COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our complex, Belgian-style wild beers are aged for several months or even years in our oak barrels. Each barrel contains a different base beer (with distinct color, flavor, body, alcohol, malt and hop character) which undergoes spontaneous and prolonged fermentation with wild critters including Brettanomyces, which is a non-spore forming genus of yeast which lives on the skins of fruit in the wild. The genus name Dekkera is used interchangeably with Brettanomyces and was discovered at the Carlsberg brewery in 1904 by N. Hjelte Claussen, who was investigating it as a cause of spoilage in English ales but which is appreciated and encouraged in certain traditional Belgian-style ales.

Well - This beer has been around a while, and as such all the strawberry flavor has left. Being said, this is a great tasting brett table beer. Very dry with a quenching tart finish on the end. Not much on the nose other than a bit of brett and some wheat, slight hint of straw. Imagine rose de gambris without the fruit, different in a positive way.

Suttree (6325) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 3, 2017
On tap at Suttrees. Reddish orange, Balsamic vinegar, and a bit of strawberry. The flavor is pretty much the same, maybe with more strawberry. Kind of lamic-like. I liked it.

Bacterial (2960) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Hazy light amber pour with a white head. Tart nose. Very sour, acetic and lactic? No fruit to be found. Maybe a strawberry seed character?

islay (2577) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 28, 2016
Majority of 9 oz. pour, on tap at Lone Oak in Eagan. Consumed on 1-24-16. Pours a clear, dull bronze with a small amount of nearly white head. Uninspiring appearance. Soft, floral but lightly sour smell. Delicate aroma. Slightly chemical smell but not in an offputting way. Nice but light, sour taste. Mineral and spicy. Chlorine flavor. Just a hint of fresh strawberry in the taste. Nice flavor. Lively in the palate. Refreshing. Overall, a nice beer but not as good as I expected given the ratings here.

Medium strawberry nose lemon funk oak a little poopy. Golden pour thin white head. Flavors of light strawberry funk Brett a little poopy lemon medium tart with mild sweetness. Good carbonation. Not worth $20 that's for sure.
