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.

Bottle @ Pauls saison tasting. Light golden pour with some white head. Brett infused, spice, light malt and hop tones. Brett dominates, well i enjoy that.

Cloudy golden with big white head. Sweet bready yeast, light citrus nose. Clean tasting and medium body. Honey malt finish. The bretts balance the sweet malts and bitter hops. Actually a very lovely beer. I wish these were available in California as Boulevard Brewing is doing great things.

2009 Bottle (#8683): Pours a light golden with a large, creamy off-white head. Sticky lacing. Nose is floral and slightly sweet. A little bit medicinal. Tastes of tangy florals, grassey, and brett. Gets some medicinal notes too. Nothing real funky or earthy or sour, just a little off-putting in the end. Dissapointed...

Thanks bro. Pours murky gold with a HUGE foamy white head. Aroma has some acidity (lemon?) and floral notes like pine and juniper berries. Faint lemon and sweetness with some baking spices and a bitterness that comes out of nowhere. Fairly substantial body that foams as it moves and some sharpness from the carbonation and ends in a subtle lingering bitterness. Didnt really like this at first, but the complexity was easier to grasp as it warmed.

Bottle, thanks to my secret santa. This was a huge want for me. Clear golden pour with frothy white head. Aroma is very bretty, some pear, and saison yeast too. Taste is pretty rough, lots of alcohol and brett, reminds me of Bruery Saison Rue, but slightly better. Palate is good, a bit hot at times, but well carbonated and saison like (I like the brett caracter here). A very good saison, but not the best.

Bottle, gift from our Mes yet again. Hazy yellow gold with big fluffy white head. Stunning aroma, flavour and palate. Right up my street this is. Superb beer. Has Saison qualities but the brett just lifts it to a higher level. Lovely finish. Awesome beer.

A: Straw yellow with a very large amount of white head. S: Lots of earthiness coming from the brett here, as well as some citrus and a few earthy hops. T: Not much of the typical saison spice, the main focus here is definitely the earthiness of the brett. Perhaps the brett was let shine a little too much, as I didnt detect many of the other saison signatures. M: Medium bodied with a good dose of carbonation. D: Quite drinkable and very refreshing on a hot summer evening. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-24-2009

Thank you Josh for the bottle! 09. Light, dulled yellow in the glass. Aroma is herbal, light malt, brett, and some related mild earthy funk. Taste has a lot of earth/oak up front with medium tart in the middle, and some sharper tart/funk on the finish. Great beer but I preferred the regular saison just a bit more as it came across as more balanced.

750ml Bottle: Aroma of Brett, light citrus, and yeast. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, creamy, loose, off-white head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of Brett, light yeast, slight citrus, light tangerine, and malt. Light to medium body. Thinish texture. Average to lively carbonation. Medium sweet, Brett, fruit, and yeast finish is lightly dry. 8.5%ABV is completely hidden throughout.
