Based on our beloved Tank 7, this astonishing saison is assertively dry-hopped with Amarillo, Calypso and Citra hops, then bottle conditioned with Brettanomyces, a strain of wild yeast that imparts a distinctive earthy quality. Warm cellared for three months, the Brett character is deliciously apparent on release, but it’s just getting started.

Milky gold beer. Thick frothy white head. Soft frothy and semi dry palate. Typically mildly sour saison but balanced perfectly. A little elderflower sweetness offset by hop bitterness in the finish. A little spicy aniseed. A very decent saison.

Bottled, bought in Spokane, WA. Cloudy golden, lively head. Grassy hoppy nose with funky sweaty brett underneath. Medium dry with gentle mouthfeel and mildl sparkling carbonation. The Orvallish sweaty bitterorange funky brett character is strong, but it still retains balance. Finishes with evergrowing bitterness. Lovely!
