COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who’s afraid of the "big bad BRETT?" We’ll tell you who: winemakers! Because of our close proximity to several hundred wineries, we often get winemakers visiting our brewery. (After all, it takes a lot of great beer to make great wine!) Because we use 100% Brettanomyces yeast to ferment Sanctification, most winemakers will only smell the glass, and only a very few will venture to taste the beer. They think the Brettanomyces will attach to their clothing and end up in their winery. A simple solution was offered: keep a smudge pot burning at the door of our brewery so they can burn their clothes when exiting, but even that was not enough. After giving it more thought, we concluded that winemakers think Brettanomyces might scar their taste buds and possible even permeate their skin? Either way, Sanctification is one of the most unique beers you will ever taste! It was fermented with 100% Brettanomyces, rather than the traditional Saccharomyces.

Garrold (5265) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2016
Bottle, by way of a trade. Hazy, dark straw colour. Ring and film of dense, white head. Nose has soft, sweet brett. Preserved lemon. Lemon pip. Dry grain. Some vanilla malts. Taste is lemon juice sweet, and lemon zest bitter. Clean and crisp mouthfeel. Soft and sweet brett on the finish. Very nice.

Bottle. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of manure, funky, slight touch of sesam, citrus and stonefruits, light minerals. Taste is light sour loads if funk and bretty character, stonefruits which suits it. Good drinkablilty.

Stald og efterladenskaber gemt væk i høet, er hvad der først kommer på tale. Beskeden brett, men sprudlende, delikat og forførende. En vårunge af en bajer!

2.5+ years old. Bottled 05/30/2014. F*ck this got better with age. NOSE = straight up oaked lambic. TASTE = same + big Brett & lemon funk. Another that I’m VERY glad I aged.

Niesamowite rzeczy zrobiły tu bretty. Mega owocowe. Ananas i brzoskwinia w smaku znakomite. Być może najciekawszy profil Brettów spośród wszystkich RR.

luttonm (6271) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Bottle in Seattle. All thanks to Alberto, who unfortunately couldn’t carry this one back to Europe either. Soft cloudy yellow, soft white foam. Great Russian River aroma, this is everything I missed since they pulled out of Washington. Sweet, brett and chardonnay. Soft tart brett, smooth, fairly sweet. Clean, mild. Very tasty, refined, but also a bit calm in the storm of today’s American brett beers and sours. I like it a lot.
