Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Crosling on 04-13-2007

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.

Poured in tulip glasses. So much head. Funky nose. Great yeast/wheat taste.

Got to try this on draft at a local watering hole. I am not yet a big fan of Belgian style, but based on ratings I wanted to give this a shot. I have to admit, I was apprehensive given some of the descriptions of it tasking like "funk" or "Band-Aid", but I enjoyed this more than expected. Pour was clean and clear with ample head; scent was ripe with that Belgian spice. Taste was malty and sweet up front, and I caught the Brett earthiness on the finish but by no means was it distressing. This was my first taste of a Brett beer, and I'll be trying more when possible. Coming from a non-saison drinker, this is a good brew.

I have had this bottled and on tap and it is better bottled. The cork releases with a pop which gets louder as the beer ages releasing herbal and spicy hop aromas mingling with cidery, yeasty fruit aromas with a little barnyard funk that gets more pronounced as the beer ages. It pours a lively, hazy straw with a fizzy quickly dissipating, fluffy head. In older versions the head is more pillowy and persistent. Bread and biscuit malt flavors support and mellow the tart, citrusy funky, earthy saison yeast flavors. Mid-palate reveals some peach. The palate finishes dry and tart with a moderate hop accent. The Brettanomyces really shows up with a very finely bubbled, soft, moussey texture that becomes more luscious and alluring as the beer ages.
