BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.50%

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.

The appearance is beautiful, it's impossible to not get a huge white frothy head on this one, which leaves behind plenty of foamy lacing. The color is a pale, hazy yellow-orange. It smells like funky mango and ripe peaches. Very earthy as well. Lots of floral notes, honeysuckle in particular. The taste follows with more tartness in the mango and more peachiness. There is honeysuckle again, but also clover honey and peach blossom honey. It has plenty of carbonation and a creamy, medium body.

From a guy who doesn't like saisons too much, I'm really in love with this. The Brett is there and it really makes this beer shine. A must try beer for anyone. At all. Ever.
