De La Brett
Urban Family Brewing
A Note on This Beer
If we could synch your email up with smell-o-vision for today’s beer, the description wouldn’t even be necessary. You’d want to try it for the nose alone.
New Zealand hops are on the rise, pushing the likes of Centennial and Citra to the wayside. But the innovators at Urban Family Brewing are taking things one-step further by mixing these hops with trendy Brett yeast.
Released just last month, Urban Family Brewing’s De La Brett is a bottle conditioned dry hopped Pale Ale brewed with and New Zealand hops and Brett. It’s this unexpected combination that produces mind blowing fruit forward aromas of peach, tropical fruit and lemon with a rush of surprising Farmhouse funk. Can you smell it from there?
The pour is white-gold with vibrant carbonation that will likely become fuller as the yeast does its thing. The Brett speaks up right from the start with a bright and fruity nose that bounces right off the glass – you’ll have to remind yourself to stop sniffing and start drinking. Notes of hay and a light tartness amplify the powerful hoppy peach and citrus aromas. Balanced hops and yeasty esters combine with finessed fruitiness and light hop bitterness to forge a delicate, classy body that will only grow and progress over time.
Seattle has long lauded upstart Urban Family Brewing’s pioneering nature. From tropical to Belgian-inspired IPA’s, Urban Family’s hoppy repertoire is steadfast. De La Brett is a stern reminder they brew big, they brew bold, and they get there first.
