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.

I had this beer several years ago when I really could not get myself to like a saison. Now that I am more accepting of the style, I am giving it another shot.

Appearance - Poured into a glass, the saison was a golden yellow color and produced an aggressive white head. I might go so far as to propose that this beer was happy to see me.

Smell - The aroma had the funk of a saison but something more. It is evident that this beer is hopped.

Taste - At the front, you get gritty lemon rind that puts the side of the tongue on high alert. The hops, which are masked to a degree, assault the central portion of the tongue. The hops make this an elite saison, yet they do not overwhelm the delicate balance of funk. A dry citrus aftertaste comes as the finish.

Mouthfeel - A good saison should have enough sediment to look like a snowglobe. My glass looks like a scene from "It's a Wonderful Life." The head was overly foamy, making the saison hard to pour. However, I would not take points off for this.

Overall - One of my favorite saisons.
