COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Cool beer, like a dark gose. I love the complexity even if the flavors don’t make my favorite beer, the tartness and roasty malts and the pronounced salt make this a beer that stands out from the pack.

750ml bottle pours dark brown black with small tan head. Nose is roasty dark cocoa and dark grain with layered tart berry, cherry, and vinius fruit, touches of dusty oak. Taste is creamy dark roasty vinius fruit and earthy cocoa and dusty dark chocolate, nice berry acidity throughout. Finish is tart dry roasty dark grainy cocoa and complex vinous berry fruit, red grape. Fantastic.

Bottle shared thanks to JBPortland ! Pours a deep umber mahogany color with a finger of eggshell foam. Lots of vinous fruit, leather, mushroom, blueberry and blood orange in the nose . Palate follows with tons of complexity to the point where you can just make shit up... yeah one of those beers that just brings so many flavors descriptions that you get overwhelmed but then you realize that all these favors exist but the balance is still harmonious and extremely easy to drink ! Well Done !

Luk_ (120) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2014
On tap at FoFa. Pours a murky Brown with purple highlights and very low head. Aroma is red wine vinegar along with roast, earth and bugs. I found the taste to be too sour (lactic and acetic) to go along with the roastiness. Not my favourite type of sour, but a nice experiment nonetheless.

Marheb (2082) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2014
(FOFA 2014): Un liquide sombre violet qui laisse échapper des effluves de raisins bleus et de vin rouge. Extrêmement juteux avec des soubresauts lactiques et taniques. Curieux mais délicieux.

Bottle @ home. Thanks, Greg. Dark brownish pour with a reddish hue. Nice sour dark fruit, raisin, and roast. Slight seaweed and herbs. A little bit of black cherry, too. Flavor has a good acidity to it but a touch red wine vinegar. Nice grape and black cherry. Some raisin, slight salt and seaweed. Nice mild roast and subtle malt sweetness. Good balance.
