St. Bretta is our 100% Brettanomyces Whitebier that was just released this week! Not only is St. Bretta an evolution of Wild Wild Brett Orange, but also it will be ever-changing depending on the fresh citrus available that season. For our spring release we decided to brew St. Bretta with fresh Minneola Tangelo. Each seasonal release of St. Bretta will have a diverse range of citrus fruit added to keep the beer fresh and exciting (the summer release was brewed with blood oranges)!

On tap @ Beertemple. Small sample. The aroma has citrus, funk, flowers. Light hazy, yellow coloured beer with a thin, white head. The taste is light sour and has citrus fruits, funk, dust and is greatly refreshing and balanced. Well done!

Tap @ Beer Temple, small sample, Putting it under this entry, as the beer arrived early June, so Im guessing its the Spring version (and is now confirmed by BeerTemple). Will relocate when necessary. Hazy pale yellow color, medium frothy head. Aroma of citrus, funk, grainy wheat, bit white wine almost. Soft sourness in taste, bit sweet as well. All perfectly balanced and utterly refreshing as all the Crooked Staves I have had so far. Really great stuff once again.

Enjoyed on tap at the Crooked Stave Taproom in Denver, CO while sampling some brews. Appearance is a cloudy gold with a moderate bubbly white head. Aroma of light stinky cheese and citrus, smells delicate. Taste is great, goes down with orange peel / citrus notes with a faint but present sourness that is fantastic. Really quality choice stuff.

December 31st, 2013 - New Years Eve commands special attention, eyes glued to the television set in anticipation of the ball, and a long night of drink before that. For the transition to 2013 to 2014 I untucked some the rarer beers in my collection, and started the night with Crooked Staves St. Bretta Whitebier. The color is a grainy, soupy light brown leather, completely opaque with all the bits and bobs from the secondary fermentation, and topped with only a small, white head. The aroma is strange at first, but gradually falls into place. Lime and black pepper greet the nose, followed by paprika. Theres also a fresh Mexican food quality, most closely resembling an avocado, or lettuce or cilantro. As a San Diego resident this all appeals deeply to me, even if Im confusing beer for food. The flavor is the other mismatched sock, crazy and eccentric, leading with that funky fresh brettanomyces tang, leaving enough room for a wit wheat taste. The aftertaste is far more complex (and long) than the other flavor components, ending with long echo of oak, and a sourness more akin to a Flemish Sour Ale, both mild and sweet, and garnished with a little fresh lemon juice. This is the first of three Crooked Stave beers for the evening, and it tastes like a whipcrack introduction, priming the tongue and salivary glands for more sour to come.
