COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The first of our three part Saison series. Saison’s were traditionally brewed on farms in the French speaking region of Belgium for their workers. Ferme de La Ville or “City Farm 15” is brewed with Belgian Pilsner, malted wheat, and locally gathered honey. French Farmhouse yeast brings aromas of spice and earth. The body is light with complex flavors and a dry refreshing finish. 6.75%alc/vol 25 IBU’s

Leighton (10967) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle shared at CBC Clerkenwell in London - big thanks to Aaron. Pours hazy yellow-gold with a creamy white head. The nose has light bretty funk, some subtle rindy citrus, lemon. Light sweet flavor with modest dryness, good brett funk, more dry citrus rind bitterness. Medium bodied with fine, massaging carbonation. Pretty clean to finish, lightly drying, with basement brett character and dry citrus fruits. Nice.

750, this one is wrong, infected maybe? Tastes of pledge and lemons, not sour or tart just chemically in a wrong way. Kinda bad.

Scopey (6812) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle, thanks to Aaron. It pours hazy golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is soft, earthy, brett, underlying sweetness, barnyard, sherbet, light toast and spice. The taste is sherbet, hay, toast, crisp bitterness, lemon, grapefruit, spice and subtle tartness with a dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Well-rounded and very drinkable stuff. Tasty.

Bottle cheers to Aaron. Pours cloudy yellow with a medium, fluffy white head leaving great lacing. Nose is chock full of stone fruits - peach, plum, apricot, some moderate hay and grass. Epitomizes summer. Taste is grassy and floral hops with big apricot and mango running through the mid palate. Big tropical features, sherbert and citric zest. Very juicy. Summer, summer, summer. Very good stuff!

Bottle tasting at Craft Clerkenwell.Thanks to Aaron. Hazy gold beer, little pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and airy and a little crisp. Light floralness with a very mild sour tang. Whisper of lemony citrus. Little dried fruits. Finishes light. Pleasant enough!

hopscotch (9152) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with a minimal, fizzy, white head. The bouquet is woody, acidic and lightly funky. Light-bodied and astringent with stinging carbonation. The flavor is slightly tart and lemony, followed by a tangy, raspy, bone-dry finish. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!
