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 at Ft Wayne tasting - Pours hazy yellow with a huge white head. The aroma is of citrus hops, some alcohol, and a hint of brett. The taste is moderately hopped with some spices and grassy notes along with mild brett funkiness. It’s medium bodied and the alcohol is somewhat noticeable. Interesting beer.

Bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a very large foamy white head. Great lacing. Fantastic spicy citrus and brett aroma. Flavor is absolutely amazing. The brett really compliments the spicy saison flavor. Absolutely fantastic! If I could I would drink this everyday...

Totochtin (73) - Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2009
Big fluffy white head. Pours a cloudy golden color with some floating sediment. The aroma is citrus, resin, spice, and some dustiness. The flavor is lightly sweet and lightly tart with grapfruity hops, belgian fruity esters, spice, and brett funk. The carbonation is lively and it finishes with lightly bitter hops. This with the tartness keeps it quite drinkable. Overall: crisp, delicious, refreshing, and complex.

750 Bottles from Theisti and Tipsys. Big fluffy head, just a phenomenal nose - flowers, brett and spicy saison goodness. Taste is dominated by the funky brett, with the light, spicy, hoppy saison behind. Just awesome. Thanks Tim (note: this one’s in Denver now).

The holy grail of boulevards. This stuff is truly elixir of the gods. A nice fruity, light saison. Nice brett flavor as well.

Great bottle. Love the design. Pours a hazy, light honey amber with - no joke - the largest head I’ve ever seen on a beer. A side pour resulted in a three-inch monster of a head - thick and pillowy - and it’s still there. Really nice, mellow aroma - citrus (lemon and mandarin), some other, fleshier fruits (a bit of peach, maybe), spices, some yeast and just a bit of funk. Refreshing flavor - a bit of lime, even, which offsets a good amount of citrus / herbal hops, white pepper, and lots of fruity esters. It’s really bright, but doesn’t have as lively of a mouthfeel as I thought it would given the head (which I appreciated). Really nice brew, especially on a gorgeous sunny day like today.
