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.
