Most often drier and fruitier than the base style suggests. Funky notes range from low to high, depending on the age of the beer and strain(s) of Brett used. Funkiness is generally restrained in younger 100% Brett examples, but tends to increase with age. May possess a light acidity, although this does not come from Brett.
A sour, fruity, red wine-like Belgian-style ale with interesting supportive malt flavors and fruit complexity. The dry finish and tannin completes the mental image of a fine red wine.
Mixed culture fermentations are magical. Brewers often mix yeast strains with brett and lacto to create a beverage that is at once funky and tart, subtle and satisfying. These beers are often wood aged and complex, bringing to the table flavors and aromas that create a drinking experience not to be forgotten.
