Whos afraid of the "big bad BRETT?" Well tell you who: winemakers! Because of our close proximity to several hundred wineries, we often get winemakers visiting our brewery. (After all, it takes a lot of great beer to make great wine!) Because we use 100% Brettanomyces yeast to ferment Sanctification, most winemakers will only smell the glass, and only a very few will venture to taste the beer. They think the Brettanomyces will attach to their clothing and end up in their winery. A simple solution was offered: keep a smudge pot burning at the door of our brewery so they can burn their clothes when exiting, but even that was not enough. After giving it more thought, we concluded that winemakers think Brettanomyces might scar their taste buds and possible even permeate their skin? Either way, Sanctification is one of the most unique beers you will ever taste! It was fermented with 100% Brettanomyces, rather than the traditional Saccharomyces.

Pours light pale yellow, cloudy, thin film of foam. Aroma is yeasty, feels saisony but also soft and fruity-creamy. Taste is sour with barnyard and berries. Bit of bitterness and that is left also later and keeps lingering. Dry and tingling the roof of my mouth. Combined with fruitiness and subtle sour, this one is really multy-layered and actually keeps growing on me. Solid.

bottled on June 2015, surprisingly smooth even though its only been aged for 6 months. I am really loving this; pours pale yellow with white head, it has aroma of clove and dough. the flavor is a blend of citrus and cheese; its very delicious and well balanced.

jbruner (3999) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with big fluffy white head that dissipates slowly to leave good lace. Aroma of funky gym socks, barnyard hay, and sweet citrus. Taste is more toward the citrus and funk. Just plain amazing, funking awesome.

Bottle shared at a tasting. Thanks Jon! Pours a straw yellow with some haziness and a one-finger white head. Brett forward barnyard nose with pears and light green grapes. Citrus and lemon zest notes along with some light green pineapple notes and bread. Short-lived finish but still solid.
