Barrel Aged Brett Saison – Bridge Brewing Company


From Bridge Brewing Company in North Vancouver comes their “Barrel Aged Brett Saison”.  The beer poured an amber colour with an off white head.  The aroma consists of oak, brettanomyces, red wine and tropical fruit.  The flavour was of red wine, cherry, tropical fruit, tannin’s, brettanomyces funk, oak and some earth in the finish.  The alcohol content comes in at 7% with an IBU of 18.  I love a good sasion brett and this one ranks up there.

Commercial Description:  A blend of seven barrels, this Brett Saison is fermented with French Saison, Farmhouse and Belgian yeasts. Aging in red wine barrels with Brettanomyces Lambicus and Brettanomyces Bruxellensis for over a year adds pineapple and cherry aromatics, along with a touch of earthy brett quality. The wine barrels contribute raspberry and cherry notes along with a dry oaky finish, making for a flavourful and complex brett beer.
