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.

2014 Vintage, poured into Boulevard tulip glass

A- pours a crustal clear golden yellow color with a huge foamy and rocky white head that retains long after the pour, taking over five minutes to eventually settle, leaving lots of lace left behind.

S- yeasty barnyard funk aroma with highlights of wet hay, grain & earth. Musty wet basement mixes with some herbal aromas, along with apple skin, lemongrass, and pear. Good mixture of funk & fruit

T- Brett funk up front gives notes of earth, grain, hay & musty cellar. Fruity notes of apple cider, pear and lemon peel, candied belgian sugar sweetness leads to notes of banana and phenols on a dry finish

M- medium-light body with moderate spritzy carbonation leads to a big foamy mouthfeel, eventually leading to a dry and crisp finish, high drinkability

O- plenty of Brett funk, but held back enough to balance out the fruity and earthy notes of the base saison. I was already a fan go Tank 7, and this one was a winner with the addition of dry hopping and Brett yeast
