4.64/5 rDev +7.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Poured a cloudy gold with minimal head. Caramel and dates move into flowers and pepper, with some cherry esters and a wiff of funk. Sweet with a mild tartness and some alcohol on the finish. Low hop bitterness and mild Goldings-type hop aroma. More complex and more Belgian than the Tank 7. The complexity imparted by the brett and whatever other bugs they threw in there make it a true saison.
Serving type: on-tap

Wonderful sasion.Light golden yellow in color. BIG head even when poured gently it's amazing. Great aroma. Light and fruity. Wonderful summer beer. Like it more than Tankhouse 7 which is a good beer. Definetly will have to go out by some more to keep stocked away for a later date.

4.41/5 rDev +2.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
750 mL bottled purchased at Connecticut Ave. Wine and Liquors in Dupont Circle NW D.C., unknown brewing/bottling date but 2014 vintage (Batch #/BBD - SB14058-02-2016); drank over 30 minutes
A: 3/3 - pale yellow-to-golden coloration; impressively clear for a beer that is "assertively dry hopped;" pours from the bottle with huge frothy white head that barely settled down during drinking; tight, small white bubbles pouring off the bottom of the glass
S: 11/12 - lots of Amarillo on the nose - grapefruit, tangerine and lemon/lime; some peppery/spicy Belgian yeast and ripe/musty pineapple from Brett; pils malt and wheat with some alcohol notes to boot
T: 16/20 - low hop bitterness but really bright, refreshing citrus flavors immediately hit on first sip and continue to develop on the palate; as the flavor profile expands; the Belgian pils and yeast rear up - peppery, estery and coriander that evolves into a mild barnyard funk profile; mild alcohol flavors clean up to finish exceptionally dry and refreshing
M: 4/5 - very high carbonation; effervesent; light body
O: 8/10 - classic light Spring/Summer saison that is the staple shelf hoppy American saison for me; unfortunately, I don't as much musky funky Brettanomyces character as I would like, which will probably develop over time because Brett was only added at bottling; also with a nice price tag ($13.99/bottle) for the DMV
TOTAL - 43/50
