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.

Thanks stowehop for knocking off one of my wants! It pours golden yellow/orange with a towering, frothy head. Beautiful aroma of oranges, spices, heavy brett influence with leather and horseblanket. This smells really dry, yeasty and funky. The flavor is very funky and spicy. Lots of horseblanket and leather, some orange rind and spices lead to a very dry, hoppy finish. I’m not sure how old this bottle is, but the Brett has really taken over. To be honest, there is something slightly off. Mild hints of bandaid and burnt plastic, but I only noticed it toward the end of the bottle. It could have been the funk destroying my palate for all I know. This was just short of excellence IMO.

Bottle thanks to Angrypirate06. Pours and orangey golden color with a big pillowy white head. Nose is faint pineapple, fresh air and clover patch. Taste is similar with downy, brett, and spice. Very well balanced with a medium length finish. Solid beer.

Batch 2. Bottle from milljam. Golden colored and pours with a thick fluffy head. Fruity aroma of pears, apple, citrus, flowers, fresh cut grass, yeast and a light spice note. The same flavors for the most part. Refreshing. The alcohol doesn’t show. I had the Tank 7 not too long ago and this really does taste like that with an added funky element. More drinkable and refined too. The hops are still here but not quite as assertive as Tank 7. I get a nice citrusy melon flavor that comes out more as it warms and it mixes nicely with the brett character and hops. In many ways this beer is the best of both worlds. Enough alcohol and big flavors to satisfy the Imperial lovers while still being elegant, clean and refreshing. Probably needless to say but I enjoyed this one.

Bottle #7456. Hazy orange body, puffy off-white head. Herbal bitter nose with light tartness and lemongrass. Bitter body with hints of pineapple and wood, again slightly tart, but mostly herbal and spicy. Puffy, creamy body. Very good.

Bottle. Poured a yellowish color with a big pillowly white head. Aroma was spices, citrus, fruits, and other grassy earthy aromas. Flavor was spicey and tangy. Very good. Smoother, but had some spicey kick to it. Not a huge fan of this style but this one was better than drinkable.

Beerman6686 (5619) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2010
This poured a clo0udy yellow color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was citrusy, spicey, and signs of brett. Flavor was a very odd blend of sour and sweet, too just too odd of a combination for my liking.

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.
