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.

Courtesy of Josh; 6.5% ABV
Cloudy golden color with small head. Wonderful aroma, deep, fresh, fruity, with mild Brett character; apricot wine; impression of hard cheese rind. Highly carbonated, smooth mouthfeel, rather dry; strong Brett character, providing also a strong astringency; a lot of bitter orange peel; the acidity is just mild.
Excellent.
