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.

bomber served in the smokestack series glass

this beer is incredible..from the impressive head retention, to the smooth carbonation, to the light effervesent feel of it, it is top notch 100%...it starts delicious and keeps on getting better and better..even the left over "floaters" in the brew give it an extra boost of flavor...great find

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A) four finger off-white head over a hazy golden body. Well carbonated, but less so than the forceful pop upon opening would suggest

S) juicy melon and brett mingle very nicely, with a hint of spiciness as well

T) mild brett flavor, with nice melon flavors the give way to a mildly spicy and dry finish. Personally I always hope for more pronounced funk, but a very fine balance nonetheless

M) medium bodied with a dry crisp finish

O) A very pleasing, complex saison. This is a refreshing sipper that would be perfect on a warm summer day. This would be a great introduction to brett
