as someone once said "lips of faith is where great beers go to die". i didnt mind the NB brett beer. i took the last few swigs and added equal parts fresh squeezed lime juice and it was ne of the best beergaritaís iíve ever had.

I thought that the Brett Beer had very little brett character. Didnít impress me at all. Mo Betta Bretta was quite good though.

I donít think so. The NB version used Sorachi Ace hops (which is very distinct), as well as a couple others. I donít know what LA used, but the beer doesnít showcase the hops at all.

I havenít had the NB version yet, but Iíve had the new version of Mo Betta a few times, and it is actually a pretty solid summer beer right now. Absolutely no funk or brett fruitiness yet. Iím sure itíll improve quite a bit with time. No idea if the NB version will, though.

Ericís Sour Peach (before they bottled it in the 22ozers), Le Terroir (again before they bottled it in the 22ozers, though I admit, it was still pretty good in the bombers), and Old La Folie in the 750ís were all very great beers. Theyíve just tried too hard to hit the mainstream with those beers now, and with pasteurization have tighter QC, but the wonderful bottle variation is now gone.

Interesting thread this far. Iíd say that both beers have Yeast character but the NB feels dead while mo Betta seems to Carry more fruitiness. Both have a strange earthy/savory thing going on that is somewhat unpleasant. Also, they are two different colors..

That NB/LA Brett beer was the worst beer Iíve had from either brewery.

Probably didnít take in secondary. If it has no Brett now, itís unlikely it will spontaneously develop. Brett is pretty fast acting.

I think itís hilarious that Lost Abbey releases a beer that should have brett and it doesnít and beers the shouldnít have it do....
