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

Thanks, Aaron! Served in a cervoise. Huge head and lacing. Strong saison nose followed by light acidic twang and wheat in the flavor. Very dry with light oak.

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!

Cloudy yellow. Smells tart and funky. Taste is similar to smell, funky and slightly tart. Leaves a sweet lingering after taste. Nice mellow sour saison taste. Overall excellent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lukaduke (1992) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Pours a medium golden color with a couple finger of fizzy white foam. Lots of dusty oak, vinous fruit and complexities of cedar, lime and citrus zest on the nose. Palate is a bit more murky than the nose leads you on to expect but still contains great flavors of grapefruit pith, complex rustic malts, cobwebs, bitter grass, rounded honey sweetness balances out the acidity level in the finish.

Scopey (6136) - 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 labeled "Ferme de la Ville Provision" thanks to nate321, thanks a lot Nate! Pours a nice golden with a lot of bubbles that provide an eternal white head that leave some lacing. Nose is of flowers, fruits and nice brett aromatics. Taste is fruity and really lightly tart and offers some nice fruity flavors along with some fresh cereals. Finish is dry and herbal. Carbonation was a bit intense for my liking, body light. This is a really good saison, yo. A nice surprise!

Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 16, 2013
Sampled from a corked 0.75l bottle @ Top Hops (BA) Bottle Share. A honey colored cloudy little thing this with a medium sized off-white head. Some lacing down the glass. It has a really fresh and nice aroma that mainly contains of brett, grass and a spring aroma found when the first grass is being cut for the season. Quite lovely. It has a lively carbonation level and a oily mouthfeel. In the taste I get some traces of yeast, floral flowers and let there be no doubt, it there is lots of brett here. Really refreshing and really good! 15.06.2013
