Tart Ten

Beer Review #161

Today I'm tasting Tart Ten Ale With Brettanomyces from Victory Brewing Company. As a lover of both Victory and Brett, what's not to like?

This 10%ABV Brett beer uses Pilsner, Vienna, Munich, Cara 350, Cara 150 and Acidulated malts along with Saaz hops to concoct a sweet and tart transparent light-amber brew.  

As is common with this type of beer, the carbonation is high, light and snappy, but even so the thick head of white foam hangs around surprisingly long after the pour.

The aroma is mainly fruity - sour apple, pear, apricot, with just a hint of that expected Brett 'funk.'

The taste is both sweet and tart. The tartness, coupled with the carbonation burns a bit when you swallow, although the 10% ABV remains well hidden.
