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.

750ml 2013

A - Large just off-white head with a straw tinge. Beer is a hazy golden yellow.

S - Fruity, citrus, white grapefruit, a bit earthy.

T - Hops and bitterness right off the bat. Lemon and grapefruit in the middle with some pepper and spices. The bretts kick in at the end with a bit of earthy flavor.

M - Crisp. Medium-Medium/High carbonation. Alcohol is completely masked.

O - Excellent beer overall. I've been on a saison crusade recently and this might be my favorite. It's right up there with Goose Island's Sofie.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours a hazy, straw yellow color with a huge head.

S - Smell is a bit funky, with a tart, citrusy, earthy aroma and just a hint of sourness.

T - On the front of the tongue I get some tartness. Middle of the mouth is bready/malty, earthy, and a little funky. It has a dry, hoppy finish.

M - Medium body, high carbonation, dry finish. A little alcohol burn in the back of the throat, but it doesn't detract from the beer at all.

O - Overall, this is an awesome beer. Very refreshing and nicely balanced. I wish I had a bottle to age and compare.

An amazing beer!
I poured this into a teku glass. The beer was a gold color with a huge fluffy white head. There was a good deal of lace.

Nice citrus aroma. Some perfume. A lot of barnyard aroma.

Lemon, spice, and funky taste. They combined really well together, and made the taste outstanding.

A crisp, refreshing, thoroughly enjoyable beer. I should have bought more than one.

Aroma of Brett, barnyard, straw, combined with citrus notes. Pours a hazzy bright yellow with a foamy, mostly lasting, white head and minimal lacing. The taste is Saison crisp meets Brett funck. Citrus, funk, grain, and hints of sourness and pepper. Dry, crisp finish. Medium-light body with crisp carbonatin. Overall, this beer is a winner! Crisp and dry meld with funk to produce a very refreshing brew. Will drink again.
