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.

Bottled, bought in Spokane, WA. Cloudy golden, lively head. Grassy hoppy nose with funky sweaty brett underneath. Medium dry with gentle mouthfeel and mildl sparkling carbonation. The Orvallish sweaty bitterorange funky brett character is strong, but it still retains balance. Finishes with evergrowing bitterness. Lovely!
