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, caged and corked. Golden, lightly hazed and confused (ha), fluffy white head. The aroma definitely screams "Brett!" Lightly fruity, sweet, funky, and deliciously yummy. Wild but tame, a great classic beer. (#6606, 5/15/2017)

2016. Amazing. Poor cloudy dark yellow/light amber. Huge head, but settles fairly quickly. Funk and apricot on the nose. Very complex on the palate. Apricot shows up again with some funk and sour, nice hop. Beautiful balanced finish. Best beer I've had in a while. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PanMarek (419) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2017
2015 edition, consumed 23 April 2017. Slightly cloudy, dark yellow pour with thick, fine foam that fades into a rocky cap. Lots of brett mustiness in the nose with some spice, cracker malt and fruity hop notes. Medium light body with some fizz, slightly slick. Initial sharp barnyard musty taste that quickly gives way to a smooth malt middle and a mildly fruity hop finish. The mineral phenols are muted at first, but as the beer warms they appear and mingle well with the malt. (Is it pilsner malt?) There is a sharpness that is not quite tart or acidic. I think the age of the beer has diminished the hops somewhat, which is fine with me. The 8.5% ABV contributes to the sharpness and leaves a mild burn at the end. A robust, rich saison, certainly in the super category. Much more complex and rewarding than Tank 7. This bottle was a couple months past its best by date. I would be willing to try an even older one.

Lets hope it was just a bad bottle. One of the worst beers I have ever had. Like sucking on rubber bands or band-aids. Dirty, effervescent and strange orange color.

Korcz (3133) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 19, 2017
O, przypadkowo - kolejny tick top50 saisonw :) Żłta barwa, bardzo wysokie, drapiące wysycenie - warto dać mu się odgazować. Piękny, intensywny aromat brettw spod znaku siana i winogron. W smaku sporo nut mineralnych (odczucie potęgowane przez wysokie wysycenie), delikatnie cierpkie i taniczne, delikatnie brettowe i owocowe. Bardzo smaczne.

The first two sips were the worst as I got used to a very unique yeast. Then it became a complex and addictive palate with the ever changing structure you want in a saison. Cloudy and light look with an awesome aroma. In a bottle. Gift from Jarod. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dank. Dry fruit. A hint of spice. Cloudy pale yellow/gold with white sudsy head for days and days. Leaves thick suds on the glass. Tart yet smooth. Thick mouthfeel. Well balanced fruit and funk. A hint of spice. Mildly bitter finish. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2016 750ml corked and caged. Tulip. Clear lite yellow with huge fluffy white head. Very effervescent. A: yeast, brett, grains, mild herbs, flora. Strong with a high tone. T: tons of flora and herbs, some yeast and bare brett. Aroma was good, taste is way too herb garden for me.

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.
