A Note on This Beer
Gold for their ‘Touch of Brett’ pinot noir barrel-aged Farmhouse Ale. With only 250 cases in existence, this is one of the hottest Wild Ales in the world right now and you can only get it on Tavour.
Alesong tunes every ingredient in ‘Touch of Brett’ to create a elegance expose on the crisp white grape notes of Brett Lambicus wild yeast. Based in the pinot noir heartland of Eugene, OR, they employ some of the best pinot noir barrels in the world to enhance Brett’s natural grape tang. Liberal dry-hopping with Citra provides bright orange and grapefruit notes, giving a juicy burst to counterpoint the funky straw-like notes of the Brett.
Decant this into a flute and you may mistake its vigorous bubbles, foam and brassy bright yellow for champagne. Pungent notes of ripe brie swirl with the a tart note of grapes and the dry fruit complexity of apple skins. The barrels come to life with a slight burst of raspberries and the deep minerality of French oak that sparkles like a magnesium flare.
Few breweries explode on the scene with the intensity of Alesong. This medal winning brew shows they have the skill to be the next Wild Ale legend like Crooked Stave or Jolly Pumpkin. Don’t miss this chance to try one of the first beers that hit it big in their ‘Touch of Brett.’
