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.

(Batch 072616) Honey, brett, sweet grain, oaky, grassy, Chardonnay aromas and flavours. Real gentle brett influence. There is a real pleasant sweetness to balance out the acidity. Off dry mouthfeel, biting acidity, leading to a persistent acidic, fruity finish.

Bottle. Hazy yellow. Aroma is lemon, apples, grapes, plums, wood, funk. Taste is sour with lots of fruitiness, aftertaste is elegant funk and wood. Amazing brew.

An elegant wild ale. To me it reminds more of a sour blond than classic american wild beer. But it is balanced, complex and nice.

Bitterbill (2113) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - OCT 17, 2017
From Sep 2006 Poured from 750ml( room temp-Batch 002) a cloudy lightish gold with a huge head of foam that shrank slowly leaving lots of lacing and a solid layer for the entire session. The smell is *all* spicy with notes of yeast, orange, corriander, and a whole lot of funk! The taste is *hugely* sour up front. Almost to the point of knocking my socks off but there's also the yeast, orange, and corriander I mentioned in the smell and there's some peppery notes, hoppy bitterness, and even some malt sweetness .. man.. this one sure is complex as all hell and a literal delight to sip on. I'm glad I have another bottle and plan on cellaring it for a spell. Bottom line: A superb American Wild Ale, in my book. My hat's off to Russian River for, once again, travelling down the off the beaten track!

375ml bottle (thx, L.-P. B.!). Bottled on 2015-06-19. Pours a clear pale golden with a white head. Aroma is bretts, some wine barrel notes. Similar taste. Not very complex, but pleasant and refreshing.
