Wiley Roots Galaxy DH Funk Yo Couch

What the brewers say

“Tart farmhouse saison fermented with wild captured Brettanomyces, dry hopped with more than 1 pound per barrel of Australian Galaxy hops. Winner of a gold medal at the 2017 GABF.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Very fruity hops and ester aroma with passion fruit, peach, pear, and apple. Behind that’s there’s tangerine, lemon, and a touch of herbal. Spicy phenols, light Brett funk. Slight leather.”

Flavor: “Very juicy hops flavor with a mix of tropical and citrus. Moderately low sweetness with moderately high sour that fades into a dry finish. The body supports the beer with a malt character that seems a bit toothier than others in the category. Light Brett funk and tart. Lingering aftertaste of sweet fruit balanced with light tartness. Acidity is masterful placed to accentuate the fruit flavors from the hops.”

Overall: “Almost a fruit-cocktail blend with some funk, but it all finishes nice and dry and drinkable. A fantastic beer that delivers an ultimately satisfying hops character with a beautifully crafted mixed-fermentation funky farmhouse base.”
