Our Brett Venture series is the exploration of how single strains of Brettanomyces ferment and condition a Saison malt bill. Each Brett Venture will be fermented in and aged in wine barrels with a different Brettanomyces strain to showcase its unique characteristics.

100% fermented with a brett strain from Cantillon, like Brett Project #1 (Brett Venture #1), but with lactobacillus added to the Chambourcin barrel, where it aged for six months. The result is similar to the lively characteristics of Brett Project #1, but with more acidity.

Please note that the Lactobacillus version is denoted with an L marked inside the Missouri stamp on the back label. The regular version is marked with a number 1.

Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours cloudy and straw-colored with a creamy, quickly dissipating, white head. The aroma is a funky intermingling of lactic and lemon acidity, bready yeast and damp oak. Light-bodied with stinging carbonation. The flavor is tart, bready and oaken with a tangy, raspy, lemon zest finish. Balanced nicely. Another world-class beer brewed by Perennial and shared by landhoney!

Hazy golden color with white head that dissipates quickly. Nose of citrus, lacto, brett, fruity. Tastes of pineapple, citrus, brett, lacto, hint of oak. Tart, but not overly acidic. Crisp and refreshing. Really fabulous. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of light tartness/sourness, some pale malts, notes of light fruit, and hints of light notes of barrels. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Average texture. A really good beer.

sample at the barrel aged saison off. Lots of gueuze style flavors. Some tartness and barnyard. Saison yeast is light and in the background. Very charming.

Bottle sample thanks to phaleslu during the post Grand Tasting bottle share in our room. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have Brett, grass, tangy citrus, some mild tropical fruit notes, dry, farmhouse funk, lactic character is more noticeable, yogurt, some mild barrel character, better than the non lacto version though I would like to try this again in a different setting.

This is really freaking great! Cloudy yellow with a bright white head. Perfectly sour, great stone fruits and lemony flavors. Carb is perfect. The funk in the background is spot on. I could really drink a lot of this.

Bottle shared at the CCB Brewpub PreHunahpu Tasting - Pours a hazy yellow w/ white head. Very bretty in the nose with some lemon zest. The taste is fuller compared to the non-lacto version. A nice malt build, lacto, peaches, lemons, and really smooth. More funkier and so much better. I’d give this two thumbs up.
