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)!

Bottle, big thanks to Jared! Don’t necessarily agree with the classification, but nevermind...awesome beer. Hazy light rust orange, thin white head. Peach, earthy pineapple, sour apple, nice hoppy bitterness, hay, and very lively. Lighter to medium body with zippy carbonation. Very good.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Floral and dusty funky base, moderate acidity, light lemony and spicy notes, and a nice dry finish. Good stuff.

Pour from a bottle is a nice cloudy golden amber with a small white head. Aroma is a little sour but has a few hints of fruit. Taste is nice and sour with a little citrus zing that leaves a dry after taste.

12-ish oz bottle (12.7?). Extremely funky smell, very heavy on the brett. Taste is similarly funky, but mouthfeel is nice and light. Heavy on the citrus, I think. Really nice.

Westmeister (2129) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Thanks wchesser! Pours a clear golden orange with thin white head. Smell is somewhat of a strange doughiness with orange citrus splashes and a bit of floral notes. Taste is comes of as light, crisp, touch vinegar, orange, bretty. Palate is a bit thin, but overall this is a lightly tart refreshing beer with not a terrible amount of complexity. One negative would be that this was perhaps a bit better in its prime. Still love trying whatever Crooked Stave can crank out.

jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Hazy yellow-orange with good, foamy, white head, chunky lacing / Nose of citrus & tropical fruit, brett, cream / Light body, spritzy, watery, good balance and bitterness on finish / Thin flavors of apple, lemon, tangelo, straw, light horse blanket / Fine, but doesn’t live up to the excellent nose.

HIGHB4LL (837) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Wilbur’s. Appearance: finger white head, cloudy straw yellow, light lacing, film of head resides. Aroma: citrus, earthy yeast, grapes, brett, wine, oak, berry on exhale. Palate: light body, light carbonation, tart, dry finish. Taste: light sweet fruit into fruity tartness and even sour. Overall, awesome beer, citrus almost suggests hoppiness but not really any to speak of. Super drinkable and refreshing, unique and delicious.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo.
Pours cloudy golden with a ring of head. Smells of vinegar, lemon, orange and wheat. Lots of citrus flavour in the middle and in the finish. Wheaty character. Quite sour. 2014-07-12
