Four Winds Operis Brett Saison Review Four Winds Brewing – Operis Brett Saison Review

In the Eurus Series of bottle conditioned beers from Four Winds Brewing comes the Operis, A Brett Saison in a champagne corked, 750ml bottle. After popping the cork the beer enters the glass with three fingers of bubbly head atop a lightly clouded, golden coloured ale. From the Operis comes an aroma of sour fruit, earthiness and a Belgian-funk. The Operis is big on the Brett and the aroma is quite intense. The Body is smooth but still light. The first notes from this beer are lightly sour with a citrus note that adds a kick of flavour. This soon settles into an earthy-saison flavour with wheat notes, earthiness and a dryer than expected finish. The Brett Tones give a well crafted Saison a hit of sour and earthiness in a tasty and unique beer. The Operis is a great way to experience Brett-Yeast flavour as the different flavour profiles that it brings are clearly evident and put forth in a delicious manner. Another winner from Four Winds Brewing!
