COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wild Wild Brett is a series of R&D beers created to showcase the versatility of Brettanomyces, a yeast found naturally all over the world. Historically considered ”wild yeast”, Brett is responsible for 100% of the fermentation in the bottle you hold. Green, the fourth installment of this series is our nod to absurdly hopped beers. Showcasing the Australian Galaxy hop, W.W.B.G. uses 4 lbs of hops per barrel with dank tropical fruit hop characteristics dominating the flavor and aroma.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Bottle shared at MuckFest 3 - Saturday Edition. Pours a richly hazed dulled golden hue, a touch darker in the body with frothy cakey offwhite head. Thick film, laces well. Aromas are rich green dank hops, touches of citrus, weeds and florals. Firm bretty presence is funky and cobwebs laden. Dry, funky, straw. Initial is more grapefruit brett slanted, bretty malts, touches of apple, pear, and richer green Galaxy hops. Dry and bitter after a sweeter touch of honey, doughy malts, gentle spice and yeast. Dry earthy and bitter hops, Galaxy, stick around and dry out into the finish. Dry and bretty and richly green fresh hops. Cobwebs, dry earthy hops bitter up the finish. Solid, with lingering dryness. Hops add a nice layer.

Poured from a bottle thanks to Kevin. Spicy, fruity, bready malts, slight citrus, and earthy notes. Solid Brett character, horse, spicy, earthy, and amazing. Great beer.

deyholla (12021) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Bottle thanks to Aaron! Pours a near clear orange gold with a white head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a good amount of pine with a hint of backing earthy citrus and a hint of a Brett note. Flavor begins with earthy grassy and citrus note with a bit of bitter citrus towards the finish.

Thanks to drabmuh for sharing this bottle. Served in a SAVOR wine glass. Bottle 487/1368 Pours a cloudy golden with a large white head and a good amount of spotty lacing on the way down. The nose carries some nice tropical fruits along with some orange and grapefruit peel. Somewhat earthy in the background. Most of the character seems to be coming from the Galaxy rather than Brett. Flavor has a nice hop component that’s very fresh. A bit leafy as well. Nice citrus rind and light earth behind the hops. A touch of Brett there as well. Light body with moderate acidity and good carbonation. Light-medium bitterness leads to a dry finish. Nice and interesting, though I would have liked a little more Brett to play against the dry-hop character.

Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - APR 9, 2012
Cloudy lemon color, very peppery on the nose and tongue. Bitter earthy flavor, definitely English and maybe some New Zealand hop flavors. Some onion flavors, spicy again, herbal, maybe some rye flavor.

Bottle. Pours a very heady light golden color. The head is light tan mostly white color and stands at least 3 fingers tall, slowly settles and leaves a sticky laces as it does. Brett floral notes upfront in the nose with a touch of fruit sweetness. Medium mouthfeel. The brett floral type note is present initially but gives way to a nice fruity note and then the bret floral is back and stays for awhile. The hops due impart a nice flavor that I think offsets the brett notes pretty well. Very little alcohol notes. Overall, pretty tasty if brett floral is your flavor.

Pour from a bottle and thanks to Aaron for sending this treat. Golden orange in color with a billowy white head. Aromas of brett and hops. Nice clean citrusy hop flavors with lemon and tangerine. Nice balance of the forward brett character. The finish dries out really well. Really good unique beer in my book.

crossovert (13724) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 24, 2012
750 ml botte. #218/1368. It pours a semi-hazy orange with a big fuffy white head. The smell is great, tropical fruit notes along with a biting brett scent with medicine, barnyard, and "funk". The taste is hoppy, bretty and earthy. Almost in equal amounts, there is a subtle sweetness. An interesting brew.

natejgood (524) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Pours a hazy golden color with a large off-white head that craters slowly as it goes down. Aroma of floral hops and citrus fruit. Cream, slightly sweet with a nice taste of citrus and hops, but not very bitter. Nice hope flavor without being over-hopped. Very drinkable. I’m going to have to try this again when the weather warms up, as it seems like a good deck beer.
