Brackish is a dark farmhouse ale brewed with grains of paradise and sea salt. We ferment it with our house mixed culture of brett, lacto, and pedio, which produced a bright sourness with a funky and dry, savory finish.

For whatever reason I have never tried this, so Nolen brought a B1 over just as B2 came out. Thanks man! Pours clear deep mahogany, small beige head with good lacing. Aroma is roasty, rye crackers, light sulphur at first. Flavor is medium tart, slaty, very light funk, roasty, somewhat fruity. Medium body, salty finish. Quite good with a year on it.

hopscotch (10082) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Bottle... This beer rocks!Ö Pours mostly clear and dark brown with an off-white head thatís gone faster than you can say ďquick.Ē The aroma is toasty and moderately acidic. Iím not picking up the grains of paradise, but maybe thatís just me. Full-bodied with a lightly creamy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is tart, toasty and salty. Finally, a salty beer that actually tastes fairly salty. Quite tart, moderately salty, lightly yeasty and mildly grainy. Finishes lightly acidic with lingering saltiness. World-class bottle of beer provided by 50belair!

Tasting at Craft Clerkenwell. Thanks to Bruce Deeblo for this one. Hazy amber - brown beer, small pale tan head. Palate is light and crisp and dry. Mild acidic start levels out in to a more mellow sourness. Generic fruits with a Flemish red balsamic vibe. Light dry tangy finish leaves a mild fruity linger. Easy drinking for itís abv.

The taste is tart, tangy, lactic, earth, toast, very light coffee, must, sour cola, light roast, wood, orange marmalade, jammy berry, pepper and quite a bit of acidity with a dry, woody finish.
