Allagash Brewing Co. Little Brett Ale

Brett or Bettanomyces is a non-spore forming genus of yeast in the family of Saccharomycetaceae. It is used in wild ales like this Allagash Brewing Co. Little Brett Ale, 4.8% ABV, which is brewed in Portland Maine. Most of you craft beer drinks know of Allagash from its widely popular White Ale. Little Brett Ale pours a clear golden color with a quickly fading one and a half finger white head that leaves nothing behind but aromas of big sweet pineapple with a little bit of a funky note that takes you into a pineapple taste with a nice sweet but semi-funky flavor with a very small dry like note on the back of the mouth with a nice funky sweet fruited pineapple finish and a semi-sweet tropical pineapple aftertaste with a light mouthfeel. This is good but as it warms to room temperature and beyond the flavor becomes more of a non-natural fruit juice flavor that isn’t so bad, so I give Allagash Brewing Co. Little Brett Ale a B+. I could have a few of these and so should you. It’s a good refreshing beer that is crisp with nice flavors. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
