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.

Top shelf saison. Yo have to let this one warm up a bit and give the bottle a good swirl before each pour. Given that, prepare for an excellent saison. Poured from a corked and caged 750 ml bottle into a pint glass. Hazy apple cider color with a huge, delicately bubbly white head that settles into a frothy head as the bubbles die down. Minimal lacing.

My initial pour provided a clear golden beer with minimal aroma. After a swirl, the yeast and funk were very apparent to go along with the citrus/lemony aroma and the hazy darker color.

Taste is marvelous. The yeast and funk are persistent but very gentle. They are expertly blended with a lemony/citrus flavor. The alcohol presence is minimal and there are no harsh flavors of any kind.

Mouthfeel is rich with the carbonation just right. No alcohol burn.

This is a fine Saison. There is nothing that blows you away but all the elements are there. You could sip on this one all night.
