COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed predominantly with organic 2- row, the malt bill is rounded out with organic light munich, organic 60L crystal and caravienna. Northwest Golding and Hallertauer hops provide a pleasant hop character. Right out of primary fermentation this beer is decidedly an American Pale Ale, but as it enters secondary, a bridge to Belgium is built with a dose of Brettanomyces Bruxellensis. A 5 week maturation results in slightly dry, fruity beer with a hint of floral Brett character that will evolve over time.

Warning a bit of a gusher here! Pours straw golden with billowing white head. Aroma is grassy hops, medicinal brett, melon, and musty funk. Really nice soft carbonation and great flavors. Love it.

GABF 2013. Pours an amber orange appearance with a thin cream colored head. Tangy fruity, bretty, barnyard, tangerine/pineapple aroma. Really easy drinking and refreshing flavor with notes of peaches, flowers, earth, and a touch of vinegar. Carbonation seemed fine in the mouth.

(750ml bottle) cloudy deep gold, creamy off white head, nose of juicy citrus, Brett but not earthy, light barnyard funk, wet wood. Taste is decidedly more earthy Brett forward, apricot, white peach, aged hops, sawdust, earthy finish. Well carbonated and refreshing.

DialSquare (4987) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 6, 2013
750ml bottle from Beermongers in Portland. Amber pour with fluffy white head. Aroma is faint tart, citrus, cherry, biscuit, grass. Tastes are subdued brettt, earthy, light vinegar, red fruit peel, floral. Lightly dry oaky finish. All around pleasant enough, but never quite gets where it seems like it’s headed.

maekchu (3851) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 3, 2013
Draught at The Commons Brewery. Nice sourish "red ale" nose. Copper/orange color. Starts out great: good tart berries and something a bit funky and even vegetal / finishes with good balance and lingering scraps of fruit peels. Thin-medium body. Good sourness. The Brett does come through -- but only a little. Nice, delicate. Not overpowering in any way. Smooth. Good range of flavors.

Drank in PDX sometime last year right after purchase. I remember this being very subtle, but loud in it’s subtlety, which I personally believe to be the fine trademark of someone that knows what they’re doing. Floral and dry in the pale hopped department, splashed with a kiss of bretts to deliver a slight funk built beautifully into the beverage. Damn good.
