UPDATED: SEP 20, 2019 Bought at Smart Time Food for $8.99, St. Bretta is a citrus wildbier fermented in oak foeders crafted by Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project.
The scent of oranges, lemon, and funk are felt upon the nose. The appearance is an orange amber with a minimal white head. The alcohol content is 5.5%.
A citrus, sour, and tart bite of lemon and oranges greet you followed by an acidic overture on the mouthfeel. As the sour and tart mellows, the orange flavor shifts into a juicy blood orange bouquet. Lemon provides an underlying, smooth tone. Brettanomyces yeast delivers a moderate funk to the blood orange profile and slightly dries the finish. Clove peppers the comprehension and compliments the lemon and funky yeast complexion. Oak accents the lemon and acidic characters.
St. Bretta is a ravishing citrus wildbier. The pungent Brettanomyces to the blood orange, lemon, and acidity combine into an outstanding sour ale. The citrus, sour, and tart take is puckering in the beginning and vibrant. The blood oranges and Brettanomyces blend beautifully together. I loved drinking this brew and cherished every single drink. This is an excellent libation for fans of sour beer that want their beer to be sour.
Cheers. Prost. Drink for the love of beer.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2019 Batch 2, 2013. Going on 6 years old!
Pours a hazy pale gold with one heck of a nice head of foam, lacing is very good.
The smell has an awesome Brett presence, oak and some citrus. And tartness.
All 4 components in the smell are in the taste with the citrus coming through on the milder side. And this sure is dry! Tartness is what I would call, at an easy to cope with level.
Body is on the lower side of medium and the carbonation is lively but in a good way.
