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 shared by pineypower, thanks Dean. Poured about an inch of clear gold liquid underneath about 6 inches of pillowy bright white head. Aroma is all Brett and citrus. Medium bodied with average to stronger carbonation. Flavor much like the aroma is dominated by Brett, citrus and earth round out this one. Solid.

pours a cloudy golden color with a huge off white head that takes a few minutes to calm down. Aroma is of brett, that plasticy almost band aid note, but not to the point that its a turn off, also slight notes of some grain. Taste is complex the funky brett is there for the whole ride, but it goes nicely with some fruity, yeasty notes, some vanilla and maybe some grainy notes hiding in there too. Very well done.

750 ml bottle shared with a friend. Pours a hazy yellow, some gold but more pale straw! With a huge offwhite head that laces well. Aromas are a nice smooth yeasty base, some funky dust and hay with fruity pear and apple esters, a touch of graininess, vanilla, the funk really is there in a sturdy amount. Initial is a decent carbonation, decent bitterness, dust and funky hay, barnyard, apples and pear, with some decent grainy malts, a mellow sweetness that gets swallowed up by the funky brett. Finish is decent bitterness and funky, a nice marriage of balance with sturdy brett element. Nice, lighter side of medium bodied with a good overall feel. A solid saison, but perhaps I was expecting just a bit more after all this time.

Bottle split among friends in tulip glasses. It poured a great two finger white head that lasted. It was a clear apricot colored brew till we added the lees then it clouded right up. The Brett aroma was right up front. This strain has one of the best aromas of all I have experienced. There was a light sweetness to it as well as some fruitiness. The flavor was sour but with a good balance of sweat fruits. The interesting thing was that as it warmed up it did get a little sweeter. It had a light to medium feel in my mouth with and good carbonation. It drank extremely well and this brew is back on my want list. Try this beer its is great

750 ml. bottle. Number 885 of 13400. Batch 2009-2. Pours a huge fluffy, tiny bubbled white head, with sea foam lacing, over a hazy, with some particles, yellow (SRM 3) body....nose is lemon, apple, allspice, bit of pepper, and barnyard.....taste is light citrus (lemon primarily) leading light sweet apple tones, then heavy barnyard funk, finishing dry....mouth feel is light, carbonation high. The Brett comes through with a bang, and the rest of the flavors meet the style exactly. It is a bit high in ABV for a Saison, but this is reasonably hidden. BJCP 8/3/15/4/8

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 (1908) - 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.
