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.

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.

trevor211 (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2009
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.

Bottle 07572 thanks to Bman1113vr. The smell is spices, fruits, brett, yeast, and funky. The look is cloudy, golden in color, and has a decent white head. The taste is malts, tart, funk, fruits, and dry.

750 ml bottle shared at one of Hellbilly’s tastings - Pours a hazy light golden color with a one finger thick white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma and flavor is mostly esters and spice. There is a light amount of sourness to this beer. A nice beer.
