Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Crosling on 04-13-2007

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.

Thanks to foofaa aka Dan for sharing this with me, enjoyed chilled from a tulip out of a 750ml corked and caged bottle.

The beer nearly filled the glass with white foam but in minutes settles to a fluffy marshmallow top on the golden hazed liquied with tight bead and sticky lace. The smell is very nice with slight apple and tropical odors with some hop citrus accents and light sweet malt elements which bring out the brett qualities even more. I like the way the feel is highly carbonated if you hold it in your mouth but has a scrubbing effect also with nice tanginess and slight bitterness from the hops with dry, not too heavy on the finish.

This is a decent saision, it has many facets with some brett giving the tropcial fruit and subtle spice alongside some malt which is toasted but lightly sweet with some nice hop bitterness to keep it balanced and somehat spicy as the malt recedes and the carbonation settles you get a light yeast flavor in the dry finish. Overall this was a beer I have been wanting to try, Thanks Dan this was an unexpected treat. I like the drinkability I could have probably drank the whole bottle myself. If you are a fan of saison or brett I recommend this.

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
