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)!

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAR 25, 2014
Bottle: Pours a mostly clear, bright yellow color with a soapy, bone-white head that wastes no time drifting to a thick, foamy film & collar. Huge Brett bomb on the nose, but elegantly so. Tart, sweaty pineapple with lots of cheesy, cork-y funk... Borderline sour green apple skins, faint orange notes, musty barnyard, & bale upon bale of damp hay. First sip hits with a very tart, nearly sour lemon-y & stone fruit flavor, bordering on acidic but without the intense burn. Big notes of wood, hay, horseblanket.... characteristic Brett-y funk dominates the finish along with a lingering citrus-y tartness that decrescendos into a dry, woody finish. Another great beer from Crooked Stave... labeled as a witbier but drinks more like a saison.

Pours hazy straw gold, small but firm head of foam. Smells Witty (usual Belgian spices and yeast) aroma of Brett. Strong but delightful horseblanket taste with assertive but somewhat diminutive in comparison Belgian yeast and spices. Bit of bitterness, no sweet notes. There’s the cloves..seem to pop in and out depending on the sip . Nice mouthfeel, very nice beer overall.

mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 24, 2017
[9151-20170420] 375mL bottle. Mild floral soap grass aroma. Slightly hazy, pale orange yellow body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head. Citrus-pip grass flavour. Medium body is sour. Good. (7/3/8/4/15) 3.7
(Crooked Stave Tap Takeover @ Birreria Volo, Toronto, ON)

jercraigs (10556) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2017
2017-04-20. Lightly hazy dark yellow body with a modest off-white head. 3+ Aroma is fruity, not specifically citrusy unless I look for it. Flavour has interesting lightly tangy sour citrus, tangerine/orange. Odd but pleasant. Average bodied palate, soft carbonation. Enjoyable but less prominently citrusy than I had hoped. Fairly certain this was the Spring version but not 100% sure. 7-3/7/3/16 Bottled at Birreria Volo, Toronto.

kerenmk (4802) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 11, 2017
Bottle sample. Thanks Nimrod R. Hazy blond. Perfume, some funk, a little bit of tangerine in the nose. Pleasing delicate sourness with plenty of citrus. Light body, soft fizz and delicate sour finish. Quaffable and good.

tapefuzz (615) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 13, 2017

Bottle at BD57, july 10th 2016. Hazy orange body with a small white head. Aroma is bretty and funky, citric with oranges. Taste is peppery and tart, sour, sweetened by orange and tangerine. Dusty acidic finish. Nice!

skortila (5904) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2016
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!
