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.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2009
Pros: Excellent appearance, gorgeous rocky head. Totally exotic and unique, with flavors and aromas of pineapple, tangerine, orange. Densely loaded with taste. Terrific mouth feel.

Cons: Not a single flaw in this seamlessly constructed effort.

A beautiful beer in every way.

oh6gdx (25965) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2017
Bottled. Hazy orange colour with a small off-white long-lasting head. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruits, some wood, mild funk. Flavour is dry wooden, some citrus, earth, herbs, grass and mild floral notes. Mouthdrying palate, but at the same time refreshing. Easy to drink.

tapefuzz (286) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 17, 2017
750mL bottle. Pours hazy gold with a large white head. Aroma is lemon, funk, leather, grass, citrus, and apple. Taste is yeast, earth, leather, light funk, apple, honey, wheat, clove, murky citrus, and lots of pepper. Lingering honey, yeast, pepper, and barnyard. Medium body. Moderate but prickly carbonation. Creamy, foamy mouthfeel. Complex and strange, but not wholly satisfying.

scarletfire65 (1382) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2016
Vintage 2015. Bottle at home with the wife, Caressa, and Apollo. Clear golden pour, huge white head, visible carbonation. The aroma is light Brett - leather, earthy, horseblanket, funk. Lots of lemon on the nose as well. Medium bodied, carbonation true to style. Starts off with an underlying malty sweetness, lots of spice coming in, with coriander, grains of paradise, white pepper, and rye. Finishes grassy and dry with a touch of alcohol. Outstanding saison.

Lo mejor del estilo, pura fruta. Huele a pia, banana, manzana asada, frutos rojos, frutas de hueso. Por detrs el olor caracterstico del brett. Dar un solo trago es imposible. Recuerda a una especie de Riesling carbonatado. Delicioso

EvanFriend (517) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2016
Light and lemony, lemon is the primary flavor here, but with noticeable funk as well. Some moderate yeast spiciness, lots of hop flavor but not too bitter. Outstanding beer.

rubyroo (146) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 20, 2016
2015 vintage- Aroma of barnyard, lemon, wheat. Appearance is a straw yellow with a huge white head that tries to escape the glass. Massive chunks of lace. Taste is funky, white pepper, lemon, tangy wheat. Palate is medium-thin with a dry and lightly bitter finish. Overall- Highly balanced and delicious, good mix of Brett character and saison pepperiness.

superspak (5113) - Michigan, USA - NOV 5, 2016
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 1/22/2016. Pours lightly hazy bright golden yellow color with a 2-3 finger dense and rocky white head with insane retention, that reduces to a large cap that lasts the whole glass. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with plenty of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Insane appearance. Aromas of big pineapple, peach, pear, lemon zest, orange zest, apple, hay, straw, floral, grass, peppercorn, clove, wheat, bread, light honey, musty funk, light leather, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical hops, fruity/spicy/funky yeast, and moderate pale malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big pineapple, peach, pear, lemon zest, orange zest, apple, peppercorn, clove, hay, straw, floral, grass, wheat, bread, light honey, musty funk, light leather, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Big peppery/spicy yeast and light herbal/floral hop bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, citrus peel, pepper, clove, wheat, bread, hay, straw, grass, musty funk, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops, fruity/spicy/funky yeast, and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/spicy yeast balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, dry, prickly/foamy, and lightly creamy/grainy balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a world class Brett saison! All around amazing complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical hops, fruity/spicy/funky yeast, and moderate pale malt flavors; super smooth, crisp, and refreshing to drink for the ABV. An extremely delicious offering.

RasmusOtt (2586) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle thanks to the birthday boy klimaet. Pours hazy orange with an off white head. Aroma of fresh citrus fruits, peach, funky Brett, weak dry hops and pretty fruity and Bretty overall. Taste of funky Brett, sweet esters, citrus and weak bread crust. A good Saison!
