Wicked Weed Brewing The Parking Lot Grissette
What the brewers say
"The foeder-aged tart farmhouse ale brewed inc ollaboration with our friends at Jester King Brewery. Dry-hopped with Mandarina Bavaria and Huell Melon."
What our panel thought
Aroma: "Slight herbal oolong tea with a bit of wet hay and old-leather-in-a-barn musty Brett notes. Very mild hops aroma of slight orange and pear."
Flavor: "Lots of flavor and very drinkable—slight tartness and fruit notes with hints of apple juice, pear, orange, and lemon. The tartness hits toward the finish to help clean the beer out. Big tropical Brett funk with pineapple, tangerine, peach/apricot, and herbal tea in the background. Moderate-to-strong tart character throughout that fades into the dry finish. Carbonation is spot on. Very frefreshing yet complex."
Overall: "I enjoyed the fruit complexity and sweetness with the slight funk and tartness. The finish helped to enhance the beer as well. Big fruit Brett funk but still light and refreshing. Huge tropical fruit with a bit of herbal-tea character to support. Very drinkable, reminiscent of peach champagne. Very refreshing and would love to drink this on a nice sumer day/evening."
