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, gift from our Mes yet again. Hazy yellow gold with big fluffy white head. Stunning aroma, flavour and palate. Right up my street this is. Superb beer. Has Saison qualities but the brett just lifts it to a higher level. Lovely finish. Awesome beer.

A: Straw yellow with a very large amount of white head. S: Lots of earthiness coming from the brett here, as well as some citrus and a few earthy hops. T: Not much of the typical saison spice, the main focus here is definitely the earthiness of the brett. Perhaps the brett was let shine a little too much, as I didn’t detect many of the other saison signatures. M: Medium bodied with a good dose of carbonation. D: Quite drinkable and very refreshing on a hot summer evening. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-24-2009

Thank you Josh for the bottle! ’09. Light, dulled yellow in the glass. Aroma is herbal, light malt, brett, and some related mild earthy funk. Taste has a lot of earth/oak up front with medium tart in the middle, and some sharper tart/funk on the finish. Great beer but I preferred the regular saison just a bit more as it came across as more balanced.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 13, 2010
0.75L bottle kindly shared by Kestral. Huge blond Orval head. Bright and lively honey-golden body. Nice Bretty aroma, tart yellow fruits and lemon peel. Pepper and spices, and a scent of fresh yeast. Taste is sharp and tight. Layers of fruitiness; From tangy citrus and sour apples to tinned fruits with a touch of sweetness. Some dry wheaty malts in the backbone. Generously spiced, pepper mostly, and a firm bitterness too. Alcohol very well masked. Sparkling mouthfeel. Tart fruity and spiced ending. Really good stuff.

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - OCT 8, 2010
Bottle from secret summer santa. Thanks! Pours a light, light yellow with a big, airy, fluffy head. Lemon, funk, yeast, spices, wheat, lightly acidic and fruity aromas. Yum. It’s pretty sharp in the flavour. A short, almost non existent sweetness hits the tongue first, before the acidity and bitterness takes over. Defintely wheat like, but not the banana part of it, more the sour part of it. It feels a bit smoked as well. Nice. Light bodied, (a bit too) lively carbonation, but full of flavour so it’s not watery or thin. A nice and refreshing drink, which does smell a bit better than it tastes, but comes together nicely.

A-pours a deep glowing yellow color with a thin bubbly white head cascading down the glass. S-the nose starts with a light brett aroma, notes of leather and a light barnyard funk, light cheese aroma, tons of lemon, citrus, and herbal grassy hops take over in abundance. T-the taste is similar, lots of brett, notes of leather, light baryard funk, a fair bit of cheese, tons of lemon and citrus, ripe juicy orange, grassy herbal hops take over in the back, the cheese lingers throughout. M-medium to full body, well carbonated and prickly throughout but not stinging, crisp semi dry finish. D-this beer has a huge balance of delicious saison qualities and a solid brett presence up front. very well balanced with each aspect working together with the other creating a blend of flavors that works very well together.

750mL Bottle. Flowery and peppered aroma of orchid blossom and light buckwheat honey. Light, airy, and intoxicating. Pours a just-off-the-plane slight hazy mid-golden with a rim of mid-whitish. The flavors are so floral and fragrant, fresh and juicy. Tangerine zest, fluffy brett dryness, light cumin-like spice, and some sweet apple sugars. So bright, fresh and refined. Great balance of flowery, peppery dryness and light juicy citrus like malt sweetness. Refined and elegant.
