COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison-Brett, based on our very popular Tank 7, is assertively dry hopped, then bottle conditioned with various yeasts, including Brettanomyces, a wild strain that imparts a distinctive earthy quality. Though this farmhouse ale was given three months of bottle age prior to release, further cellaring will continue to enhance the “Brett” character, if that’s what you’re after.

pivo (2665) - GERMANY - SEP 18, 2016
Deep hazy gold, fluffy head. Brett a gogo on the nose. Big sour body smacks into your taste buds immediately. Yeasty, spicy, complex. Amazing that this was brewed in the new world. nice. Something in the aftertaste is slightly off but overall very good.

cmacklin (847) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 11, 2016
750ml bottle. (2015 release) Pours a cloudy orange with some sediment floating around and a huge, frothy, long lasting, white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet, fruity aroma of lemon, wheat malt and light brettanomyces. Sweet fruity flavour of lemon, wheat malt, spicy yeast and alcohol with a dry, bitter, slightly tart finish. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture and lively carbonation. Well balanced. An excellent saison.

rumproasts (5046) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Bottle. Pale golden with one finger head. Funky Brett barnyard. Just a bit fruity and tart. Nicely funky. Would be a really nice introduction to sours.

chucklemation (1424) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - AUG 17, 2016
Pours a hazy straw yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma is Brett funk, citrus, spicy yeast, and barnyard/hay smells. Flavor is spicy yeast, Brett funk, and citrus. Has a soft, smooth mouthfeel. Nice.

kingaugusta (235) - Georgia, USA - AUG 16, 2016
Pours hazy blonde with a fine white head. Nose is a nice blend of tart apple, white wine and a touch of floral hops on top of a Belgian pale malt. Flavor shows off those brettanomyces in a balanced manner. Finish is sticky and smooth. A rare saison that’s funky without taking it to a sour level. Good stuff.

rondphoto (4053) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 12, 2016
on tap @ Party Town (Friday Night Flights) / Florence KY --- Light sour aroma. Hazy medium golden amber, white head that drops to a full cover, stripes of lace. Taste is caramel malt resting in full carbonation, turning sour more than bitter in the end. Doesn’t match the Saison profile, but who cares - it’s really good, so who cares.

sawbuck (633) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2016
Funky barnyard going on here in a good way on the nose....some licorice. Taste is complex, dark fruit, some pepper spiciness also, but still effervescent and refreshing. Really nice.
