COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wild yeasts may be historically important to brewing, but they’re also very hard to tame. Fortunately, pFriem loves a challenge. Our Bretta is fully domesticated with amazing aromas like pineapple, peach, flavors of orange zest and fennel and a tangy finish that will have you surrendering to another one in no time.

Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 25, 2017
Bottle from Beermongers. A: Cloudy gold with a foamy white head. N: Soap. clove, grapefruit, hay, barns, leather, tobacco, and some lemon. T: Very funky, lightly sweet. M: Light body, no alcohol, foamy carbonation. O: Very much what it says. Similar to aged Orval, although the Brettanomyces has completely overtaken this at this point. I like it, but it’s intense.

On tap at Beer Baron Pleasanton. It pours a hazy pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma is flowery with a little lemon and hints of hay-like funk and alcohol. The flavor has some lemon, hay and chardonnay. A bit under carbonated, and so it suffers from a lackluster mouth feel as a result. Lots of herbals and flowers in the finish. Ok.

(Bouteille à la source): Du pain épicé, des bretts fermiers, légèrement savonneux et aérien avec une barrique doucement asséchante.

2016-04-11, draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver, 7-3-7-3-13=34
Cloudy pale blond color with generous head. The aroma is very funky, deep, nice. The flavor, spicy and funky, comes through with vegetable notes too, a bit too bitter in the final.
In conclusion, it has a lot of character, but it’s quite chaotic.

2016-02-05, bottle, tasting at Eugene’s, 8-3-7-4-16=38
Cloudy blond color. Nice harmonious aroma of funky yeast, a bit fruity, wood sap, fresh almond. Smooth, funky flavor, a bit woody, lightly sweet.
Delicious.

Dogbrick (13388) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Sample during the "Hoppin’ On Deck" tasting on 05/27/2016. Cloudy straw color with a medium thick white head that diminishes gradually to a film. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of tropical fruit, funky yeast and malt. Medium body with flavors of brett yeast, funky fruit and biscuit malt. The finish is funky and fruity with an herbal yeast aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2016 Buckeyeboy provided this gem recently... Slightly hazy light golden with a big pillowy white head.. big brett makes me think pear and orange with dusty dry hay/barn... tons of carbonation and still very dry but very drinkable. Thanks Jeremy!!

375ml bottle next to the brux. Pours out straw color topped with a white head. nose is big brett funk spice and sourdough. Taste is more of the heavy brett spice and some grass.

DuffMan (10548) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 15, 2016
Bottle, shared with the brewery boys. Opaque very pale yellow with a massive head that retains like a crown. Big bretty nose, lightly funky but equally floral as well. The palate is light with nicely attenuated pale malts and heaps of delicate hop and brett character in great balance. Moderately bitter, dry finish. A beautiful showcase for brett, gulpable.

Oakes (18209) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2016
Very pale and hazy, big brett aroma. Nice light brett taste. Pale malts, light, mellow bitterness and hop character. Very quaffable.

Ferris (16106) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 12, 2016
Draft - Light funk, citrus and some stone fruit. Cloudy yellow with a small white head. Much as it smells. Very light and refreshing. Nice.
