Free Verse India Pale Ale fermented with Brettanomyces
Leave well enough alone, right? We love our Free Verse. But we thought that it would be interesting to try out a new spin on our flagship India Pale Ale.
So one day we diverted regular Free Verse wort to a different fermentation vessel, where it was fermented solely with a strain of Brettanomyces isolated from a respected Belgian Lambic producer. As opposed to the ale yeast used to ferment traditional Free Verse, this Brett fermentation showcases distinct pineapple and overripe mango flavors with a touch of tropical funk.
The beer received the standard Free Verse dry-hopping treatment in order to maximize hop aroma. Bottle conditioning provides “Brett” Free Verse with a soft, natural carbonation and deeply nuanced flavors.
