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!

Dense gold pour, beautiful white head. Aroma is brett, yeast, mango, barnyard. Flavor is yeasty, with notes of light cake, and fruit. Very light crisp heavenly mouthfeel. Wonderful.

Draft from Mekong. Pours yellow with a white head. Doesnít leave much lacing. Has some sourness on the nose. Fairly tart on the tongue with a hint of the barnyard youíd expect from the style. Finish lingers in a good way. Ice but not as outstanding as I was hoping.

Smells medicinal and a bit like anbisol. Very carbonated and a pours 90% foam. Tastes pretty good for a beer whose aroma does nothing for me. Fair ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

7/5/14. Draft at Bull McCabes. Nice earthy spicy nose. Pours a light straw yellow with a small but frothy head. Brett is present but not overwhelming. Nice variation on Tank 7. No weird spice notes just a solid saison with an exotic edge. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Subtle flavors and light tartness make this a very drinkable and refreshing brew. Very clear and pale in color, it goes down easy. Quite nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

swanmann (589) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 30, 2014
From the big bottle: Itís slightly hazy, golden with a touch of green hue, plenty of bright white, fairly well-sustained suds. Aromas of lemon, wet blankets, some black pepper, alcohol, some ester. Lightly tart and sweet, estery, earthy with a black pepper bite and some aspirin-like bitterness. Never disappoints. Itís not typical saison, itís farmhouse to the bone.

Classic saison appearance of hazy straw-yellow with a billowing white head. Funked and fruity esters on the nose and on the tongue. The taste is a little better than the aroma with some graininess and citrus/herbal hops joining as well. No complaints on the mouthfeel, refreshing with some brett to keep things interesting. Great stuff.
