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.

2014 Release Poured into a tulip glass.

A- I had heard you should pour this beer slowly and I'm glad I did as, even with a slow pour, the glass was mostly foam. A high pillowy white 4 finger head that sticks around. The beer is a bright yellow, good degree of clarity on the initial pour.

S- Big brett presence, with that earthy funk, nice lemon and grassy notes, getting even some spice and maybe just a touch of banana.

T- Again lots of brett here, big basement cellar funk, maybe a slight taste of band-aid, lots of lemon notes, grassy hops, slight pepper, spice, and banana.

M- Medium, not over carbed feeling despite the appearance.

O- At first I found the brett aspect of this beer to be too much but as it warmed it the flavors really came together.

Very carbonated long lasting head. Nice funky yeast flavor with a touch of Brett sourness at the end. Real nice Saison. I would definitely buy again.
