Description 

Humulus Terreux is the type of beer that gets our stomachs tied up in knots of excitement. It’s a chance for us to experiment with both hops and yeast, creating unique, juicy & funky flavors with just these seemingly simple, earthen ingredients. Each batch of Humulus Terreux will use a different hop varietal and one of the several strains of Brettanomyces yeasts that we have incubating in our laboratory to create a one of a kind, wildly traditional bière™. The flavor possibilities are endless when combining possible hop notes of citrus, pine, flowers or grass with the barnyard funk, earth and tropics that can come from a 100% Brettanomyces fermentation. While each beer will showcase a different, distinct character, the overall result will always be dry, funky and delightfully hoppy.

The Humulus Terreux series from The Bruery is known for its various use of hops and Brettanomyces strains, and this beer doesn’t miss on either of these two elements. The Brett is immediately apparent in the aroma with characteristic cherry pie and leather elements along with a little barnyard note for character. The hops are citrusy and herbal -- complementing the Brett character very well. The Brett adds a light acidity and when combined with the moderate-high carbonation, it excites and refreshes the palate. The finish is slightly tart and carbonic with light citrusy hops and leather. This Brett beer does everything well – Brett character, hops, balance and a little funk make for a refreshing and near-perfect brew.
