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)!

From Chris. Thanks! Rating from notes. A: Cloudy lemon with a white lasting head. N: Powerful lemon and grapefruit. Ample oak and lactic acid. Some barnyard floor, cedar, and pine. T: Very, very sour. Citric and lactic acid. Orange comes to mind in terms of the sweet and sour aspect (though this version was Brett and not the orange version - in fact, I didnt know this was an offshoot of the Color Orange version until trying to find this one.) M: Light, carbed, and biting. O: Reminiscent of RR Beatification, actually, Which is definitely surprising for a witbier. I really like this one, and its the best Crooked Stave beer Ive had so far.

TheJestersBeer (2409) - SWEDEN - JAN 18, 2014
375ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy medium straw, with a white head. Fruity, spicy, funky aroma, citrus peel, hay, malt, wood, Dry, light to medium bodied, low bitterness, balanced CO2. Funky, sour, spicy taste, lemon peel, malt, earth, grass, cider apples, wood. Long, acidic, tart, wonderfully balanced finish, that ends on a refreshing, bitter citrus peel note. Delightfully drinkable, not extremely complex, but great even so. (2014-01-18)

Scopey (13323) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle thanks to Bruce. It pours lightly hazy gold with a small white head. The nose is musty, dank, barnyard, manure, sulphur, spice and fart. The taste is crisp, tart, lemon, grapefruit, sherbet, alka seltzer, some soap with a dry, citric finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Smells a bit musty, but the taste makes up for it. As with the other version no great depth, but pretty tasty.

maneliquor (3496) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2013
Bottle cheers to Colin. Pours hazy bright orange with a small, firm white head. Nose is Brett forward with pear, straw, zest, pepper, sherbert and light sugar. Taste is big and bright citrus fruits with moderate piney hops under a funky but clean citric sweet base. Mild grass and spice comes through the tarty funk. Touch sugary. Nice stuff

Bottle shared at Bruces in London - thanks to Bruce. Pours hazy yellow-gold with a wispy white cream head. Tangy citrus nose, notes of tangerine, lemon, tangy wheat. Light sweet flavor with sturdy yet understated tangy lemon, doughy wheat bread, some dry hay. Light bodied with average carbonation. Clean finish, fairly dry, with further lemony tang, slight straw bitterness, hints of lemon rind. Nice.
