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.

Sampled at hellbilly’s hellraiser 3.0 tasting. Fermented fruit and grain aroma. Yellow body with white head. Dry grainy flavor with some fruits in background and a spicey bitterness.

Bottle shared by psprings at hellbilly’s hellraiser 3.0 tasting. Pours a hazy gold with a bubbly white head. The nose is lemon zest, light funk and spicy yeast. The taste is sour citrus, yeast, barnyard funk and light spice with a nice dry finish. Light prickly body. Good stuff – thanks Paul!

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2011 Thank you SoLan! Looks lovely. glowing with a killer, filigreed white head. A fascinating aroma includes melon skins, fruit pulps, lemon rind, and nice stuff like that. The body is juicier in comparison, and has a nice sweetness for balance. Flavors include orange, kumquat, starfruit. Lots of fruits that are both sweet and acidic. A healthy, refreshing, lively, enjoyable, flavorful saison. 8-5-8-4-14 Re-rate 2011. Not the nicest color, a bright yellow like pee. This aroma is one of the CLEANEST Brett aromas in beerdom. Undiluted, unadulterated, pure dry, woody and characterful bug. So superbly dry and astringent with citrus peel, kumquat skin, and pith. Great Brett finish. One of the best Brett beers in America.9-3-9-4-17

Who doesn’t love the Brett yeast? This is a light saison with a funky nose (not funky in a bad way, of course) -- the taste doesn’t disappoint. It’s a medal-winning brett you could drink all night long.

AgentSteve (1614) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - FEB 10, 2009
Thanks to Mreusch for this, my highest rated Saison. Foggy bright golden pour with a finger thick white head. The nose is unmistakably Brett and moderately sweet citrus as is the flavor. Slightly full mouthfeel with some liveliness.

2008; 750mL bottle #05049/11950, via trade with beastiefan2k. I originally had this at BCTC 2007, and I’m happy to have the chance to try it again. Pours a hazy golden color, topped with a huge rocky off-white head. Beautiful musty, barnyardy bretty aroma, with highlights of citrus and light spice. Palate is very dry, with wheat, brett, white pepper and mild spice. I’m a huge fan of bretty farmhouse ales, and this does not disappoint!

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Hazy golden in color with a very large, long lasting pillowy white head. Great aroma: tart citrus, pepper, moderate funk, musty basement. Taste has tart citrus/orange and lemon rind, some peppery saison spice, moderately funky and tart with horseblanket- overall nice and dry with active carbonation and a light hop bitterness in the finish. Perfect amount of brett character in this beer. Excellent, thanks alot Ethan.

ryanknock (150) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 21, 2009
A beer more in balance than overpowered by sourness, this Saison has a nice hop and ester spiciness, is slightly creamy, and sour with a bitter finish. Hints of pears, apples, bannana, with notes of wheat, grass and a very citrus, noticabley orange, character to it. Very smooth and refreshing.
