COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
IPA Primitif– Ever had an extremely hoppy sour beer before (sour, as in Lacto… Bretta does not create sour flavors)… The answer is NO! You have never had a super hopped sour beer, because the microbes that make the ’cheek puckering sour’ are extremely sensitive to hops! We’ve figured out a method to get around these sensitivities and developed a 100 IBU brew fermented with Lacto and Bretta, aged in barrels, and then dry hopped.

This Third installment in our Office Space themed ’Case of the Mondays Series,’ uses a unique double fermentation (warm with Lactobacillus delbrueckii in the kettle then cool with a special Bretta). This sour/wild beer is extremely hoppy, barrel aged, and dry hopped. Focus of this beer is decidedly fruit (think ruby red grapefruit), from the choice to use mosaic hops, citra hops, Amarillo, coriander, and tangerine zest. Brewer: Trinity Brewing Company Style: Sour/Wild Ale Alcohol Content: 4.1% Seasonal: No

laiti (7981) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 2, 2016
37,5 cl bottle @ home
Aroma has strong bretta tartness and fruit candy in the background. Flavour has tart citron, grapefruit, bretta tones and hints of cereal-style malt. Also mild gastric acid tones. A bit too tart to be completely enjoyable. Indeed no signs of 100 IBU, sourness overrides it I guess.

Taste is sourish, tartish and grassy with some bretta, wood, oak, fruits, vinous notes and hops. Finish is tartish and sourish with hints of bretta, spices, oak, fruits and hops. Interesting, quite sour and tart.

DuffMan (9285) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 3, 2016
Bottle. Gusher! Turbid dull orange with a lively head. Aroma of grapefruit and sour yoghurt with funky undertones. Juicy and acidic, sour and hoppy as promised! Woody undertones, imparting kind of a dirty quality that I thought took away from the zesty focus. Finish is sour and dry. Really good.

I'm not a hop head so I was a little concerned about this, but honestly the lacto balances the bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
