Sometimes nature takes its course. Other times, we guide it. Humulus Terreux is a wild, India pale beer that gives us the best of both worlds. Nature lends us the wild yeast, which we harness for a 100% Brettanomyces fermentation to impart notes of barnyard funk and earth, plus an active mouthfeel and a dry, signature finish. We complement these qualities derived from the brett by selecting a certain aromatic and flavor profile we want to achieve from hops. In this installment, we feature Mosaic hops, which contribute a little more sunshine to the funky, pale brett beer, in addition to juicy, tropical and berry fruit flavors.
Each batch of Humulus Terreux will taste a bit different, but given its basic nature, it should always be great with a home grown salad and simply grilled proteins of all sorts.
