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.

Appearance is pale straw yellow and slightly cloudy. Aroma is earthy, horse blanket, typical brettanomyces. Taste is sweet biscuity malt with a definite earthy, horse blanket flavor, and some fruity yeast. Mouthfeel is light, highly carbonated, and very dry. Finishes with a crisp bitterness and earthiness.

Pours a nice occluded golden color with white fizzy head. Very carbonated. Brett on the nose, tartness, wheat, as well as some citrus; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice tartness from the Brett.

2014 version. Yellow pour, high carbonation. Overall impression is earthiness. Funk is restrained. Some herbal notes. The Amarillo doesn’t show itself clearly, but it lends some citrus. Impression of bitterness is low to medium despite the IBU. Approachable but interesting beer, one to sip and enjoy.

Love this beer. The 2012 was very well rounded with predominant brett flavors. 2013 fell a little flat for me. Brett wasn’t as predominant and the finish wasn’t as dry. 2014 was excellent. Big brett, big barnyard. Super dry finish. Body is spot on, with a nice underlying hop bitterness. Excellent!

Steve says liquid horse. To me it’s More. Hoppy and a touch of sour. Nice but but not the spectacular beer he says it is

Pours a cloudy straw color with a HUGE white head. Tons of bubbles streaming up. Aroma is fantastic; banana, clove, lemon. Taste is peppery and has that Belgian yeast character. Soda-like carbonation. Outstanding saison.

ej (684) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2014
Pours a pale yellow producing a very large, bubbly head that has good retention. Wonderful aromas of citrus peel, apples, barnyard / dried hay and some earthy notes. Taste is very well balanced. Not too sweet and not too sour. I wouldn’t mind if it was more sour tho.. It has apples, pale malts, earthy cellar and a moderate bitterness. Feels just above medium on the palate but is still fairly dry. High levels of co2.

Just tried the 2011, aged under cool conditions, poured into a glass.Nice golden color, thick white head, very distinctive taste, good beer, probably aged a little too long, but a good beer.

Flaska från systembolaget. Ljusgul smått grumlig kulör med stort skum. Doft av ceder och jordkällare. Skön jordig smak med härlig strävhet.
