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.

Corked 750. Pours a hazy, sedimenty, golden yellow color with a big foamy white head. Nose is grassy hops, a nice earthy and lightly barny Brett note, light alcohol. Palate is pretty full and stinging, lovely layers left on the tongue. Flavors of grassy hops, farmyard notes, fairly in your face and I like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dhatton (214) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - SEP 18, 2015
Pours a hazy golden body with 3 fingers of loose, pillowy foam that deflates into sticky patches. Nose is ripe blueberries, fragrant florals, some spice, and damp grass aromas. Earthy taste of funky yeast, hay, mild citrus peels with a lingering spicy finish. Chewy texture, medium body. Nice carbonation and crispness. Lovely farmhouse ale.

Sigmund (5831) - Tau, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2015
750 ml bottle, vintage 2013, probably from Vinmonopolet. ABV is 8.5%.Pale golden colour, only slightly hazy. Huge and lasting white head. Lovely aroma of saison yeast and brett, with fruity and peppery notes, hints of farmhouse. Medium sweet but still quite crisp flavour with peppery notes, distinct bittering hops.

Hazy golden with a white pillowy head. Aroma is spicy, with a hint of wild yeast. Flavor is spice and citrus, some added character from the Brettanomyces.

On Draught,
Itís really about damn time I rated this, Iíve had it dozens of times and yet this was the first time I felt inclined to take notes...
Pours a lightly hazy straw color with a huge fluffy white head and lots of lacing on the glass. For what itís worth itís hard for me to imagine a beer looking more appealing in a glass than this.

The aroma leads with that wet limestone basement thing with some mild pineapple, some floral notes, and a light bit of funk & hay.

The flavor is dry but fruity with some light banana-on-pineapple thing happening. Itís got a mild bit of pepper and even less clove. Itís got a great floral bitterness and a good minerallity.

What can i say here, itís a neo-classic for a reason.

skeils (10) - Chester Springs, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2015
750 ml bottle from Wegmanís in Downingtown, PA. This is basically Tank 7ís interesting, funky, older sister who attends art school and goes hiking a lot. Aroma is yeasty, earthy and tranquillo lemon. More earthy compared to Tank 7ís floral. Strong carbonation, rather fizzy and pours with and solid 1/4 inch head and attractive lacing. Taste is citrus and earthy with a nice dry, pinch of pepper finish. Complex, yet fun and refreshing.

Not my thing. Cellared for 2 years, may have been too long. Overly bitter for a farmhouse ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
