Almanac Beer Company Saison de Brettaville

What the brewers say

Brettanomyces brings out a range of flavors and aromas, from exotic fruits to earthy funk. We added twelve different Brett strains to our dry-hopped Saison Dolores, then aged it in white-wine barrels resulting in a farmhouse ale with nuance and depth.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Very fresh and grassy with juicy orange, mango, and pineapple notes. Earthy, floral, and tart, but just a touch of funk. A wonderful complement of hops and funk that’s hard to execute, but this beer seems to do it effortlessly.”

Flavor: “A burst of pineapple, passion fruit, guava, and mango notes and a really nice juicy Brett character. The front hits with some nice acidity and tartness but that fades into a dry finish with great carbonation. Prominent amount of tartness, coupled with a healthy amount of tropical fruitiness and delicate Brett funk.”

Overall: “The funk is showcased with tropical fruit juiciness that dances throughout. Seems like there’s a ton of fruit in this beer without actual fruit. The superlatives that this beer deserves are beyond my skill as a writer. A perfect dry-hopped American farmhouse ale!”
