What the brewers say

“A collaborative 100 percent Brettanomyces-fermented farmhouse ale brewed with our friends at B. Nektar. Made with Michigan apples and Amarillo hops.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Sweaty Brett funk, citrus, pineapple, pear. Fun blend of horse blanket and apples with a touch of honey beneath. A floral and funky combination.”

Flavor: “The first impression was some barnyard funk, yet this is followed by a subtle quality of pear and apple notes, which come out more in the flavor than the aroma. Very dry and almost fluffy (for lack of a better word) light mouthfeel because of the carbonation. The Brett has had some time to develop and blend with the honey that is completely fermented out and just barely detectable.”

Overall: “Complex fruit and Brett funk while being light and very drinkable. This beer feels like you’re sitting on a fence rail on a French farm. I would love to session this beer on a warm summer day. Incredibly well made.”
