COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A solid dose of light pilsner malt along with a variety of similarly undermodified German-style malts gave us a crisp, clean base to work with. Then we got it All Funked Up. Generous additions of Apollo and Vanguard hops created a substantial flavor of citrus peel and floral spice as well as plenty of IBUs for such a mild malt bill. Ale yeast was then used for primary fermentation before adding a blend of three strains of Brettanomyces. These superattenuating little bugs were allowed to thoroughly ferment out many complex sugars and leave behind their characteristic (and very apparent) wild and funky flavors. After about four and a half months, we added a fresh addition of whole leaf Amarillo hops that spent about a week imparting a citrusy, almost candylike flavor. Finally, we moved the beer to a bottle for a final fermentation that cleaned and carbonated this beer to be ready for the glass.

weihenweizen (4111) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - AUG 23, 2017
On tap at HopCat Lexington. Clear light Amber with big off-white head. Aroma is herbal hops, medium body, medium carbonation, and thick small-bubble lacing. Taste is herbal hops and tart funk. Does not meld for me.

fiulijn (21214) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 12, 2017
Bottle from The Gull, North Vancouver
Strong Brett character, but also too yeasty, too dirty; very astringent; bitter orange peel, and foot.
Messy and overly expensive beer.

650ml bottle @ the office. Pours a cloudy golden straw colour with a thin white head. Nose is tons of brett funk with a citrus twist. Flavour is dry and funky brett with a mild hop character.

Ferris (16499) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2017
Bottle - Lots of funky Brett notes. Cloudy gold with a small white head. Unusual tropical notes, bready sweetness and a long Brett finish.

Oakes (18828) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2017
Hazy, light tan. On the nose, lots of brett. Smells nice. Some bright citrusy hop as well. Quite appetizing. Bitter, bretty, has a lot of carbonation and that knocks out your palate a bit, certainly the sweetness. So not so much balance on the palate as on the aroma.

mcberko (18956) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 10, 2017
750mL bottle, pours a cloudy pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out plenty of brett funk, light citrus hops and biscuity malt. Flavour is loaded with brett funk, citrus hops, and biscuity malt. Very funky and brett, finishing rather abrasively hoppy and funky. Nice stuff.
