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.

750 mL bottle into a tulip glass Appearance: Nice and bright golden yellow with a huge fluffy head. I cant recall seeing a head as thick as this one. Just awesome. Smell: A faint hint of funk on top of a typical Belgian nose. Not picking up a whole lot of spice Taste: A bit sweeter than typical for this style with only a slight bit o sourness. The sour level is absolutely perfect. Maybe some green apple and white grape notes on the finish but not to dry at all. Mouthfeel: Medium body, nice and crisp. Drinkability: Prefect, The mouth fell and subtle sour notes make this one a joy t drink Overall I love the complexity of this beer. Its just a delicate style and to get just right is amazing. Need More ! Serving type: bottle

Poured about an inch of clear gold liquid underneath about 6 inches of pillowy bright white head. Aroma is all Brett and citrus. Medium bodied with average to stronger carbonation. Flavor much like the aroma is dominated by Brett, citrus and earth round out this one. Solid.

Milky gold beer. Thick frothy white head. Soft frothy and semi dry palate. Typically mildly sour saison but balanced perfectly. A little elderflower sweetness offset by hop bitterness in the finish. A little spicy aniseed. A very decent saison.

Bottle, sparse notes, drank 4/2010, left a lasting impression. Pours a straw yellow with thick white head, lots of lacing. Aroma great of citrus, grass, herbal hops, slight funk, and an array of spices. Flavor matches well and makes for one hell of a brew.

bbrock81 (317) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - MAY 19, 2011
750 mL bottle, cellared approx. 2 years. Pours bright yellow with a very foamy white head. Aroma of citrus, grass, herbs and spices (especially ginger), a bit of hops and a bit of earthy yeastiness. Flavor is pretty close to the regular saison (as I recall), being light, fairly citrusy, a bit spicy, with a pronounced sweetness, and unfortunately very little brett influence. A good beer, as I really like the regular saison, but a disappointment on the brett front.

On tap - Lake Flying Saucer. 2009 vintage from the brewery rep himself. Thanks, Jeremiah! Hazy yellow pour with a decent amount of white head. Funky barnyard, lemon, herbal, and spicy hop aromas. Smells great! Flavors of brett, oak, and more herbal hops. Cant wait to pick up a bottle of this years batch!

Bottled, number 2599/13400 (batch 2009-2). Yellow-orange with loads of fine, sand-colored yeast particles suspended throughout. Bright-white head is medium in size yet mostly lasting. Orange zest aroma with some vanilla cookies, straw, mild earth and ginger. Straw and dried grass flavor up front, mild sourness and mild to moderate sweetness, again I pick up some candied ginger along with lemon peel and light black pepper. Nice, very pillowy mouthfeel and low, yet tingly carbonation. I expected some more funk from the Brett, so I have to admit I was a bit disappointed overall. Wish I would have tried this side by side with their regular saison as Im not quite sure how much effect the Brett had.

The beer pours a medium cloudy honey gold with lots of carbonation. The head rises about 4 fingers of creamy off white head. There is very good retention and decent retention. The aroma is light but balanced. There is a nice earthiness to it, a light yeasty sourness to it. I really like the aroma. The taste is off from the aroma, I was hoping to get some nice sourness and there was none. It was more like just drinking a regular saison. Lots of earth and yeast with a light sour note at the end. The feel is pretty full, very tannic feeling afterwards. The drinkability is a little down just because its kind of boring to drink. Overall, this was ok, expecting a little more.
