COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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)!

Cool little bottle thanks to Eric. Pours out a hazy straw topped with a fluffy head. Nose is Brett oak barrel some lemon and orange zest. Taste is more of the heavy Brett oak barrel and a nice citrus end.

Bottle at lbutikken - thanks to Morten... Clear yellow/golden - white head. Nice fresh citrus. Acidic wheaty. Nice bretty. Light peppery. Clean, crispy and refreshing. Light hoppy. Lovely.

Poured into a perfect pint. 3.25 A: Murky yellow brown color. Two fingers of foamy white head. Retention is below average, but a short ring of lacing is left. 3.75 S: Earthy type brett funkiness. Its not the dankest of stank, but its still quite nice. Rotten woodiness with forest funk. Primarily lemony citrus though orange does show up. Lightly spicy and Im not sure if Im picking up coriander or not. 3.5 T: The taste is very woody, which is probably a combination of the fermentation vessel and the brett. Forest funkiness with wildflower herbalness. A light lemony pucker, but Im not picking up much in terms of orange. Fairly dry with neutral wheat. 3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Very lightly creamy. 3.25 D: Its okay for what it is, but its hard to beat the standard formula for a witbier. Still, worth a try. ★ 854 characters DavoleBomb, Jul 19, 2013

Their distinctive 12 ounce bottle I got at the brewery last summer and poured into one of their glasses. Dated 2014 Batch 1. Lots of haze in here. Orange golden with a nice one + finger white head. The first thing I smell is the brett and also lemons and soft malts. The brett is also tasted first and is prominent. Tart citrus fruit. Lemons and oakiness and at times this resembles a funky lemon shandy. Nicely done.

Bottle from a Waterbury Craft Beer Cellar. Thanks Ben. Aroma: awesome Aroma of barnyard from the brett mixed with lemon, orange, maybe some red fruits. App: clear golden with small to minimal white head. Taste and palate: medium body, fizzy carbonation, dry well balanced sour finish that fades away progressively. Overall: wow that is treat for the palate. That went down pretty fast. I wish I had more than one. One thing I would to improve it is a better appearance like a better head and add some lacing.

375ml bottle shared by Brad. Nice citrus tinged sour aroma. The tangelo really comes through. Perfect body, carbonation. Bitingly sour. Lemon, lime, tangelo. Pronounced vinegar sour tones. Pretty enjoyable beverage.

Apperance similar to lemon juice mostly cloudy. No head retention holds however lacing surrounds the glass. This thing has great typical Brett character the aromatics or musty with very strong citrus lemon aromatics. The tart aromatics are not as strong while drinking def not a wit interesting interpretation.

malrubius (2722) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle from Brewfest. Must be from last spring (2014 Batch 5), Im guessing. Orangy hazy no head. Funky horseballs and tart tropical fruit aroma. Mild fruity sweetness quite tart and farmhouse hay and woody bitterness. Basically flat, not much of a witbeer left. Like a gueuze that didnt age particularly well. Will have to revisit if I can get it fresh.

Crisp, completely clear amber and copper coloured body with a thinnish, single centimetre tall large-bubbled tan head that fades very fast. Aroma of sour grapes, alcohol, oak, brett, lemons and a bit more pungent yeast notes - nice and mouthwatering, for sure. Light-bodied; Sharp pungent flavour of sour grapes and cherries with a strong kick of citrus and dry oak right afterwards. The sour flavour hits right behind the ears and shows a touch of malt and body on the finish with a little unfinished candy sugar noticeable as well. Overall, a very nicely done beer, however classified wrong on here - this is easily a sour/wild ale instead of a belgian white, but regardless, a solid beer with a nice profile and even better complexity that persists throughout the sample. I sampled this 37,5 cL split bottle purchased from Small Batch Liqours in Denver, Colorado on 08-June-2014 for US$5,99 sampled in celebration of running a marathon today in Maryland on 29-November-2014. Batch 1: 2014 // Purchased 08-June-2014 // Sampled: 29-November-2014
