COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mortis will enwrap you in autumn coils of tartness and decay, with ripe Fuyu persimmons bringing the slightest blush to a pale ale fermented entirely with brettanomyces bruxellensis. German and Northwest wheat, pale and acidulated barley malt and a touch of C-45 Crystal combine with Fuggles hops to wrap things up dry, tight and tart, refreshing and satisfying. Mortis has set in just in time for Thanksgiving.

On tap at St Augustine’s in Vancouver. A pale amber beer with a bit of white head. Fruity on the nose. A very pleasantly fruity sour ale with, yep, distinct persimmon note. Highly drinkable for summer. 3.6.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014
Hazy light amber. Aroma is light, bit fruity and a bit floral. Malty, a bit crackery, lightly fruity, it is a bit yeasty and the sour has not kicked in all the way yet.

maxwelldeux (3505) - Everett, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark golden color with a ginormous white head on it. Nose is a little sour, with the unmistakably earthy notes of the brett. Taste is only moderately sour, and decidedly fruity, with an almost brandy-like finish. Not a bad beer.
