This is the Snobby Beer review of Excelsior! Brute from Ithaca Beer Company. Brute is an American Wild Ale brewed with 3 types of Champagne yeasts, as well as Brettanomyces and probably some other “bugs”. This funky/sour beer is very limited, and is no longer available on the shelves. This is sort of a special beer review just for the lols.
Thanks to Darren Link from Brewtensils for sharing this beer with me!
From the Ithaca website:
“Golden Sour Ale
Brewed with vintage local hops, American Barley, Wheat and Corn, Brute is fermented on Oak for many months with Brettanomyces, then finished with a blend of three Champagne yeasts. Enjoy the turbid citron hue, mature aroma, brash tartness and dry, quenching sparkle.
ABV: 7 %
Malt: Pils, White Wheat, Acidulated, Red Wheat, Raw Wheat and Corn.
Hops: Aged NY Willamette, Aged NY Hallertau, Aged NY Cascade”
