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.

A - Stunning. Maybe perfect for a saison. Thick, pillowy foam overflows over the glass before settling into a tower of melted marshmallow. Outstanding retention and lace. Warm orange body with a soft haze and lazy constellation of redwood sediment.

S - Soft orange creamsicle, grapefruit pith, lemon zest, thyme, dandelion, leather, sweet wood, and a touch of vanilla. Smells like spring.

T - Orange zest, honey, plant stems, green wood, grass, white bread, light black pepper, seltzer. Soft, light, and well balanced.

M - Spot on. Brisk, refreshing, soft, smooth, medium frame.

O - Outstanding. This beer is everything that a saison should be.

A - Gold, cloudy, voluminous white head has good retention and lace.

S/T - Brett heavy, for sure. Earthy funk, chamomile, lavender, lilac, underlying lemon candy sweetness.

M - Light body, crisp, clean finish, slightly tart.

O - Delicious, brett is pretty strong, maybe it could be balanced a little more with a touch more bitterness.
