mash with lemons and kiwi. Sour wheat with subtle vanilla. Complex. The palate is sour and acidic with some acetic vinegar. Crisp clean feel. I loved this beer.

Tap @ Their Portland Pub... Poured a amber/orange with no head. A slight ring of bubbles eventually formed around the edge of the glass. Nose was quite acidic. Woody oak. Sweet with a big vinegar acidic tone. Cracker malts, lemon, bitter rinds. Confused me for lactic yeast. A little burning with tartness in the finish.

Tap at the Portland location - clear copper, nearly still-looking beer - nose of oak, white wine tannins, lacto sourness and mild Brett - flavor is moderately acidic, with a moderate acetic bite, just enough to tingle the tongue - light oak and vanilla - the Brett is very subdued, as lacto and aceto take over in equal measure - a very light cheesy Brett note in the finish - finish of pear and red wine - a nice sour.
