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. This second installment of the series incorporates fresh Minneola tangelos, bitter orange peel and coriander in an unfiltered, slightly tart wild ale. Orange pours a golden hue delivering tropical fruit aromas and bright orange citrus flavors with a tart earthy finish.

ROYGBIV Tasting. ~4 years old. Slightly cloudy orange. Nose is some orange zest, light funk. Nose becomes more pronounced as it warmed. Very clean with some light wheat, and orange juice flavor, light limestone. Held up nice and suprised at the juiciness of the fruit still here.

Bottle, 75cl. A gusher, pouring an unclear, orange-colored beer with some floaties. A small, off-white head on top. The aroma has a lemony touch, but theres sure more oranges. Some funky notes but its rather one dimensional. Its very effervescent, dry and full-bodied. Lots of sweet oranges in the flavor. Some funky notes too, but the oranges overpoweres most other flavors there might be. Some tropical fruits. Sure nice, but I think its too effervescent and one dimensional. 141220

Lukaduke (3123) - Gray, Maine, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle thanks to Niels ! Pours a medium golden peach color with a two finger fizzy white foam. Tons of citrus character ranging from earthy bitter pith to juicy mandarin sweetness. Really well balanced with funk, tartness and a nice juicy underlying sweetness. Carbonation is spot on and this beer is amazingly refreshing. Layers and layers of citrus deliciousness wrapped in a funky brett blanket !

750ml bottle huge thanks to adnielsen and Lukaduke! Pours cloudy pale orange with big head. Nose is lots of dusty attic wood funk and some nice grainy earthy citrus, orange zest, barn. Taste still holds nice bright citrus candy, some dusty funk, dry wood, balanced brett. Finish is dry with some chalky orange pixie sticks, tangerine, zest. Really good.

Tasted on 2/8/14 from a gusher 750mL bottle at the RBWG Grand Tasting, thanks to Aaron Nielsen for sharing. Pours cloudy light orange with a massive white head that eventually settles into thick, rocky lace. The nose is fresh orange juice with bitter orange peel, along with some baking spice. The flavor is exactly the same, with a bit of added bread malt, the full orange and baking spice come through nicely. The body is medium with some light tannin, super lively, overactive carbonation, and a long orange juice and bitter orange peel finish.
