COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Brett Venture #2 uses the same saison malt bill found in Brett Venture #1, but is 100% brett fermented with a strain from Drie Fonteinen and aged in oak barrels for 10 months.

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

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, citrus, hints of grapes, mild woody notes, dry, farmhouse funk, decent though I would like to try this again in a different setting.

Sampled at DLD 2014. It poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma was of biscuit, malts, earthy hops and lemon zest yeast. The taste was of spices, light hops and some bitterness with a dry finish. Very nice.

Thanks to PaulUnwin for the share. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with an ephemeral white head. Nose is pineapple, white oak, lemon, citrus, funk, earthy and fruity brett. Flavor is similar- some light malts, some citrus, funk, lemon, earthy and fruity brett with pineapple and white oak. Light to medium in body and lingering pineapple and white oak in the finish.

Bottle shared at the CCB Brewpub PreHunahpu Tasting - Pours a hazy yellow w/ slight white head. A little more brett in the nose, slightly funked, and citrusy. The taste was a little grassy, lemony, and malted. It was smooth but nothing to scream about.

>> Thanks phaleslu for the share. Also a gusher. Pours cloudy white peach. Weaker foam. Nose is peach pie, fresh fruit. Taste is sugary, mild chlorine. Palate is powdery, chalky. Okay.
