If Strange actually brewed a good beer I will have to go and try it. To bad they will probably serve it in shaker pint glasses  >:(

It's a touch sweet but overall an excellent saison. It's a beer I see overlooked at a lot of places.

...And so easy to drink for such a big beer...

Too true.

I enjoy it on tap at my local (if they haven't run out), often thankful for the short walk home.

Saison Brett is also great - I love a touch of brett in my simple saisons!

this was in the last stack of samples from my distributor contact.  decided to move it up in the rotation and h ad it by the fire pit last night. i am not normally a fan of the belgian-ish type beers but this was good.  i was impressed at how extensive and creamy the foam is.  i thought it had a little sticky finish but okay.  not as sour to me as i expected (and happy about).  i certainly would not shy away from getting this one in a restaurant some time.

I really enjoy Tank #7.  Selfishly, though, as it tastes very much like my saison.  I thought I'd missed the mark, but Tank #7 convinced me otherwise.

I also really enjoy Boulevard's quad.  I can't remember what it's called but it's quite good.

Saison-Brett is hands down my favorite beer. I hoard it. Once the 2013 comes out, I'll have a four year vertical tasting.  ;D

Tank 7 is just a all around great beer. I'm lucky to live in KC where it's on tap and nearly every bar in town. Well, every bar I go to. :)

+1 Could be a bit drier, but I did enjoy it.  At 8.5%ABV it is truly dangerous.
