Cervejaria Dogma | Branca de Brett

When we decided to bring the Branca de Brett to Dogma, we decided to change it a little bit. We kept the refreshing base that mixed wheat and barley, but we decided to acidify the wort and to ferment it with a blend of Brettas. For these task we chose the Trois, Lambicus and Bruxellensis Brettas, aiming to bring complexity to this simple malt base. Besides that, we did a generous Dry-hop of El Dorado and Mosaic hops, complementing the mango and pineapple fruitiness that were added during the fermentation. The result is an acid, fruity and refreshing explosion, which will evolve with the storing time to funky and wild notes! (Source: Loosely translated from the beer's label.)

  • Taste: the sip is juicy, bringing fruity notes, reminding of cashew and mango. The acidity, present in a medium level, is the main character in this beer, and it’s the feature that brings balance to it. Light presence of Brettanomyces notes, bringing a light hint of leather. Very light malty, grainy notes, can be perceived as well. The acidity, along with this light malt presence, makes the beer remind of a sparkling wine.
  • Mouthfeel: Light body, very high carbonation and a dry and short finish.
  • Overall: Really, really good sour ale. It has a near to infinity drinkability.
