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.

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.

A 2011 vintage been holding on to this one for some time.

Appearance: pours a hazy orange with a thick 3 finger pale white head.

Smell: horse blanket, citrus, Brett all over this one, some floral notes, sweaty

Taste: bready yeast notes, clove like flavor, a touch of earthy musksy, citrus, horse blanket brett, nicely balanced by the alcohol, spicy yeasty finish

Mouthfeel: Dry, a nice brett flavor on the tongue, medium bodied.

Overall: a very solid brew that any one could enjoy. Keep them coming.

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Pours a hazy straw colored body with a fluffy white head. Lots of clingy fairly tight bubbles.

Smells quite a bit of lemony, tropical fruit, wet hay and a touch of funk.
Some sweetness and yeast esters.

Tastes like a dry, lemony, funky, tropical fruity Belgian saison. A bit of typical metallic notes on the finish, not exactly a flaw but you get this in quite a few belgians styled beers.

Medium dry, highly carbonated and sprity feeling.

Overall this is a great beer. I feel this is made in the old part of the factory. The massive large factory section may have made the non-bretted saison and my take on that beer was that it is quite different in taste and overall flavors. This bretted version is very good. I recommend this to anyone into saisons in general.
$11 750ml
