Anderson Valley is famous for its fertile farm land, and it is these farms and their farmers that inspired Mowkeef Saison, our summer installment of the Bahl Hornin’ series. Historically, Saisons were brewed on farms in Belgium, and were designed to refresh farm hands after a long day’s work. We believe Mowkeef Saison is a nice innovation on this traditional style, and will refresh farm hands and pub goers alike. Mowkeef, which means “hay reaper” in our native Boontling, is a Saison with a traditional malt foundation, featuring a medley of malted grains including barley, rye, and oats. Unusually hopped with english noble hops, and spiced with ginger, coriander, and star anise, this straw-colored unfiltered ale is a welcome respite from summer heat, and a perfect fit with Anderson Valley’s lineup of balanced, complex, and authentic

Leighton (18695) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2012
Keg at City Swiggers, NYC thanks to Sander. Pours clear, dark gold with a frothy, white cream head. Toasty wheat aroma, lots of spices, grain. Medium sweet flavor, spicy, with light citrus, pumpkin, coriander, faint dry grass. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Faintly dry to finish with toasty malts, light grass, herbs and spices, some toasty sugars. A very enjoyable saison.

mcberko (14659) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2013
On tap at Anderson Valley, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Nose brings out Belgian yeast, dough, and spices - doesn’t smell like an authentic saison at all. Flavour confirms this, with some nice floral notes, Belgian spices, and fruity esters. Light, floral and doughy - again, nothing like an authentic saison. Still, nice refresher.

"Nice bright and complex saison. English hops and rye up front. Just a little on the musty side. Wish all the new stuff from the last two years would show up in bottles - finally got a non traditional AV on tap

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2011
2011-12-03. Very lightly hazy golden yellow body, small white head and lace. 3+ Flavour is a bit odd, grassy hops, fairly bitter, sweet pale malt, odd floral character. Aroma is similar, odd floral, herbal notes. 6+ Smooth average palate. Dry bitter finish lingers. 3+ I didn’t pick up on the spices all that much, I wonder if that means they are mild or just out of reach for me today? Tap at Coles, Buffalo
