Disapointed of this one. I had great expectations but the beer let me down. I love tank 7 but some of the grassy green stuff in the tank 7 was gone. All the nice stuff. Left back was a very dry tasteless saison. Taste is individual, and it appears i dont like the brett flavor. At least not when the brett is fresh. Keeping the other bottle in the basement for a few years

Smak och doft av brett, citron, apelsin, citrus, humle, äpple. Torr, fruktig, syrlig, fruktig en aning träig och örtig med en god beska med toner av grapefrukt. Fantastiskt gott.

Bottle. Pours cloudy gold with a large white head. Great aroma of Brett funk, citrus, flowers and light yeast. Great funky Brett flavors with notes of yeast, flowers, citrus, fruit and a nice earthiness. Nice slightly sour, funky Brett finish. A great saison.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 3/2013. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy bright golden amber color with a 2-3 finger foamy and rocky white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass, with plenty of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pineapple, pear, lemon zest, orange zest, apple, hay, floral, grass, pepper, light bread, light must, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity brett, earthy yeast, and moderate malt notes; with good strength. Taste of pineapple, lemon zest, orange zest, pear, apple, pepper, clove, hay, grass, floral, light bread, light must, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of pineapple, bright citrus, pepper, clove, bread, hay, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical brett flavors with fruity/spicy yeast and moderate malt balance; with a great malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. High carbonation and medium bodied; with a very crisp, smooth, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an incredible saison! All around amazing balance and complexity of brett/yeast and moderate malt flavors; and super smooth and crisp to drink for the ABV. An extremely delicious offering.

Flaska från SB. Ser ut och beter sig som Champagne i glasen. Väldigt lyckad klassisk saison med en extra brettdimension. Syrlig, örtig, jordig, citrusfräschör med lime och citron och lätt citrusbeska, färskt trä och lätt stallkaraktär. Fantstiskt god.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Really something to look at with the big frothy head and color. Great aroma that says sour brett but unfortunately the flavor is all brett. Too much brett for me. I like the other elements to domiate and the brett to compliment them. Rename it Brett-Saison.
