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.

Saison Brett pours a cloudy honey amber with a fluffy white head on top. The foam dissolves slowly to a thick sheet on the surface. A good amount of netted lace clings to the glass. Some particles are floating in the beer. I guess I should have left a little in the bottle.

The aroma has notes lemon rind, a touch of pepper and a light fruit tartness.

Each sip of this medium bodied beer is very soft, a bit creamy with light effervescent carbonation. The flavor begins tart with notes of lemon and green apple. In the middle the brett appears with a light fruit (apple, pear) flavor. It finishes dry with a touch of pepper. Once gone the tartness and lemon lingers on the palate.

This is a very tasty, easy drinking beer with a lovely velvety body. The tartness is well balanced with all the other flavors.
