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.

Mortlach (1775) - Rome, ITALY - OCT 13, 2015
750ml bottle, courtesy of Jow (many thanks!). Pours deep golden with a nice head. Aroma of brett, cheese, orange zest, yeasts, floral notes, amazing. Flavour is rich and balanced, medium sweet with a decent bitter end. Medium body, medium carbonation. Good stuff!

theOptimator (354) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Aroma is like a nice malty Saison with tangy hops, large floral, some citrus, pear..... alot going on here. Appearance is golden yellow with large mousse-y off white head that retains for along time. Taste is tangy floral sweet malt forward. Some cotton candy, citrus pear.... lots of complexities. Not particularly well attenuated. Would benefit greatly from aging IMO.... but still quite nice. Palate is medium but crisp. Overall an excellent Saison with the Brett just starting to show some complex flavors. Again, I could see this beer being really great if aged for a year or two. Right now it is one of the better Saisons I have had.

Courtesy of Jow, shared with friends at Johnny Off L. store in Rome-Italy. Pours orange cloudy, tick white cap. Nose: juicy sweet fruit, brett, zest. Mouth: medium carbonation, a bit too citric (more aging would have helped), fruity. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dhatton (241) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Pours a hazy golden body with 3 fingers of loose, pillowy foam that deflates into sticky patches. Nose is ripe blueberries, fragrant florals, some spice, and damp grass aromas. Earthy taste of funky yeast, hay, mild citrus peels with a lingering spicy finish. Chewy texture, medium body. Nice carbonation and crispness. Lovely farmhouse ale.

Sigmund (6231) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2015
750 ml bottle, vintage 2013, probably from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 8.5%.Pale golden colour, only slightly hazy. Huge and lasting white head. Lovely aroma of saison yeast and brett, with fruity and peppery notes, hints of farmhouse. Medium sweet but still quite crisp flavour with peppery notes, distinct bittering hops.

Hazy golden with a white pillowy head. Aroma is spicy, with a hint of wild yeast. Flavor is spice and citrus, some added character from the Brettanomyces.
