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

mcberko (10034) - 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.

Scopey (9735) - 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.

750mL thanks to brainlair. Pours a clear lighter orange. Fizzy, larger, big bubbled head. Spotty lace. Better appearance on second pour. Still a bit over carbonated. Nose is orange peel, lemon, orange marmalade, sweet orange candy drops, sweet cream butter, mild Brett and cedar. Taste is minerally, spicy, sharp carbonation, more sweet cream butter, fresh biscuit, orange marmalade, small margarine but no diacetyl. Palate is moderately tart and tangy. Thick biscuit and bread. Really nice. Refreshing. No flaws. As it warms, more lactic acid comes through in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"Definitely more wild than saison. Saision might be what this started as, but it’s got all kinds of cantillon cheesy funky sourness going on. Light in body, but not aroma or flavor. First foray into Block 15...hope it won’t be the last.

douglas88 (7421) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 14, 2013
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.

750, corked and baled. Thanks, Melissa! Pours a hazy pale gold with a towering, sudsy, brilliant white head and tons of surging nucleation columns. A picture-perfect saison. Loose strings of eggy lace on the sides of the glass. Bright grassy, floral, lemony nose; appealing and decently complex. Could be a tiny bit crisper. Rich fizzy farmhouse body, nice presence. Grass, floral, hay, and lemon notes on the mid-palate. Mild tangy finish. Nice saison.

TheAlum (6428) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2012
750 ml bottle from MVW and shared with friends. Pours a rich hazy golden hue, darker with some orange flashes, darkness and rich haze. A frothy brighter white head sits atop, laces ok overall. Sticks around as a thorough film. Aromas are rich brett, tart lemon, and zest. Touches of sourness, cobwebs, and barnyard. Straw, pale malts, bread, dough. Gentle yeast, wet oak, touches of vanillin. Some grass. Rich powerful sour wild aroma is a pleasant surprise. Touches of fruits, gentle sweetness. Initial is fuller on the palate, yet lighter end of medium bodied offering tart lemons, gentle spice, and some dry grass. Zesty lemony life, gentle fruit, dryness and light quaffable body, prickly body that is silky over the palate. Middle preaches a touch of sweetness, tartness and dryness into the finish, lots of lemon, gentle apple and pear, touches of oak linger on, with bretty funk, dryness. Really well done beer here.
