COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Serenity is our aptly named 100% Brettanomyces fermented beer. We are one of only a handful of breweries in the US doing 100% Bretta fermentation. That said for our first one we wanted to do it in the farmhouse style that bretta entered the Belgian brewing world. Serenity is light in color with a subtle golden haze, the nose bursts of white grape, mango, pineapple and old leather. The flavors are similar to those found in New Zealand white wines and notes of guava and grape skin stand out leading to a well-rounded finish.

Formerly known as Transcendence.

Draft sample on tour at the Funkatorium served in a tiny snifter glass; hazy golden color with white head. Aroma notes of white wine like fruitiness, citrus, hay and some tropical fruits. Taste adds bread, oak, lemon, pineapple and yeast funk. Light body, low-moderate carbonation, soft with fruity tart finish. Good stuff.

On tap downstairs WW. Hard to believe it has taken me until now to try this beer. Nice hazy light golden pour into perfect glassware as always. Super subtle but so good. Somewhat tart, somewhat funky, earth and citrus. Reminiicent of a NZ white gone rogue - green grass and mild tropical notes. Great finish- crisp and dry. Couldn’t ask for much more in a summer beer.

dlovell2 (1267) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2015
Pours cloudy golden with white head. Aroma is light fruity, lemon, white wine and light funk. Flavor is light fruitiness of green grapes, citrus sourness, lemon, white wine, dry oak and a light farm house funk finish. Nice light bubbly mouth feel. The funk flavors were light in this beer and a lot of white wine flavors and aromas. Really enjoyed. Excited to finally try something from this brewery.

sebletitje (7879) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle @ Drink Rich’s American beer, thanks to Omgrich. Dorée trouble voire paille, col blanc. Arôme de brett très présent voire de trop comme souvent avec ces bières américaines. Bouquet fruité modéré avec un bouquet boisé de barrique de vin blanc? Palais est sec et poudreux sur une avant-garde légère de différents fruits nous emmenant vers un côté tropical. Retrouve ’the usual brett suspect <sigh>’ et avec encore un fini de barrique rappelant un léger vin blanc. Le tout garde un profil modéré citrique. Vu, vu et re-vu avec tjrs le même brett, ça en devient quasi lassant.

Bottle - light straw pour with white head that does not last. Nose of grape, brett, barnyard funk, and light citrus. Taste follows the nose with mild sourness. Vinous dry finish. Good stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
