New Beer Thursday: Speculative Inference
Who is this Brett character, you ask? Dekkera anomala, aka Brettanomyces Claussenii (Brett C to friends) is a type of yeast used to create tropical, funky flavors in beer.
Speculative Inference is a pale ale fermented with thiolized yeast and finished with brett c. In addition to creating its own funky, rustic, and tropical notes, brett also locks in fruity flavors derived from hops through a process called biotransformation.
This pale ale has a ton of complex flavor in a small package. The aroma is akin to walking into a room where your friend has been trying to repair a dusty old tube TV while feverishly hitting his mango melon flavored vape. It tastes like 21+ Sunny D.
