666. Grassroots Brewing Wheat is the New Hops
This beer was brewed with Mikkeller in Denmark and released under the Mikkeller name and then brewed again in Vermont and released under the Grassroots Brewing label as it was originally intended. I had no idea what this beer was when I purchased it but before opening I did some investigating online and found it was an IPA fermented with brettanomyces.
Even after reading the description of the beer I wasn’t sure what to expect. What I found was a very interesting beer. Unfiltered yellow appearance with a fluffy white head. Aroma is strong with lots of wheat, citrus hops and very little funk.
Taste has lots of citrus and lemon and a little more funk than the nose but still very subtle. I have another bottle of this so it will be interesting to see how it changes over time, the hops will fade but will the brett continue to do its thing?
Pros: A nice change from your typical IPA
