COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We named Amasa after Amasa Bushnell, the first farmer to officially grow hops in Sonoma County in 1858 along with his hop growing partner Otis Allen. Their original hopyard was in the Green Valley region of Sonoma County near the small town of Sebastopol. It soon became evident that between the climate, soil, and other factors hops could easily be farmed and thrive in Sonoma County. Amasa is an extra dry domesticated wild ale brewed and bottled to be enjoyed now, or aged. Ringing in at just 4.5% ABV, Amasa is not only sessionable, but it still retains a lot of flavor. The use of Brettanomyces yeast in the bottle conditioning process lends a rustic characteristic to the beer. If aged, many of the unique yeast qualities in the beer will become even more evident.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2017 Yes well I had this somewhat more than 3 years after bottling, and the brett had its way with it to make it very funky in aroma and taste. Despite the claims, ageing is always somewhat of a gamble.better 2 days after.

25cm of eggwhite-yellowish head over a thumb of faintly veiled, pale golden beer with Grünstich ; shards of lace. "WIld" yeast nose with an outspoken Brett character. There’s a just-not-fruity hoparoma clearly present as well, and somewhere a hint at Indochinese herbs and cocos. Bitterish-bretty-citruspeel. Moulded citruspeel too, but definitely not disturbingly. Finish has a bit of sparadrap and inevitable traces of floormop. Light body, very attenuated, carbonation all knocked out. Better than most of these wild tries.Many thanks to Vinnie, the RR crew, and of course, the Vermeersch emissionaries!!

Thank you Mathieu87 + PriorL for the effort! 500 ml. bottle sampled @ Samson en Geert Bierproef Avond. 071415 - possibly BBF date since that this should be a 4+ years old. Hazy citrus, little white head. Nose is huge esters, grass, soapy, zest, low Belgian esters. Taste is citrus, yeasty, lemon, Belgian esters, very green raw esters, grass, soapy. Strangely BE, low Duvel yeast & esters vibe, age doesn’t show that heavily. Body is esters, grass, yeast. Pretty decent Belgian Ale. Brett must have definitely helped it with the aging process, to be honest I am not really getting brett here.

Delikatnie przegazowane. Fajne bretty, bardzo lekkie i pijalne, wytrawne. Mógłbym pić na szklanki.

Bottle shared at Chmielarnia. Nice Belgian style nose, spices, acidic, soil, funk, floral. Taste is nicely balanced between bitterness, sweetness and light sourness. Very classy.

Bottle in Seattle. Thanks to Andrew for hauling this back up from Cali. Bit of a foam gush, but nothing bad. Nice white foamy cap on a very soft lemony yellow body. Fresh, fruity grass nose: soft and inviting. Light fruity sip, pale yeasty ale, soft touch of drying brett is fantastic. Fizzy carb, grassy flavors throughout. Warm, scene-placing beer. I really like this, wish I had it available all the time.

Level 42 bottleshare. Thanks to Paul. Light haze on this pale gold beer, thin pale cream colour head. Palate is airy, semi dry and has decent fine carbonation. Light brett. Mild lemon and milder orange. Trace of citric peel. Light.dry bitterish finish. Standard stuff that is a tad dry.
