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.

Sample of 2012 and 2014 at Ale Alpharetta. Thanks Drew and Deb! Pours a hazy, light gold, wtih a big bubbly head. The aroma is butterscotch, mango, pineapple, and some light minerals. Sweet, with just a touch of funk and sourness. High carbonation, very bubbly, and acidic. Overall, this is an excellent, mellow, and tart beer.

Hazy blond color, well carbonated. Nice aroma, pungent Brett, a bit fruity. Very dry, very carbonated, spicy but also with lingering fruitiness.
A lot of character here.

Bottle: cloudy, honey straw, thick head and great lace. Massive lift. Fruit, spice, mineral and earth. Tropic and fresh. Not the least bit green. Massive fruit. Mostly clean but just a little funk. Dry, crisp not sour, and moderate bitterness. Great depth and length. Excellent flavor. Very refreshing. Complexed and balanced. Great beer.

Draft pour. Pours golden with a nice slightly tart, spicy aroma. What an incredible beer this is. So much flavor here. Sweet floral flavor with a nice mild, spice finish. Loved it.

Tap at Happy Gnome. Aroma is in the vein of elderflower...very pleasant. Sweet, yet hoppy. Really nice cloudy gold visual. Taste is refreshing and incredibly easy to drink for a high alcohol beer. Lots of floral and some citrus..borderline overly sweet. Definitely a high quality saison. Please seek this out.
