wonderful
Pitched into a small 5 gallon table beer wort with 50%+ flaked wheat, just to test this blend and see where it went. After a few weeks at ~75F, it was well attenuated and tasted like a bright and estery saison. Very nice, but the brett hadn't done much yet.

After a month it started getting funky, and mildly acetic. Being someone who is not so keen on acetic acid in my funky and sour beer, I tossed in 12 lbs of apricot and some oak cubes to see if I could mask it. I came back a few months later and had to have it on tap.

The beer was beautifully tart, but not sour, rich with layers of brett character... very similar, if not better, than beers like Crooked Stave and other brett breweries.

The high levels of wheat made it creamy more like a fruit smoothy than say a lambic or something more "sharp".
