Femme Fatale Series
$8 per bottle
Most beer fermentation relies on modern, cultured brewing yeast (Saccharomyces cerevisiae), which allows for more control in the brewery. Additionally, cultured yeast greatly aids in producing a predictable and consistent final product. Brettanomyces (Brett), on the other hand, is a more wild strain of yeast typically considering a flaw due to its vigorous and unpredictable nature. For the Femme Fatale series, Evil Twin has embraced Brett and entirely omitted the use of traditional brewing yeast.
Femme Fatale Brett is a balanced IPA and the starting point for the range. Femme Fatale Blanc includes the addition of Nelson Sauvin hops, which provide the beer with a slight tropical fruit nose. Femme Fatale Noir, like the others, is an IPA; however, it the inclusion of dark malts in the brewing process produce a beer black in color with a slightly roasted edge. All of the beers in the series are fermented entirely with Brettanomyces, thus providing an earthy, funky undertone to each product. These beers will evolve and develop over time, with the hop character subsiding and the Brett character coming to the forefront. These beers are quite unique and it is suggested to try all three side by side.
