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.

Gorgeous lemon color and mostly see-through. Pours an towering head which slowly dissipates to a foam caldera which remains for the rest of the drink. Covers the glass in large, detergent-like patches of lacing.

Bright and super fresh, floral, herbal and leafy aroma. Hints of lemon as well.

Right from the start, hops hit the tongue with an unrelenting assault. Make way for the yeasty goodness, mostly standard Belgian yeast with hints of Brett. Mildly acidic with a lemon juice quality. Finishes bone dry from the hops and acid with an ever-lasting, bitter aftertaste.

Medium bodied. Dry feel. High carbonation.

Big points for originality. Lost points due to lack of balance. I would consider this a Saison/IPA hybrid with slight hints of Brettanomyces. Don't get me wrong, I love a good IPA. I just think they over did it a little bit. The intense bitterness and slightly tart flavors create an overwhelming flavor, in my opinion. Nonetheless, I am enjoying it.
