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.

Pours out a nice clear blonde with some very, very mild haziness to it an enough carbonation to lift an F-18. The head is thick, white and frothy; in fact it might be what you’d expect angels to be floating on in heaven!
Grass, apples, mild tangerine, lemon zest and other earthy aromas come through.
Sharp and bitter, the hops come out as it hits the corners of your mouth. It’s sweet overall and very carbonated. Apple and pear flavors do come through in the background.
This is medium to light bodied.
Overall, this is an excellent beer and represents the style well in my opinion. If you think otherwise, then lend me your taste buds!
