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.

UPDATED: OCT 22, 2013 Initial rating 6/14/2013: Pours hazy gold with an intense, thick, foamy white head that lasts. A bit more carbonation than Tank 7 and a wonderful earthy, farmhouse aroma. Incredibly easy to drink with a smooth, medium-light body. A great saison-brett! Second rating 10/22/2013: Aged this bottle for exactly 5 months. Intense foam. Less carbonation than before and alcohol is more noticeable. Very, very smooth with an almost velvety texture. A bit funkier in taste- not quite more farmhouse but definitely something a wee bit earthy/peaty...perhaps just characteristically Brett? Not bad, but not amazing. Alcohol notes still rather strong compared to a slight fruitiness.

Bottle at home in a tulip while cooking Thanksgiving dinner. Pours a light orange-yellow with serious head. (Got a great BANG when I opened the bottle.) Aroma is fresh tropical fruits like mango and peach, funky brett strains, cereal, and some dank hops. BIG carb, tingly finish. Brett funk and earth on the end. Solid brett beer with mild fruits. Love it.

Bottle. Moderate aromas all around with grain and hay for the malt, dried grass for the hops, barnyard for the yeast, with hints of wood, white wine, dried peach and apricot.Head is large, frothy turning rocky, translucent white, with good thick lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is light hazy, yet highly sparkling medium amber. Flavor starts slightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and bitter, and still a touch of sweetness. Palate is light to medium, slick, with a fizzy carbonation. 17 An excellent mix of everything that is good in a Saison with not a thing offensive. I could drink this any time.

Bottle shared at sour tasting. Thanks Jon! Pours a neon yellow with a one-finger, pillowy white head. Banana cream pie on the nose with some stone fruit and light brett. Medium-light body with active carbonation. Great creamy mouthfeel that lasts throughout. Lots of things going on as it warms with the barnyard notes standing out as it warms. Nice, dry and fruit-forward finish. Wonderful.

Poured into a wine glass showing translucent neon yellow with a half a finger of lightly yellow foam. The nose shows a slight farmhous background with moderate notes of brett and orange. The palate is light bodied and highly carbonated. The flavors are extremely brett forward without any tartness; very similar to Orval. Light bitterness on the finish and a very light tartness throughout.

Frothy creamy white head. Big Brett and bananas and cream nose with pears in the background. Excellent carbonation, medium body, pears and tons of brett. So well integrated. Fantastic

750ml bottle, courtesy of Jow (many thanks!). Pours deep golden with a nice head. Aroma of brett, cheese, orange zest, yeasts, floral notes, amazing. Flavour is rich and balanced, medium sweet with a decent bitter end. Medium body, medium carbonation. Good stuff!

theOptimator (346) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Aroma is like a nice malty Saison with tangy hops, large floral, some citrus, pear..... alot going on here. Appearance is golden yellow with large mousse-y off white head that retains for along time. Taste is tangy floral sweet malt forward. Some cotton candy, citrus pear.... lots of complexities. Not particularly well attenuated. Would benefit greatly from aging IMO.... but still quite nice. Palate is medium but crisp. Overall an excellent Saison with the Brett just starting to show some complex flavors. Again, I could see this beer being really great if aged for a year or two. Right now it is one of the better Saisons I have had.

Courtesy of Jow, shared with friends at Johnny Off L. store in Rome-Italy. Pours orange cloudy, tick white cap. Nose: juicy sweet fruit, brett, zest. Mouth: medium carbonation, a bit too citric (more aging would have helped), fruity. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
