Fools Down the Back is a collaboration between Mornington Peninsula Brewery and 8 Wired Brewing. It is listed as a Brett IPA at the Alehouse and as a session IPA Untappd, but with an ABV of 6.4%, we think this would make for a very short session. If you’re wondering, Brett is short for Brettanomyces, a type of yeast. We didn’t know that either, but either way, we weren’t big fans of it.
I’m guessing that the weird flavour that wasn’t quite doing it for me was the Brett… not a fan of the Brett.
I get a bit of that farmhouse flavour about it … if you told me it was a saison, I would believe that … it’s not my favourite.
It’s interesting and it’s different, but it’s not something I would really choose to drink fairly often.
