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

The Anderson Valley Saison is a fine example of a traditional Saison. The aroma had citrus and spicy notes. It is clear and golden with a more spicy flavor than a citrusy taste that went down smooth without any hoppy or bitter finish.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2012 On tap @ Fulton Grand w Erica. Pours medium yellow with big head. Aroma is awesome: nice cutting funk with citrus and yeast. Just potent enough. Palate is surprisingly little citrus with a generous helping of yeast. Great example of the style without relying too much on zest/citrus. Crisp, refreshing, not too astringent.

A saison is a really tricky brew, in my opinion. I thought Anderson Valley did a really good job with this one. The funkiness was definitely there in the nose and the taste. It packed a real punch, but saisons often do. A really refreshing brew totally worth trying!
