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.

Served in a tulip glass at Local Option.

I didn't expect to get this beer during this visit, but I'm not one to argue. It pours a partly-cloudy golden-brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises orange zest, cracked wheat, coriander, light black pepper, mild Brett, and a vague sense of banana peel in the background. The taste brings in more of the same, the Brett mixing with the wheat, citrus, and spices to form a very pleasant sweetness with a swirl of spices. A pall of Belgian-style yeast hangs in the air, intermingling cooperatively at times with everything else. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation, a smooth feel, and a drying finish. Overall, a damn fine saison, one that uses the Brett to an immense benefit, rather than overdoing it and turning things into a damn Brett-bomb. This is some tasty-ass shit right here.

Poured into a snifter. Helluva pop on the cork.

A: Opaque golden with a white half finger head that stays. Frothy lacing.

S: Citrus, featuring oranges, apricot, lemon and pineapple.

T: Tart, tangy, dry. Follows nose with pepper in the mix. Belgian yeast brings that fermentation into the fold. Smooth, lusty. Brett moves in for a lovely mix. Alcohol is well hidden.

M: Medium with frothy carbonation.

O: Everything a saison should be with excellent brett undertones. Recommended.
