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.

7/5/14. Draft at Bull McCabes. Nice earthy spicy nose. Pours a light straw yellow with a small but frothy head. Brett is present but not overwhelming. Nice variation on Tank 7. No weird spice notes just a solid saison with an exotic edge. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Subtle flavors and light tartness make this a very drinkable and refreshing brew. Very clear and pale in color, it goes down easy. Quite nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

swanmann (584) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 30, 2014
From the big bottle: It’s slightly hazy, golden with a touch of green hue, plenty of bright white, fairly well-sustained suds. Aromas of lemon, wet blankets, some black pepper, alcohol, some ester. Lightly tart and sweet, estery, earthy with a black pepper bite and some aspirin-like bitterness. Never disappoints. It’s not typical saison, it’s farmhouse to the bone.

ScipioA (247) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Classic saison appearance of hazy straw-yellow with a billowing white head. Funked and fruity esters on the nose and on the tongue. The taste is a little better than the aroma with some graininess and citrus/herbal hops joining as well. No complaints on the mouthfeel, refreshing with some brett to keep things interesting. Great stuff.

BrettTaylor (450) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Poured on tap. Nice creamy head. Aroma is typically spicy with undernotes of brett funk. Taste is pleasantly spicy, some citrus, sourness, and a touch of funk. This is very nice, crisp, and delicious.

Sample of 2012 and 2014 at Ale Alpharetta. Thanks Drew and Deb! Pours a hazy, light gold, wtih a big bubbly head. The aroma is butterscotch, mango, pineapple, and some light minerals. Sweet, with just a touch of funk and sourness. High carbonation, very bubbly, and acidic. Overall, this is an excellent, mellow, and tart beer.

Tasting at Matt’s
Hazy blond color, well carbonated. Nice aroma, pungent Brett, a bit fruity. Very dry, very carbonated, spicy but also with lingering fruitiness.
A lot of character here.
