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 thats what youre after.

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 thats funky without taking it to a sour level. Good stuff.

on tap @ Party Town (Friday Night Flights) / Florence KY --- Light sour aroma. Hazy medium golden amber, white head that drops to a full cover, stripes of lace. Taste is caramel malt resting in full carbonation, turning sour more than bitter in the end. Doesnt match the Saison profile, but who cares - its really good, so who cares.

Funky barnyard going on here in a good way on the nose....some licorice. Taste is complex, dark fruit, some pepper spiciness also, but still effervescent and refreshing. Really nice.

Opened 8-9-16. Letting it warm up and air out is helping. Overall I'm pretty inexperienced with brett beers. If I can get past the rubber note I'll enjoy this more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Almost a bit watery. Nice Brett nose. Flavor is hop and sweetness of honey and light Brett. Tangy and balanced. A nice Brett beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with large white head. Aroma and taste are floral, spices, biscuit, and some brett.

I expected sour notes out of this, given the "brett" part of its name, but this tastes much more like a bitter saison than it does a mix of two styles. Even I never should have expected the crossover flavor, I'm still left disappointed in that bitter finish. It starts relatively sweet and it's pretty to look at, but I'm not crazy about the floral scent and end taste. Not a bad beer, but not one I'd drink again.

Holy head on the pour. Prob not using the right glass but very impressive. It tastes like a base Tank 7 but not as thick and cloudy. An earthy tone seems accurate. A bit funky but not in a bad way. New to the style, dont have alot to compare it to but definately unique.

750 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. The pour is a dark foggy golden color with a humongous pillowy gray colored head that falls to a light film and thick collar leaving a couple spots of lace. The aroma is pretty spicy and malty. There isnt the traditional yeasty malt, which Im okay with, but this is not what I was expecting at all. Its relatively disappointing. I was hoping for more funky Brett and sourness than they have here. The flavor is malty and standard for a saison. Its Belgian malts and a little bit of yeast. There is almost Brett in the flavor. Its a run of the mill saison. The mouth feel is a little heavy, but the carbonation is bright and there is a lingering malt and yeastiness with it that make it just okay. I am pretty disappointed in this one.
