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.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle:   Pretty sure this is 2010 vintage.   Golden straw, very hazy and dirty, huge frothy/fizzy white head (appears infected to a degree), with fairly nice lacing.   Huge bretty character, funky, basement, barnish/blanket notes.   Tart and dry on the tongue.   However, it has seemed to lose most of its floral/sweet aspects.   I should have tried this last year.   Still has a great nose, but I think I let it sit for too long.   Airy on the tongue, almost too airy.   Certainly gained a lot of Brett character, but at the expense of the Saison.   Still rather enjoyable tho.

Claves77 (251) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2016 Super fizzy with too much foam. Airy sour smell. Bit well balanced, too much upfront.

Bif (2062) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 1, 2016
On tap. Pours a hazy golden color with white head and some lacing. Aroma of fruit, quite floral and hint of yeast. Taste of fruit, bit of malt sweetness, with trace of spice and grain. Nice bitterness with a slightly tart finish. Medium body, smooth and well crafted with not hint of the 8.5% ABV. Very enjoyable

drpimento (3175) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2016
Aroma is Citrus yeast in space. Flavor pretty much follows the name of the beer because it’s a saison defined and Modified by Brett.

pivo (2667) - GERMANY - SEP 18, 2016
Deep hazy gold, fluffy head. Brett a gogo on the nose. Big sour body smacks into your taste buds immediately. Yeasty, spicy, complex. Amazing that this was brewed in the new world. nice. Something in the aftertaste is slightly off but overall very good.

cmacklin (880) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 11, 2016
750ml bottle. (2015 release) Pours a cloudy orange with some sediment floating around and a huge, frothy, long lasting, white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet, fruity aroma of lemon, wheat malt and light brettanomyces. Sweet fruity flavour of lemon, wheat malt, spicy yeast and alcohol with a dry, bitter, slightly tart finish. Medium body with a smooth, oily texture and lively carbonation. Well balanced. An excellent saison.
