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.

Hazy golden with a thick white head. Aroma is nicely floral. Flavor is light and peppery with a slight citrus note. Some minor spice and coriander brighten the finish. Wife: 4.8

jinroh (942) - ESTONIA - JAN 31, 2016
Pours pale, bit hazy. Head is massive and actually stays for quite a long and leaves beautiful lacings. Aroma is barnyard and earth, just a bit of horse blanket. Some autumn fruits under there as well. Taste is mildly sweet, funky bitterness coming out well. Really smooth overall, just perfect saison.

An above average Brett saison that I'm glad seems to be readily available most places. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UXO (1128) - CANADA - JAN 11, 2016
Appearance: hazy pale gold with two fingers of rocky off-white head, excellent retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: complex, earthy funk, citrus zest, straw, stone fruit, vinous. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate tart, mild bitter, mild spice. (9/10) Palate: medium body, lively carbonation, off-dry funky finish. (5/5) Like saisons? Like brett? You owe it to yourself to find and try this. Really nicely done, with a nigh-on perfect balance of dry nearly vinous saison and funky brett characters. I’d love to try this after a couple of years of cellaring, to really give the brett time to get going, but it’s really, really good with just under a year on it. (18/20)

Svesse (7501) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2016
(Bottle) Golden colour with big, frothy, white head, leaving traces of lacing. Fruity, malty spicy nose with tropical fruit, mango, citrus, hay, grass, spicy hops and lots of earthy brett yeast aromas. Malty, fruity spicy taste with notes of bread, citrus, orange peel, lemon, grass, mango, passion-fruit, funky yeast and a finish with a generous spicy/grassy bitterness and earthy yeast flavours. Almost full body, with a touch of sweetness. The combination of the fresh grassy, spicy hops and the fresh bretty yeast character makes this on extremely enjoyable. And the balance is great. Excellent beer!

Rune (10000) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 21, 2015
750ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Bestillingsutvalget. Shared with Stefan, Finn, Elisabeth and Stefan. Initial huge, rocky, white head, some of it remaining while leaving spotty lacing behind. Cloudy golden in body colour. Fresh fruity aroma of peach and dusty hops. Fruity flavors of peach and orange joined by minerals and a basement touch. Mild acidic ending. Foamy in the mouth. Refreshing and pleasing (Big bottle session, Tromsø 16.12.2015).

kevinator (1730) - The Colony, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2015
This bottle had been aged for a while and seems to have held up. Strong aroma of sour fruit and funk. Somewhat cloudy ginger color with a big foamy head. Light crisp palate with a sharp finish. Funk up front with wheat and fermented fruit. A little grainy.
