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.

Bottle, with thanks to Tytoanderso. Pours hazy orange, thick white head, stunning lacing, it actually hangs in clumps on thside of the glass. Nose is very ’Avec les Bons Voeux’=esque, tart, with clean malt, cardamom, white pepper, mild alcohol note. flavor is earth, dusty hops, juicy, stale stonefruit character. Good acidity, nice balance, clean, crisp finish.

Thanks to savvy1982 for the share! Pours yellow with a large rocky head. The aroma is lightly bretted with a very phenolic nose and some alcohol showing. The flavor has berries, dark fruit, oats and spice. Full body. Really nice.

Tmoney99 (12071) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2010
Corked bottle #6005. Poured clear golden color with a large frothy off-white head that was lasting with excellent lacing. Heavy brett yeast and fruit aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy blalanced sweet & sour flavor with a medium to heavy sour & sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid complex drinkable beer.

beerchugger (708) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2010
UPDATED: APR 4, 2010 Pours pale golden yellow with a full white pillowy head. The aroma has a nice lemony/citrusy character undergirded by a decent earthiness. As it sits, some of the citrus fades and gives way to stronger earthiness and hops. The flavor is rather mild with the citrus being most noticeable upfront followed by some of the characteristic earthiness associated with saisons. It finishes a little dry. The flavors were good, but I just couldn’t pull much flavor out this one. I was expecting a pretty good flavor of Brett but this just didn’t deliver.

750mL shared at Carolina Goes Sour. Pours a cloudy bright yellow with a massive white head that has very good retention and crazy lace. Aroma of grapefruit peel, Brett, perfumey hops, ginger root. Taste s fairly sweet, lots of perfume, spices, and Belgian pale ale hoppiness, grassy hops. Dry finish. Very nice!

Pours hazy yellow with a huge fluffy white head and a citrus and spice aroma. There is a pale malt and earthy yeast flavor that is spicy with a fair amount of hop bitterness. Complex, tasty and refreshing.

750ml bottle. Pours hazy yellow with large fluffy white head. Aromas of lemon, wheat, belgian yeast, and some brett. Flavor of sour lemon, yeast, spices, wheat, and brett. Thought there would be some more funk or yeast. Very delicate brew and a good saison. Pretty solid overall.
