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.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - FEB 15, 2010
Bright sour nose, some deep clove grapefruit notes. Ethereal hazy deep gold color, huge long lasting meringue head. Some cotton candy sweetness, well-balanced by a tart funky Brett bitterness. Big carbonation, medium body, excellent warming, funky, peach nectar and sugar finish. This is a wonderful beer, the flavors are impeccable, and age should treat this nicely.

skoisirius (1838) - Earth, Washington, USA - FEB 15, 2010
Touches of the golden yellow sun fed grass within blended parallel stripes of sour brushes across the nose, the light in the bodiness was a bit too much, but rounded out completing the continual stream once the finish and palate were surrounded in the mouth. Yumm.

Nice cloudy golden yellow. Good head on the pour. The nose is big saison, with a brett funk of pineapple and yeast. The palate is like a good banana bread: Banana hints with clove and cinnamon. Nice and refreshing, yet a good full-bodied beer! Batch 2, 2009 No. 06663

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 13, 2010
750ml - Aroma of tangy citrus hops and spicy yeast but dominated by brett. Flavor is big but not to intense. Doughy sweet yeast, soft chewy hops with a nice cushy brett finish. Palate is soft yet tart. Alcohol is non-existent. This is my kind of saison. Subtle yet full flavored and funky.

graham515 (536) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Pours gold into the glass with a white head and lots of carbonation coming up from the bottom. Aroma is somewhat funky with some grass and hay. Flavor is spicy. Malt is light and bready. Alcohol well hidden. Great body.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 6, 2010
Cloudy orange, big frothy white head. Aroma of citrus zest, spicey yeast, bread. Taste is funky with citrus and yeast. Earthy bitterness, not overly sweet or sour. Light body, soft carbonation. Very delicate.

MmmcKay (1052) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Pours light gold but really yellow in color. Smells like fresh twigs, yeast, and funk. Very earthy. Tastes like ginger, cardamom, and black pepper. Citrus flavors of course as well. Lemon and bitter orange.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Pours a lacing eggshell white head with a straw golden body containing particulates. Aromas of lemongrass and yeast. Flavor is dough, yeast, lemongrass, hint of spice. Body is creamy and smooth. Some bitterness on the finish.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 5, 2010
The purest expression of brett in a beer I have had, it totally takes over with its dry hay and horseblanket. Still some very light sweetness - room for even more brett? Madness! A brett-head’s dream.

Boutip (5133) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2010
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dark yellow color ale with a super huge foamy head with great retention and some great lacing as well. Aroma of fruity ester with lightly sweet malt and some dry Brett notes. Taste is also a well balanced mix between some lightly sweet malt with fruity ester and a dry Brett finish. Body is quite full with perfect carbonation and no apparent alcohol even though it is starting to feel like 8.9% after more then one glass. Well made though a tad too sweet for my taste.
