Availability: Rotating

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.

4.2/5  rDev -2.3%

750ml bottle into a tall tulip

A: Pours a very clear golden color with three fingers if fluffy white head. Retention and lacing are both top notch.

S: Quite fruity and funky. I get strong grapefruit and lemon zest along with lots of funky Brettanomyces. A bit of wheat rounds out the aromas. Once a bit of yeast is poured into the beer, it helps balance the slightly dry smelling beer.

T: The funk really comes out here - musty, barnyard, with a tangy flavor reminiscent of club soda. A nice fruitiness comes through as well - grapefruit and lemon zest. Once some yeast is in the beer, it adds a bit of a chalky flavor that works nicely with the beer.

M: Cery light with very high carbonation.

O: A very nice Saison - dry, funky, and fruity. I could use a bit more character, but this is a great Saison.
