Our Brett Venture series is the exploration of how single strains of Brettanomyces ferment and condition a Saison malt bill. Each Brett Venture will be fermented in and aged in wine barrels with a different Brettanomyces strain to showcase its unique characteristics.

100% fermented with a brett strain from Cantillon, like Brett Project #1 (Brett Venture #1), but with lactobacillus added to the Chambourcin barrel, where it aged for six months. The result is similar to the lively characteristics of Brett Project #1, but with more acidity.

ABC Roxy Benefit: Poured a murky yellow with a white head. Aroma is woodsy, funky wine like fruit. Taste is super funky, tart, spicy, citrus fruit. Zesty finish on the tongue.
