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.

superspak (6098) - Waterford, 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.

Claves77 (260) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2016 Super fizzy with too much foam. Airy sour smell. Bit well balanced, too much upfront.

Bif (2362) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - OCT 1, 2016
On tap. Pours a hazy golden color with white head and some lacing. Aroma of fruit, quite floral and hint of yeast. Taste of fruit, bit of malt sweetness, with trace of spice and grain. Nice bitterness with a slightly tart finish. Medium body, smooth and well crafted with not hint of the 8.5% ABV. Very enjoyable

drpimento (3798) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2016
Aroma is Citrus yeast in space. Flavor pretty much follows the name of the beer because it’s a saison defined and Modified by Brett.

3.6
katrinaez (2307) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2016
Lemon citrus zesty scent and flavor. Easy spice and flavor on the whole beer. Mouth was full. Cloudy light yellow. Tap
