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.

5000 (6300) - 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.

Bottle shared by the "King of Anchorage" at tasting in Jun ’15: Poured a jello yellow orange with a fluffy white head. Aroma is peppery and dirty funk. Taste was nice fruit and peppery funk.

umich03jm (2702) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Bottle. Aroma is very floral, moderate lemon, some light tropical fruit and brett. Tastes like liquid flowers with light brett, lemon, and pepper. I think I’d like this much better with a couple years in the cellar to bring out the brett more

mikesaum (630) - Newark, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Pours a darker yellow with a very fluffy white head that hangs around. Aroma is slightly peppery, funky horse blanket, fruity esters. Taste is about the same, pepper, horse blanket farmhouse funk, and slightly grassy hop background. Over all a fantastic brew.

tmongoose (1638) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 4, 2015
Draft to glass and this beer is amazing. Slightly cloudy yellow with white head. Huge wet horse blanket nose with a pure saison underlying flavor. The flavor is just the opposite you get the pure goodness of the saison with that wet horse blanket of the Brett. Totally amazing beer how they got the two flavors to blend so well together.
