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.

Ughsmash (7184) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 27, 2009
Thanks to someone for opening this at Flossmoor! Poured hazy paler golden with a creamy cap of whitish head. The aroma picked up tangy lemon zest, Brett funkage, and earth over paler and fruity maltage.. quite nice! The flavor found pale and fruity malt sweetness at the core with fine lemon zest and spicage around.. dry and funky with great balance. Medium-bodied with a whole bunch of carbonation on the palate (which worked here).. lengthy finish. This was just what I needed!

750 ml bottle number 11925 from the Bayou. Wow, what an awesome addition to Utah! Pours a cloudy orange with a thick white head. The nose was light yeast, subdued brett, citrus also. The flavor was like a good champagne; sweet and dry flavors, yeast, light malts and a touch of funkiness from the brett. A nice beer.

UPDATED: APR 26, 2009 Courtesy of sebletitje. Pours hazy deep gold with mildly frothy off white head. The aroma is citrus tartness, crushed aspirin, a bit of apple and other assorted fruity notes. The taste is a bit earthy and mild funk goodness that grows into Brett like tartness. Midway it gets very tart and heads into the finish with a modest level of earthy funk.

The flavor starts with apple and citrus along with some faint yeastiness. The finish has moderate floral notes along with some light brettiness. Light-medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.
