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.

Rune (11054) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2015
750ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Bestillingsutvalget. Shared with Stefan, Finn, Elisabeth and Stefan. Initial huge, rocky, white head, some of it remaining while leaving spotty lacing behind. Cloudy golden in body colour. Fresh fruity aroma of peach and dusty hops. Fruity flavors of peach and orange joined by minerals and a basement touch. Mild acidic ending. Foamy in the mouth. Refreshing and pleasing (Big bottle session, Tromsø 16.12.2015).

Bottled in Texas. Poured a very huge heady white. Tons of funky brett yeast and some nice fruits and such. Pretty nice saison.

kevinator (1850) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2015
This bottle had been aged for a while and seems to have held up. Strong aroma of sour fruit and funk. Somewhat cloudy ginger color with a big foamy head. Light crisp palate with a sharp finish. Funk up front with wheat and fermented fruit. A little grainy.

Bottle at home in a tulip while cooking Thanksgiving dinner. Pours a light orange-yellow with serious head. (Got a great BANG when I opened the bottle.) Aroma is fresh tropical fruits like mango and peach, funky brett strains, cereal, and some dank hops. BIG carb, tingly finish. Brett funk and earth on the end. Solid brett beer with mild fruits. Love it.

glennmastrange (2652) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 21, 2015
Bottle. Moderate aromas all around with grain and hay for the malt, dried grass for the hops, barnyard for the yeast, with hints of wood, white wine, dried peach and apricot.Head is large, frothy turning rocky, translucent white, with good thick lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is light hazy, yet highly sparkling medium amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter, and still a touch of sweetness. Palate is light to medium, slick, with a fizzy carbonation. 17 An excellent mix of everything that is good in a Saison with not a thing offensive. I could drink this any time.

willisread (2281) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 19, 2015
Bottle shared at sour tasting. Thanks Jon! Pours a neon yellow with a one-finger, pillowy white head. Banana cream pie on the nose with some stone fruit and light brett. Medium-light body with active carbonation. Great creamy mouthfeel that lasts throughout. Lots of things going on as it warms with the barnyard notes standing out as it warms. Nice, dry and fruit-forward finish. Wonderful.

Poured into a wine glass showing translucent neon yellow with a half a finger of lightly yellow foam. The nose shows a slight farmhous background with moderate notes of brett and orange. The palate is light bodied and highly carbonated. The flavors are extremely brett forward without any tartness; very similar to Orval. Light bitterness on the finish and a very light tartness throughout.
