  • Beer: Abera Brut
  • Style: Sour Rye Brett Ale (28A. Brett Beer - 25C. Belgian Golden Strong Ale solely fermented with brettanomyces)
  • ABV: 11.5%
  • IBU: 26
  • Breweries:
  • Look: golden color, clear, with great formation of a white head;
  • Aroma: very present aroma of brut white sparkling wine, but bringing a little more sweetness. As the beer warms up in the glass, a light hint of yellow fruits shows up, probably from the Bretta. A very light hint of leather can be perceived sometimes;
  • Taste: there is some remembrance of brut white sparkling ale on the palate as well, but with a tad less sweetness than in the aroma. There is a light-to-medium wild notes presence, bringing notes of leather and yellow fruits, mainly pear. The alcohol can be perceived, more easily on the mouthfeel, but also very lightly on the palate. Very light spiciness, bringing a peppery feel, probably coming from the rye. Light tartness at the end of the sip;
  • Mouthfeel: Light-to-medium body, very high carbonation and a dry and short finish;
  • Overall: Very good sour beer. It has a great brut white sparkling wine feel, but with a delicious Brett twist. Delightful.
