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 that’s what you’re after.

Bottle. Dark yellow with a big fluffy white head. Sweet malty spicy aroma with a strong fruity and sour nose. Tastes of grain caramel malt vanilla and fruit with a nice lightly tart finish.

Tiny pour from a bottle at a tasting. Consumed on 9-23-17. Pours a hazy brass to bronze with a small amount of beige head. Fresh, Bretty aroma. Smells good. Sweet and Bretty taste. Sweeter than I prefer for a saison but enjoyable. Smooth and frothy in the palate. Medium body. 8.3.7.3.14=>3.5

Very good saison. Traditional farmhouse with some punch. Not so tangy but the brett come thru strong. Dry with a sweet palate. Medium body and mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Spab (4003) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2017
750 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a murky golden peach colour with large, lasting white head. Aroma is bright stone fruit, spice, herbs, earthiness and some yeasty funk. Flavour has tart lemon, peach, crabapple, pepper, Brett funk, herbs and earthiness. Fine, lively carbonation. Quite nice.

jeremytoni (3082) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2017
From a bottle poured an amber color with way too much head. Funky malty flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

cattaneopapa (417) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 27, 2017
Bottle from LCBO. Pours an opaque golden colour with two fingers of white head that reduces into a lasting film. Aromas of apples, citrus, green grapes, and a hint of banana. Complex taste matches the aroma with notes of earthy hops and a pronounced banana note on the finish. Lively carbonation. Excellent farmhouse ale. The best farmhouse ale I had so far.

robinvboyer (4741) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2017
750ml corked and caged from the lcbo. Opaque orange pour, with a large white head. Loads of brett in the aroma. Very fruity, oranges and stone fruit, light yeast, soft herbs and some tropical notes. Good mouth feel, soft carb. Finish is medium bitter, subtly sweet, bretty finish, more stone fruit, soft spice and cereals.

alteregoo (1683) - Kalisz, POLAND - JUL 14, 2017
Solidny wystrzał korka, aczkolwiek bez gushingu. Piana bardzo obfita, średnio oczkowa, całkiem trwała. Barwa słomkowa, lekko opalizująca. Aromat intensywny i przyjemny - są wyraźne nuty funky w typie siana, łąki, słomy, do tego białe owoce, nafta i zioła. W smaku podobnie, półwytrawne, lekko cierpkie, szorstkie, brettowe, chmielowe, ale z delikatnie waniliowo kwiatowym finiszem. Super. Goryczka średnia, przyprawowa, pikantna (skojarzenia z białym pieprzem). Wysycenie średnie do wysokiego, bardzo rześkie, lekkie, wręcz zwiewne, zero alkoholu.
Bardzo fajnie zagrały tu dzikie drożdże w połączeniu z chmieleniem na zimno. Świetny balans poszczególnych składowych, mega pijalność! Dodatkowo trudno uwierzyć, że to aż 8,5% ABV - pije się jak jakieś lekkie Farmhouse Ale.

geolgau (417) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - JUL 10, 2017
Pours almost clear golden, big frothy white head. A somehow weird, mineral salty aroma, intense bretts and bitter herbs. Taste is bitter and herbal, but intense. Yeasty, earthy, spicy, crispy. Post taste is bitter and full of fresh hay. Great!
