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.

750ml bottle into a tulip. From notes.

A: Pours a hazy yellow color with tons of carbonation and even some yeast floaties. The eggshell-colored head is tall (three fingers high) and quite foamy in texture. While its texture is inconsistent, the lacing left behind is...well, it's inconsistent. Looks nice, though.

S: The funk here is subtle, and it's backed by some citrusy notes. As it sits in the glass, it develops a nice earthen tone, with some lesser qualities of black pepper and phenols. Some very timid sourness can also be caught. This aroma has some nice complexity, I must say.

T: Bready, spicy yeast hits the palate first. It's funkiness gradually builds on the palate, but never to the point of excess. The finish is nice and citrusy, with some underlying lemon notes. Complex, but in a soft, suggestive way: it never bludgeons the palate in any manner.

M: Indeed, this is a soft yet full brew - a bit too astringent though. Not like it matters, because this is dry, fizzy, and immensely drinkable. I really don't want this to end.

O: I love Tank 7 and I love this. If I have to nitpick (and I always have to, every single time) it's that the complexity is a bit concealed. Luckily, discovering all of its nuances is such an enjoyable experience. I'll definitely have to get more next year!
