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.

Ktwse (3661) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2016
Pours hazy yellow with low to medium white head. Aroma of green grapes, green apples, grass, bretta, gooseberries. Taste is mild tart with an almost oak aged chardonnay buttery mouthfeel, light funk in the finish. Light and smooth body with soft carbonation. Very drinkable and refreshing but I had expected a slightly more sour and tarty taste.

Kinz (3696) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Backlog, from the Funkatorium. Poured hazy golden. Aroma was brett driven funk, some fruitiness, a touch of cheddar, and crackers. Flavor matched. Only slightly tart, which isn’t surprising really. And yeah, you could compare it to a NZ SB and not be far off.

Cybercat (4744) - Georgia, USA - NOV 3, 2015
If you get this in a bottle, be sure to have a thirsty towel handy, as my sample fizzed quite a bit. When it settles down, it pours translucent apricot with a rather thick eggshell head. Aroma presents delectable sour grape, pineapple, mango and fresh malt tones. Fruit is the main player in the flavor, again with pineapple (I love pineapple!), mango and grape, fairly sour with a malty undertone and a dry wine finish. Mouthfeel features decent body and OK fizz. A serene wild ale - if that is not an oxymoron.
