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.

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, it’s inconsistent. Looks nice, though. S: The funk here is subtle, and it’s 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. It’s 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 don’t 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) it’s that the complexity is a bit concealed. Luckily, discovering all of its nuances is such an enjoyable experience. I’ll definitely have to get more next year!

Pretty fresh 2015. Pours somewhat hazy golden, nice head. Nose is lots of barnyard funk, grassy, a little lemony citrus, a bit of tartness, earthy. Taste matches nose, lots of barnyard, very earthy, not so much tart as it is funky. Good, I'd like to also try one with some age on it.

AirForceHops (4067) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 25, 2015
750 ml bottle. 2013 vintage. Golden color with a ton of floating sea monkeys suspended in the liquid. Aroma is aroma is citrusy, with Brett and dusty yeast. Flavor is dusty Belgian yeast with a mild flowery hint. The Brett has taken over at this point with the flower and citrus being a secondary note at this juncture. The finish is musty with light citrus crispness. Pretty nice.

Pale golden pour thin white head light lacing .... Aroma of funky Brett, sweet fruity yeast, citrusy lemon and light spice ..... Taste is of lemon, Brett, fruity yeast, little piney and light spices .... Has a nice bitter dry hop on the tongue .... Very smooth with nice balanced flavors .... Finishes with a dry funk and light lingering bitter hop .... All around a great saison. Kind of surprised this is their best beer

Beerconnaiseur (164) - BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2015
Creamy citrus barnyard.. Triple-ish honey flavour, too sweet, lacks depth, but it’s far better than most ’belgian’ fake triples. Beautiful hoppy honey aftersmell, linking to a mellow sweetness.

bartzluke (94) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 19, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2015 10 oz pour from room-temp 2014 bomber into a stemmed tulip glass. Ridiculously fluffy head. Light golden-yellow. Very carbonated. A little creamy. Nose is nice- orange, floral. Taste is candied ginger, faint pine, some citrus. Refreshing. One of three best saisons I?ve had. Not my favorite style though.

Bottle at Seattle Share. Part of the blind brett saison tasting. Huge creamy head. Lemony haze. Bright brett, gorgeous clean, bright beer. A little green. Classic.

MrMeadMan (42) - Amesbury, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 26, 2015
Pours a light cloudy straw yellow with a thick white head that persists. Nice grapefruit notes, background bitterness that complements the light malt. A good sour tang balances the whole brew out. Overall a great beer consistent with the style!

veronneaupy (215) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 25, 2015
un nez rafraichissant d’agrumes, de funk et de pêches. En bouche, cest frais, fruité et minéral. on goute bien la levure et un petit piquant sur la langue qui nous vient des brett. En finale, le côté mineral, pétillant et le caractère sauvage des brett s’estompent tranquillement pour nous donner le gout de prendre une autre gorgée.
