COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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"

Sweet for a red. Darker our than most. If strawberrys were bitter, this would be the beer. Average for men at best

Spring break bottle at Vinnie’s condo. Nice dark amber color with a tan head. Aroma is light sweet malt. Flavor is lightly sweet and light lemony tartness. Decent but not really a saison.

Bottle - Pours a clear amber with re highlight and creamy head. Aromas of straw and biscuit. Taste has some malt flavor with some sweetness. This neither a saison nor a Flanders Red. Drinkable.

Bottle pour transparent copper/amber with quickly diminishing head. Nose caramel malt with a little rotten funk, but also some underlying chemical acidity. Taste better than it smells but not that much. Early malts lead to mid palate light bitterness. A hint of cardboard in the early finish.

jake65 (2810) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Bottle: Clear copper color with about two fingers of creamy sand colored head. Lots of bubbles. Smells mostly of malts, tastes mostly of malts. A little bit of spice in the backend, but it’s sooooo muddled… no farmhouse, no red, no barnyard. There is an odd sweetness amongst the spice. Misses all the marks.

berkshirejohn (4916) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2015
12oz bottle from Wegmans, Buffalo, NY. A clear reddish amber pour with a thin white head and light carbonation, so nothing farmhouse about the look of it; faintly floral aroma - so nothing farmhouse/farmyard about the smell; sweet hibiscus taste - so not really farmhouse either; with a kick of alcohol to finish - again not what I’d expect in a farmhouse brew - the idea being to drink copious amounts to quench one’s thirst after a hard day in the fields. This is more fitting for somebody who want’s to appear to be drinking craft beer, but doesn’t really like the stuff. I’n not a fan - I like my beer to taste like a beer.

The label calls this a blend of saison and Flanders red - tastes like neither, ot would I guess from the flavor that this was the intent - nose is very faint - some light hibiscus, mild bready malt sweetness, a faint huskiness - flavor is very bland - some toasty malt flavors and a moderate tartness throughout - the hibiscus presents a bit, and there is a light peppery character in the finish - the adjuncts try to compensate for the complete lack yeast character - boring.

I would not combine Flanders ale and saison in the same description. It tastes more like Flanders ale .. but just a touch. The rest is the same boring blue moon coors base.

jhamp9 (1209) - Corinth, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Clear copper pour with an off white head. Not much lacing. Aroma is floral, coriander, and bread. Taste follows the nose but is a bit perfumy. Light tartness. Light body. Not awful.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Tasted on 1/6/15 from a capped 12oz bottle from a mixed pack, thanks to Kyle for giving me a bottle. Pours clear bright red with a thick off-white head that leaves a thick collar and thin lacing. The nose is caramel malt, a touch of some earthy spice, and some spicy, floral hibiscus. The flavor is the same with a touch of cereal, caramel malt, the same earthy yeast profile, and some dry, red floral and lightly spicy hibiscus. The body is medium with lively, very filling carbonation, and a medium cereal and lightly spicy floral finish.
