a – Pours a hazy, deep yellow orange color with one finger of fluffy white head.
s – Smells of oranges, A touch of brett, wheat, and bready malts. Brett and oranges are pretty weak. Nose isn’t bad at all, but kind of muted.
t – Tastes of bready malts, citrus, oranges, fruity malts, wheat, and very light funk, but not much. A little stronger and better than the nose, but still not much brett.
m – Medium body and low to moderate carbonation, the body is super smooth and creamy.
o – Overall a decent beer, but expected much better out of these breweries, and a bit underwhelming. For a name like “Brett Beer” it did not have a ton of brett, and the nose was very muted.
Serving type: bottle split in NB Tulips
A: Hazy straw color with orange hue. Small white head that fades quickly
S: Quite tart with some noticeable fruit character, Some good green apple and lemon notes, along with a mild barnyard funkeness. Not sure what a Lychee is or smell like so cant compare it to that.
T: Lots of great lactic tartness and fruit flavors. Definitely some green apples, and lemons. The oak is there, mainly in a tannic and mildly funky form. Decent amount of brett funk and dryness.
M: A puckering tartness along with a dry finish, medium body, and moderate carbonation.
D:Great beer, nice balance, and complexity with a touch of sourness. I would buy this again for sure.
A: Orange/copper color, about one finger of white foam that falls pretty quickly
S: Spice, yeast, Brett. Smells kinda like La Folie with out all the tart
T: Tastes like a less tart and less flavorful La Folie, Could the ingredients be similar? Not a bad beer but much to be desired
M: Medium body, not too much carbonation.
D: Not really “wild” but not to bad, just wish it had more funk to it.
Serving type: bottle pored in to Brooklyn Tulip at 49 degrees. Split with Ashley
Appearance: Honey Color, Light creamy lace on the glass.
Smell: Malty aroma with hints of pepper and grass
Taste: Malty, light pepper with a touch of citrus maybe pineapple. Some grassy notes come in as it heats up
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium to full body with tingly carb
Drinkability: Would drink again due to not really remembering everything from this one. Nice.
Serving type: Bomber split in Brooklyn tulip at 49Degrees. Split with Ashley
A: Pours a golden hue, clear, and a light 1/4 finger worth of head. A good amount of carbonation coming off the bottom of the glass, light lacing as it recedes.
S: Nose is of green apples, Lemongrass, a very light acidic note, and in the end I’m getting some Belgian yeast (although I know it’s French yeast).
T: Taste is a bit tart. Tartness is smoothed over by earthy yeast and citrus notes. I’m not keen to the passion fruit/prickly pear in this saison, but I’m definitely picking out some citrus and pear notes.
M: Medium- bodied, light and refreshing, as well as perfectly carbonated. Great hot summer day drink, but at 8.5% ABV, it was well disguised.
