COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Solenna pairs the fruitiness of a traditional Belgian yeast strain with the subtle spicy character of Brettanomyces and the floral notes of German hops. Notes of candy apple, cinnamon, and fresh-cut grass give way to a dry finish and firm lingering bitterness.

Ernest (7439) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2016
Bottle (Aug 24, 2016 bottling). Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), with notes of clove, plastic (those little "army men" toys), dirt/compost, autumn leaves, carpet, metal. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, spicy, slightly unclean. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Surprisingly poor...rough and dirty aroma is not at all enticing (perhaps from a poor Brett strain or poor fermentation technique), and while the flavor balance is mostly ok it seems overspiced with something (maybe it doesn?t contain adjuncts but it sure smells like it...like a lot of real cloves, not yeast-like clove-ish notes) and the aftertaste is a bit dirty too. A certified drain pour. Two more strikes from recent Funkwerks samples, guess I?ll resume ignoring this brewery again. Sigh.
