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 ďBrettĒ character, if thatís what youíre after.

Pours a cloudy straw color with a HUGE white head. Tons of bubbles streaming up. Aroma is fantastic; banana, clove, lemon. Taste is peppery and has that Belgian yeast character. Soda-like carbonation. Outstanding saison.

Almost a bit watery. Nice Brett nose. Flavor is hop and sweetness of honey and light Brett. Tangy and balanced. A nice Brett beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with large white head. Aroma and taste are floral, spices, biscuit, and some brett.

I expected sour notes out of this, given the "brett" part of its name, but this tastes much more like a bitter saison than it does a mix of two styles. Even I never should have expected the crossover flavor, I'm still left disappointed in that bitter finish. It starts relatively sweet and it's pretty to look at, but I'm not crazy about the floral scent and end taste. Not a bad beer, but not one I'd drink again.

Holy head on the pour. Prob not using the right glass but very impressive. It tastes like a base Tank 7 but not as thick and cloudy. An earthy tone seems accurate. A bit funky but not in a bad way. New to the style, dont have alot to compare it to but definately unique.

750 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. The pour is a dark foggy golden color with a humongous pillowy gray colored head that falls to a light film and thick collar leaving a couple spots of lace. The aroma is pretty spicy and malty. There isnít the traditional yeasty malt, which Iím okay with, but this is not what I was expecting at all. Itís relatively disappointing. I was hoping for more funky Brett and sourness than they have here. The flavor is malty and standard for a saison. Itís Belgian malts and a little bit of yeast. There is almost Brett in the flavor. Itís a run of the mill saison. The mouth feel is a little heavy, but the carbonation is bright and there is a lingering malt and yeastiness with it that make it just okay. I am pretty disappointed in this one.

Bottle shared with koleminer20, and Gus for our mini share extravaganza. Aroma is lovely, funk, barnyard, crisp, citrus, tart, nice. Appearance is golden amber, hazy, off white head. Taste is sweet, slight tart, dry, permanent marker harshness, spicy, not as funky as I want. Mouthfeel is medium body, light carbonation, a nice citrus and spice aftertaste. Overall, this one is pretty weird, unlike any saison Iíve had. Good, but not as good as expected.

16/V/16 - sample @ Leuven Innovation - BB: n/a (2016-566) Thanks to the Belgian RB crew for sharing todayís beers!

Hazy blond beer, big creamy white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a bit of lacing in the glass. Aroma: very soapy, floral, bit funky, more soap. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: floral, bit soapy, spicy touch, somewhat bitter, coriander. Aftertaste: rather bitter, dry, more soapy, bit floral. Not a fan of all that soap. Probably the mix of brett and hops?

Some horse blanket, some sweet malts, some citrus zest. Taste is sweet malts, citrus, and straw. Not enough Brett.

10cl sample from bottle at the Leuven Innovation Beer Festival II 2016 (16 V 2016). The "assertively dry hopped Tank 7, bottled with various wild yeasts. An American farmhouse saison which already was a perfect drinker, although I lacked the spices in there. Here there are more grassy notes, some dust too, making this a perfect quencher. A very smooth, sunny yellow, white foamed saison with lovely carbonation. I woudl love to compare this brett version with the Tank 7 mother brew.
