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.

Bottle thanks to Dustin. Pours a cloudy gold with medium frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is strong brett, funk, oak, lemon zest. Thin mouth, lemon, funk, brett, oak, light dry finish, very good.

Bottle, generously shared by Dice along with both of the batch 2 versions at a tasting in October. I’m putting my complete notes here for all of them.

1. Brett only. Batch 1: cloudy hazy gold. Offwhite minimal head (only one of the 3 where head remains). Cider, muted taste - flowers, botanical. What I think of as brett isn’t huge ... Muted all around, but totally tasty beer anyway. Medium body, average carbonation. 7/4/7/3/14. 2. Batch 2: pours so gross - gushed the dregs to the top, now it looks like shake shake. Similar to 1 -- more floral, very floral. Mineral, lemon ... But for the most part, pretty muted. 7/2/7/4/14 3. Batch 2 lacto: ... aside from the gushing, this isn’t too different from the other batch 2. Or batch 1 for that matter. 7/4/8/4/15

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.

jandd1983 (3862) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - MAY 8, 2014
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.

Sampled at dld. Very hazy and yellowish. A bretty and lemony nose. A lemon flavor. Bret is evident and really nice. Surprisingly gentle beer. Really 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.
