Brett Mikkel’s IPA
A brett IPA isn’t anything new, and like all brett beers this one displays that unique tropical fruit funk. To punch up that brett-ness they’ve focused on hops that also contain those same fruity notes, Huell Melon, Hallertau Blanc and Mandarina Bavaria all of which contribute to the fruit and melon tones that come through this beer.
Appearance Beautiful golden color with a think pillowy head when poured from the bottle.
Aroma Tart Fruit, lots and lots of tart ripe fruit. Melon, mango lemon and citrus.
Flavor Strong hints of grape and and over-ripe fruit. A touch of wine along with brett funk. Between the brett and the acidulated malt it has a nice touch of tartness but the honey malt balances it out with a sweetness so it doesn’t overpower the beer.
Drinkability & Notes This was an enjoyable beer. The distinctive and unique mix of flavors blend together to form a pleasant drinking experience.
