COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A significant portion of malted white wheat in the grist provides a fluffy mouthfeel on an otherwise lean frame. Hefty late and dry-hop additions of Mosaic and Amarillo create an intense aroma of stonefruit and spice. Brettopia is Perennial’s first beer to be bottle-conditioned with a unique strain of Brettanomyces, which creates a crisp finish, racy effervescence, and a yeast character that will continue to develop with time.

Suttree (5073) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 10, 2014
RBWG bus beer. Murky orange, thin white head. Smells really orangey, citrusy, and a bit oaky. Taste was kinda hairspray, actually. some funk, some oak, some floral notes, but a bit overwhelming with the weird hairspray notes...

Bottle shared on the RBWG bus tour (LaZoom!). Clear gold pour. Nose is slightly funky with some cooked banana. Definitely a dry palate. Some slight barnyard notes with celery and cooked banana. Very thin body and way too prickly and fizzy. Not a favorite, I must say.

BeerandBlues2 (9465) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle. Pours lightly hazy gold with a large, creamy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is Brettanomyces, earthy and spicy hops, citrus, biscuit and honey malt with pear esters. Flavor is Brettanomyces, moderate hops and bitterness with fruity esters, supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body and heavy carbonation.

Beautiful copper color with a simple nose of hops and Brett. The taste is a really nice balance of spice and earthiness with a beautiful Brett funk that is a little tart and then it finishes dry and hoppy. I really like this one! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours hazy brownish golden with a large off-white head. The aroma has fruit amarillo hops, funky earthy brett bugs, smooth caramel, spices and peaches. It has a medium crisp body with lots & lots of prickly carbonation. The flavor begins with spice and earth from the hops, basement funk and light caramel. The finish is quite hoppy and sharp. Interesting beer. Would like to try it in about 6-12 months when the hops drop down and the brett shows off a bit more.
