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.

Bottle pours golden orange with a full white head, somewhat retentive. Aromas of orange zest and dry hops with some characteristic Belgian sweetness. Rather acerbic mouthfeel. Taste is dry upfront, piny citrus, pear, lemon, some spice. One of the driest palettes I've experienced. Overall, a nice beer but not all that easy to drink.

Tastes a little soapy, first time I've tried a Brett. Luv the saison, but keep the Brett. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber into a tulip glass. pours a cloudy yellow, with a massive white head that persists, leaving good lacing. Nose is wheat with a faint note of funk. Taste is typical saison with a slight sour note and a bit of funk on the finish. Delicious

DiarmaidBHK (3385) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Draft from Mekong. Pours yellow with a white head. Doesn’t leave much lacing. Has some sourness on the nose. Fairly tart on the tongue with a hint of the barnyard you’d expect from the style. Finish lingers in a good way. Ice but not as outstanding as I was hoping.

MWMBeerguy (85) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 16, 2014
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
