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

Bottle. Colour...nearly clear gold with a faint head. Nose...yeasty and funky, all at once with put fruit notes. Palate...dry, yet semi sweet with sweet spice and honey (especially beeswax) followed by orchard fruits and a slight citrus flavour with yeasty bits and wet earth.

Beautiful beer. Pours nice golden in color with a vigorous head. Lightly tart in aroma with typical farmhouse notes and esters. Taste is mildly sweet approach with a tart but not quite sour finish. Dry and crisp. Really enjoyed this beer and will seek out again

Bottle at the crazy tasting at Craig’s place. Pours a cloudy light orange color with a large white head. A sweet nose of spices, seems like some Brett is in there. The flavor is fruity, some dried apples and berries, woody almost in being very dry, a bit of Pils malt. Quite good. Highly carbonated.

mcberko (7447) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2013
On tap at Saraveza’s Farmhouse and Wild Ale Festival, pours a cloudy opaque bright orange with a small beige head. Aroma of musty earthy notes, some oranges, farmhouse notes and lightly tart light fruits. Flavour brings out tart apricots, oranges and other tropical fruits, oak barrels and some farmhouse notes. Quite complex, accentuated beautifully by the oak barrels. Finishes on dry, tart notes of apricot and oranges. Great stuff.
