Tangerine de Brettaville

Tangerine de Brettaville

6.5% ABV | 375ml bottles & limited draft

Tangerine de Brettaville celebrates the flavors of citrus in beer.  We start by brewing a funky brettanomyces fermented base beer in large oak foeders, where the brett yeast creates farmhouse flavors and aromas.  We layer on California-grown tangerines and oranges for big citrus flavors, balancing tropical peel aromas and a hint of citrus bitterness.  Finally, we finish the beer with a generous dry hop of Citra, adding one more layer of citrus aroma to create a complex offering.  Pair with peking duck, orange chicken or walnut shrimp.

de Brettaville Series

Our Farm to Barrel beers focus on the eons-old tradition of aging beers in oak barrels, and our de Brettaville saisons expand upon this tradition by highlighting the magical properties of wild brettanomyces yeast. We start by brewing a bright and aromatic farmhouse ale with a blend of twelve “brett” yeast strains. After a vigorous primary fermentation, the beer is racked into wine barrels to mature. In cask, the beer takes on the complex flavors of the oak, and the brettanomyces yeast creates an exotic melange of earthy funk and tropical fruit flavors. This wild ale is alive in the bottle and will continue to mature for years.
