Produces classic Brett “Barnyard” characteristics, sometimes referred to as "sweaty horse blanket", plus some subtle fruity aroma and moderate acidity. Adds a tart complexity to any beer. Classically used to produce styles such as gueuze, lambics and sour browns. It may form a pellicle in fermentors or bottles. This yeast is highly attenuative when left for long periods of time but tends to ferment slowly. Typically best used in combination with faster fermenting yeast in the primary or added to the secondary to add complexity while aging.
