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 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.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2009 Should have pine tar. But still, there’s a band aid aroma over light tropical citrus. Bright gold and a fluffy white head. Strong singular brett character, light and summery.

oakbluff (432) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 3, 2009
Pours light golden with a massive soapy white head. The head releases an enticing aroma of sweet citrus and brett earthiness. Taste- brett plays a big role in this brew- very very dry, some alcohol heat, and lots of barnyard. Leather, rope, spice. There is still some fruity sweetness from the malt. Reminds me a lot like Jolly Pumpkin product. Mouthfeel is spritzy from the high carbonation. Drinkability is good, but my only complaint is the booziness.

thebaldwizard (1205) - Ohio, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Shared at DLD. Body is golden brown with a nice white head. Aroma is very citrusy, with a bit of spice in the back end. Light, crisp body--refreshing. Plenty of carbonation--normally throws me off--but it works well here. The flavor is light lemon/citrus flavors with bready yeast notes and some very light black pepper.
