COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

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
