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.

4.1/5  rDev -4.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A: huge amount of head with large bubble carbonation that is slow to dissipate. The color is pale yellow and quite cloudy.

S: definite fruitiness, peach, kiwi, little lemon to me. There is also a funky wet hay scent in there. There are also herbal scents in there, but I do not know my specific herbs that well.

T/M: grass a citrus taste, pretty well balanced and light, with a large amount of carbonation that is a bit biting to my tongue. I do get the farm feel (dirt and hay) and what I call earthiness of a Saison, and as the beer comes to temp, there is a little more lemon taste in the back. The smell intrigued me a lot, but the scents don't translate into the taste, for me.

O: enjoyable beer that I think hits the style pretty well in my estimation. It has been a while since I had a Brett, and was hoping to get a bit more "funkiness" out of the beer, right or wrong, but it was a more standard Saison.
