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.

freeofthoughts (688) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - JUN 7, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 19, 2014 2012 batch 1 - Bottle pours hazy golden yellow with lots of white suds. The aroma is sweet and musty, a combination of yeasts and grain. The taste is smooth, clean and refreshing. It unfurls in many complex ways with lemon zesty citrus, sweet grainy sugar, floral imparts, an earthy funky yeast with a bit of dry green grass. The carbonation is lively and sparks much of the lingering flavors and presents a brisk slightly moist but drying involved palate. This beer is light but strong, crisp but deep, hopped well but not overly dry, in it?s own right it is awesome. This is something special.

Bif (2053) - 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 (3128) - 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 (2665) - 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 (856) - 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.

rumproasts (5050) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Bottle. Pale golden with one finger head. Funky Brett barnyard. Just a bit fruity and tart. Nicely funky. Would be a really nice introduction to sours.

kingaugusta (235) - Georgia, USA - AUG 16, 2016
Pours hazy blonde with a fine white head. Nose is a nice blend of tart apple, white wine and a touch of floral hops on top of a Belgian pale malt. Flavor shows off those brettanomyces in a balanced manner. Finish is sticky and smooth. A rare saison that’s funky without taking it to a sour level. Good stuff.
