Driftwood Brewery has put out an Abbey Ale called Drawn To The Light which is wild fermented using Brett yeast along with Saccharomyces for a twisted take on the style. This moth labelled beer pours from the bomber bottle a colour of gold with a light haze to it. The two fingers of head leave fairly dense lacing behind on the glass. The aroma from this beer is strong with the Brett yeast tones. an earthy, lightly musty aroma comes through with a mango-citrus back to give a unique and fairly intense aroma combination. Taking a sip of the beer the body is light on the tongue and airy in texture. This does not mean that the beer’s body is thin by any means though. The Brett tones give a light barnyard tone to the flavour while the fruit-hop tones add a tasty and tropical twist to the beer. The earthiness settles down the ordeal as the finish approaches with lightly bitter, hop tones that linger afterwards. For all the Brett beer fans out there this should definitely be on the hit list, it is balanced, smooth and a very enjoyable brew.

Alcohol – 7.0%
Size – 650ml
