COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Solenna pairs the fruitiness of a traditional Belgian yeast strain with the subtle spicy character of Brettanomyces and the floral notes of German hops. Notes of candy apple, cinnamon, and fresh-cut grass give way to a dry finish and firm lingering bitterness.

Sampled at Funkwerks on 9/30/2012. This Belgian ale pours a medium dark orange gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, fruity, grassy, yeasty and slightly bretty. A medium bodied Belgian Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are earthy and spicy, a touch grassy as well. Nice mild lingering hoppiness with a touch of nice malt sweetness at the finish. A touch of brett, this beer is very dry. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and sweet. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Tap at brewery. Murky rustic orange with a bubbly/foamy white head. Interesting hop-full aroma with leafy/floral herbal hop tone on a spicy yeasty toffee backbone. The flavor is pretty nice, with bready spicy (like rye) tones along with a subtle-ish spicy/grassy hop bitterness, with a nice smooth earthiness throughout. Taste isn’t as hoppy as the aroma.

Bottle thanks to Dallas. Thanks man! Pours a clear copper color with a large foamy white head. The aroma is big caramel and a dry vinous woody note. The flavor similarly is a nice mix of a caramel malt, some earthy fruits, white wine with a bit of tartness and dry funk. Very drinkable and tasty. Good.

Tap @ brewery. Pours an amber orange appearance with a cream colored head and good lacing. Fairly herbal hoppy, a bit funky, spicy, light fruity aroma. Quite floral and earthy hoppy flavor with some grass, light fruit, and a light tanginess. Ok.
