After long years of the beer community discussing hops to exhaustion, yeast is finally getting a glimpse of the spotlight following what seemed to be a lengthy Batman-like existence: outcast, living in the shadows, not getting enough credit for his work. However, the importance of fermentation is no news to Chad from Crooked Stave, a.k.a. the king of Hipsters, who has been fondling with various fermenting agents for longer than most people have been drinking. So it was that on a beautiful yet excruciatingly hungover Wednesday Mr Yakobsen came to Amager to bombard us simpletons with his knowledge on all things yeasty, and especially, bretty. Due to stubbornness from our end, we still insisted the brew carried a motherf#&@ of hops, despite intents of a brett forward beer. The answer to what ingredient won the battle lies within this bottle. But in our opinion, we are all winners.

fidelis83 (2364) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 22, 2017
Hazy pale gold pour with a very tall, chunky slightly off-white head with a slightly annoying, but pretty retention. Aroma is full of citrus, spicy and spicy citrus, hops, some sharp tropical fruit, nice fruity, green leaf and wet blanket funk, a little toast and just a hint of toffee. Flavor is big on citrus, fruity funk, a little mustiness, spicy hops, passion fruit, a little tart melon, stone fruit and some wet limestone. Very nice, good balance of funk, fruit and hops, with a hint of malt thrown in.

wiadran (189) - POLAND - MAR 19, 2017
aroma yeast, a bit of fresh lemon juice, sweet bread-background
very pale, foggy, big white head, long lasting.
first its sweet a bit, bread like, yeasty, then sour a bit with long lasting bitter-citrus hoppy ending
body medium, quite high for the power, carbonation fizzy, texture very pleasant, a bit creamy.
very nice one in the style. fresh, refreshing, very pleasant to drink and quite well build. quite complex taste

mike_77 (6272) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2017
Pale yellow colour with fluffy head. Aroma is strong with funky, bretty yeast. Also some tropical fruit. Tastes sharp, funky and very dry. Has some light citrus elements too.

mcberko (16652) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 5, 2017
500mL bottle, pours a large white head. Aroma is very fragrant, with lots of farmhouse funk, with secondary notes of citrusy hops. Flavour is very spicy in the yeast department, with aggressive farmhouse funk, and fairly potent dry citrusy hops. Finishes dry hoppy and farmhouse funky. Really good.

johndoughty (5311) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle. Blond with a small head. Sour bitterness with a fruity background. Medium body. I am sure that this is probably a good example of this style but the style just doesnt appeal to me. As with all their beers the label is lovely.

TBone (17085) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 14, 2017
Bottled 500ml (Beergium)
Hazy yellow color, small white head. Aroma has bretta, horseblanket and citrus. Light to medium-bodied. Bretta dominates the front. Citrus, gooseberry hoppyness in the finish. Clean well-brewed, funky and even enjoyable if you like bretta.

Medicinal-ish brett tightly connected with wonderful floral/fruity hops. Hop is the king here but brett adds an interesting under-layer.
