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.

sudomorph (381) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2014
Sample from 750ml. Pours a hazy pale golden yellow with a white, fluffy head that stays all day. Aroma has huge notes of fruity, sweet funkiness, candy sugar, and bubblegum. Taste is a funky sweet with big big fruity notes. Really nice. Medium body with a high carbonation. Pretty clean and refreshing with an effervescent carbonation. Overall a great beer. Thanks to Dustin for the sample.

750ml bottle. Strong gusher. Hazy golden orange with a huge thick frothy white head. Aroma is brett, leather, apricot, citrus and spices. A lot of funk. Taste is fruity, grassy, earthy, bready and peppery. Very dry, a bit harsh. Light body, lively carbonation, smooth. Very nice.

DrSilverworm (5029) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 3, 2014
750ml bottle from crown liquors in downtown Indianapolis. Opened at a party. Mostly hazy golden orange color. Plenty ultra fine particles suspended in the body. Bottle foamed over a bit when opened, lots of rocky off white head. Plenty rows and thick splotches of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth lighter carbonation, kind of creamy, with a lightly sticky body. Easy drinking. Good amount of carbonation. Nice big lemony and peppery aroma. Good lighter tartness, moderate sweet. Alcohol pretty well hidden, smooth for the ABV. Tasty, balanced Brett Saison.

Cloudy golden yellow, lots of white head. Apricot, funk, molasses. Bitter upfront, some sourness, some very subtle sweetness. Very dry, pretty carbonated, not terribly acidic. Incredibly well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2012 version... As if a quality Saison wasn’t enough... the addition of the brettanomyces puts this mildly sour beer over the top... simply awesome...
