Notes/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.

2008 Batch 1, No 03850/11950
Received as part of a trade with sry23.

Nice golden color with huge (HUGE) frothy head and lots of sticky lacing.

Smell is quite complex. Some sweetness balanced by some light hoppiness. There is a slight floral aroma and some really nice grassiness and herbal qualities. The brett is very noticeable, yet subtle. There is some mustiness, but it is extremely pleasant.

Taste again is very complex. A wealth of flavors and tough to pick them out. Some coriander, lots of grass and earth, nice spiciness A fair amount of hops on the finish with a longlasting earthy quality lingering for seconds afterwards.

Beer goes down easily. It is supremely enjoyable, complex. Some nice funk, but not overdone.

I am a huge fan of saisons, and this one might be the best I have had. Love this beers. Grab as much as you can..

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.

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.
