La Bretteuse

La Bretteuse

La Bretteuse is an IPA aged at length in Pinot noir et Zinfandel barrels, which contain a large amount of brettanomyces. As a result of this process, this cloudy beer with hints of orange reveals a nose of rose water, grapefruit and vanilla. The acidity and bitterness of the palate engage in a long nuptial waltz, creating a delightful combination of flavours just waiting to be consumed.

Did you know that

It is uncommon for IPAs to undergo a flavour maturation process; it is indeed the only one of its kind among the TDD’s products. Its hoppy profile mitigates the reaction with Bacillus, which forces the Brettanomyces to transform the non-fermentable sugars into alcohol. The Pinot noir and Zinfandel barrels, used in equal proportion, also have a strong influence and give the beer the desired vinous texture.

Who it is for

Procrastinators, slackers and anyone who like to put their feet on a table, their chair on two legs and slowly enjoy a great beer.
