Bruery Terreux is known for specializing in funky, adventurous, experimental beers of wonder, and this selection fits seamlessly into their lineup. Labeled as “a hoppy Brett beer,” it's the brewery's take on an India pale ale that's 100% fermented with Brettanomyces. As a result of this, and as expected, it's brimming with wild, earthy, funky notes of barnyard, earth and lemony tartness, but it's complemented by a bright hop profile of fresh citrus, stone and tropical fruits from the Mosaic hops. More prominent bitterness unfolds on the medium-weight palate, which is smooth but easygoing, thanks to lively carbonation and a bright, acidic character from the wild yeast. Final notes of lemon rind, dried hay, pressed hop flowers and lupulin powder hang around on the dry finish. A strange but cool trip, indeed.
