Farmhouse Ales were brewed for the diligent farmhands who drew the short straw and had to work the arduous harvest. Our brewmaster’s expression blends the spiciness of a Farmhouse Ale with the tartness of a Flanders Red for a remarkably refreshing finish. Malts: Caramel Malt Pale Malt, European Abbey Malt, European Acidulated Malt, Chocolate Malt, Malted White Wheat Hops: Spalt Select, Czech Saaz Our Twist: White Pepper, Coriander, Hibiscus

Formerly know as "Farmhouse Red Ale"

Expressionist collection farmhouse red saison/Flanders style ale six pack from Kroger. This should have been a good beer - but it is a disaster. No aroma. No head. Very strong onion taste. Bleech.

Clear red color. There was head on my glass but I’m not sure where it went. There is a fair amount of burnt malt character but it isn’t too overbearing. Hay, wheat, peppercorns, faint tart at the end. Overall, interesting brew from BM, but it’s too pedestrian to stand out.

fiercepanda (513) - Missouri, USA - JUL 15, 2014
A clear copper beer with almost no head. The aroma is earthy funk and grain. The flavor is nutty, a little bitter, and a little tart.

Bottle. Smells like cereal malt, light berry, light sour notes, faint funk, and faint floral notes. Flavor is sour and tart fruit esters, dry malts, and faint hop bitterness. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

BeerFunGuy (615) - California, USA - JUL 8, 2014
This amber colored beer has a typical caramel aroma of a red. It has a slightly spicy aroma and flavor. The flavor also has a tart cherry essence which goes really well with the spiciness of the saison. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Pours clear reddish brown with very little head. Taste is grape tartness with a little sweetness. Something different I guess.

Sammer (1028) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Bottle. Taste is malt, wheat, strawberry, pine and hay. A bit fruity but easy drinking. Not bad.
