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

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

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

I was very impressed with this beer. I need another bottle to refine my review. I am so far very impressed but a little cautious. Yes 4.5 was cautious.

An excellent look and head set on top of this classic saison look.

Wild aromatic aromas emit from the top of the glass. Wondrous strong almost perfume strength bright smells. I taste the classic peel in this beer and a number of incredibly lovely flavors merge for an American accomplishment in masterful brewing. Coriander galore? Almost a spiritual elixir.

As compared to Hennepin, the saison of all - time, Brett is a very different animal. Brett hits you with a strong coriander and huge clove flavors while Hennepin is more sweet and orangy with light spices some good malt a little hop. Brett has a nice balance of hops so it makes for a hot day's thirst quencher.

Nice texture to this beer. A bit fizzy for me.. but very drinkable. Brett is a special beer ... a must try.

This beer drinks well to ambient sounds of the group Oregon "Out of the Woods" or Deuter's Reiki: Hands Of Light .

If you have had the Tank 7 and like Brett, grab this! This beer seems like it could use a few years on it. Great taste, but needs aging to make it even better. Great smell, ditto. Very happy with what I paid for this. Have four in the cellar for a few years. Get it if you can.
