COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed predominantly with organic 2- row, the malt bill is rounded out with organic light munich, organic 60L crystal and caravienna. Northwest Golding and Hallertauer hops provide a pleasant hop character. Right out of primary fermentation this beer is decidedly an American Pale Ale, but as it enters secondary, a bridge to Belgium is built with a dose of Brettanomyces Bruxellensis. A 5 week maturation results in slightly dry, fruity beer with a hint of floral Brett character that will evolve over time.

Bottle at catch 22 bottle share! Pours a hazy golden orange with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave light lace. Aroma and taste are nice light brett funk with a hint of sour acidity over pale malt and sweetness. Smooth and easy, nicely done.

vyvvy (4499) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 15, 2015
Pours hazy orange / amber with a white head. The aroma has lots of sweet tarts, cherries, berries and mild tartness. It has a medium / light body that is lightly rough and has lots of minor semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts off with buggy earthy brett, heavy blackberries and mild malt in the back. The finish is very berry with brett and pepper. Nice approachable wild ale.
