Rating:What did you think of it? Never Tried It
We aged the Bretta Rose (Batch No. 3) for almost a year and a half after bottling (February 2016) before taking it out of the cellar for this tasting. It pours a non-transparent, reddish color, just like rose. Super white, frothy head with a constant string of bubbles that rises up from the bottom of the glass. Strong, floral aroma of both Brett and fruity raspberries. You can also smell the oak barrels in the aroma. Taste is similar, with lots of raspberry fruit. The Brett funk is still there, but it's pretty gentle. And the oak and wood flavors from the barrel smooth things out. Dry mouthfeel with good carbonation. The finish is refreshing and crisp, with a tart acidity that lingers. A really nice wild ale from Firestone Walker's Barrelworks.

Orval Trappist Ale
jhmiller Oct 10, 2021 at 9:54PMJust had another bottle of this, which means it is now 5 1/2 years old. The color is a bit lighter, more orangish rust. Probably a bit more muted on the fruit and oak flavors, but still fairly tart and acidic. Overall flavor is still excellent.
