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 ďBrettĒ character, if thatís what youíre after.

750ml bottle into a tulip. From notes. A: Pours a hazy yellow color with tons of carbonation and even some yeast floaties. The eggshell-colored head is tall (three fingers high) and quite foamy in texture. While its texture is inconsistent, the lacing left behind is...well, itís inconsistent. Looks nice, though. S: The funk here is subtle, and itís backed by some citrusy notes. As it sits in the glass, it develops a nice earthen tone, with some lesser qualities of black pepper and phenols. Some very timid sourness can also be caught. This aroma has some nice complexity, I must say. T: Bready, spicy yeast hits the palate first. Itís funkiness gradually builds on the palate, but never to the point of excess. The finish is nice and citrusy, with some underlying lemon notes. Complex, but in a soft, suggestive way: it never bludgeons the palate in any manner M: Indeed, this is a soft yet full brew - a bit too astringent though. Not like it matters, because this is dry, fizzy, and immensely drinkable. I really donít want this to end. O: I love Tank 7 and I love this. If I have to nitpick (and I always have to, every single time) itís that the complexity is a bit concealed. Luckily, discovering all of its nuances is such an enjoyable experience. Iíll definitely have to get more next year!

750ml corked bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a huge white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is lemon and yeast with some earthy notes. Taste is a lemon tartness with a spicy and earthy hop bitterness and a dry yeasty finish. Light to medium bodied with generous carbonation that pleases the palate. Overall, a solid saison that is quite tasty and nicely balanced and recommended.

Foamy white head that quickly left a small ring and light lace. Fuller-bodied than expected for a Saison. Complex mix of earthy citrus flavors. Blood oranges. Passionfruit. Chanterelle mushrooms. Mandarin pips. Fruitifully wonderful! Wow, actually a really nice full blend for a Saison. Touch sour.

kaser (4082) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Bright yellowish orange pour from draft at Temple Bar. Has the "diaper" aroma I usually get from Brett beers. Very good though. Yeast and fruits. Super refreshing on a hot day

A very effervescent pour of light gold with a dense tight bubbled white head that is quite persistent. The nose is amazing with the sweet Belgian Brett yeast and subtleties of citrus and spice. A subtle flavor of lemon on a rich, crisp palate finishes with a hint of spice and caramel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not my favourite style. Had an aftertaste that limited the enjoyment. Person that shared it definitely liked it but I was not as big a fan. Not a beer that I would revisit; however, for people who like the style worth the experience.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden yellow with a billowing white head. Cork shot out of the bottle during the opening and hit the ceiling. Aroma has a nice funkiness to it along with some herbal saison notes. Lively carbonation that just dances on the tongue. Flavor is excellent with an abundance of barnyard funk and horse blanket followed by a pleasant amount of hoppy bitterness in the finish. Very nice beer!

On tap at JL Beers on July 4th -- Good looking Saison, golden with lots of pillowy foam. Aroma is sweet and bretty. Thatís a good bretty-saison. Really best way to describe it is a Saison whoís sweetness was dried out by brett. yum.
