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.

The rate and volume this beer produces head required about 20 minutes to fill my tulip, the towering cream head leaving heavy curtains, much less lacing along the edge. Smells like honey, spice, apricot or mold, similar to a hefeweizen, a deep cloudy amber. Nothing jumps out at first, a hint of bitterness from the hops perhaps, but then a profound dryness appears and casts a border around the sweet lemony notes backed up by a good yeast note. Lively is the right word for how this feels in the mouth, a smooth, uniform carbonation that doesn’t change from the moment you first take it in to the swallow. No real letdowns on the finish either, just good balance. Bottle #07356

Lasting frothy large white head atop a cloudy light golden body. Nose of Brooklyn Sorachi Ace. Good full lemony fruity and yeast and sea foam. Fun.

revolution2718 (322) - New Jersey, USA - APR 25, 2015
Pretty fresh 2015. Pours somewhat hazy golden, nice head. Nose is lots of barnyard funk, grassy, a little lemony citrus, a bit of tartness, earthy. Taste matches nose, lots of barnyard, very earthy, not so much tart as it is funky. Good, I'd like to also try one with some age on it.

AirForceHops (4079) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 25, 2015
750 ml bottle. 2013 vintage. Golden color with a ton of floating sea monkeys suspended in the liquid. Aroma is aroma is citrusy, with Brett and dusty yeast. Flavor is dusty Belgian yeast with a mild flowery hint. The Brett has taken over at this point with the flower and citrus being a secondary note at this juncture. The finish is musty with light citrus crispness. Pretty nice.

italianjohn (2439) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2015
Pale golden pour thin white head light lacing .... Aroma of funky Brett, sweet fruity yeast, citrusy lemon and light spice ..... Taste is of lemon, Brett, fruity yeast, little piney and light spices .... Has a nice bitter dry hop on the tongue .... Very smooth with nice balanced flavors .... Finishes with a dry funk and light lingering bitter hop .... All around a great saison. Kind of surprised this is their best beer

Beerconnaiseur (166) - BELGIUM - MAR 24, 2015
Creamy citrus barnyard.. Triple-ish honey flavour, too sweet, lacks depth, but it’s far better than most ’belgian’ fake triples. Beautiful hoppy honey aftersmell, linking to a mellow sweetness.

bartzluke (124) - Oklahoma, USA - MAR 19, 2015
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2015 10 oz pour from room-temp 2014 bomber into a stemmed tulip glass. Ridiculously fluffy head. Light golden-yellow. Very carbonated. A little creamy. Nose is nice- orange, floral. Taste is candied ginger, faint pine, some citrus. Refreshing. One of three best saisons I?ve had. Not my favorite style though.
