Our interpretation of the rustic Wallonian Saison style is a harmonious blend of rustic grains, spicy yeast and unique sauvignon blanc tones. Inviting lemon grass and gooseberry meet peppery spice and fresh grain aromas. Spicy Belgian yeast create a complex yet dry and refreshing canvas with splashes of citrus and stone fruit with a bright tropical white wine finish. Hop bitterness is assertive yet harmonious rounding out slightly tart and refreshing.

pours light gold with a white head. Hoppy aroma with some fruits, and flavors is lemony, sweet, with a bitter finish. Tasty, but not great.

Bottled 1/8/16, this 26 oz. Farmhouse Saison has a sweet grass nose with bright / crisp mouthfeel and earthy/grassy with very slight dry wine tones on front pallet. Finishes dry & crisp with a nice bitterness from the hops. Sip & enjoy this one slowly to appreciate its complexity.

Alright, time to take a break from all these fantastic Firestone hoppy beers and turn from the California coast to the Belgian countryside. This change in scenery brings a golden pour with a creamy layer of foam. Spicy, floral, earthy, fruity, and bready smells from the glass. Strikingly complex taste profile: funk, lemon, peach, clove, black pepper, and candy-like malt. The mouthfeel is bright, lively, tart, and quite dry. Apparently, Firestone Walker is just as competent with Belgian-style ale as it is with English-inspired beer.

Now here is where they took a traditional beer, kept the significant parts of it and improved on some others. An amazing combination of old and new. There are the old yeasty, slightly tart, pungent flavors and aromas that are upgraded with the hops that have not degraded in the least. Splendid! Incredibly drinkable. Wish I could get lots more.

Bottle from Tanakaya. Pours a clear gold with a finger of foam that dissipates fairly quickly. The nose is fantastically complex with good saison yeast character alongside pineapple and lemon. As it warms up the NZ hops shine through with tons of weed and stone fruit as the yeast takes a backseat. Spicy peppery yeast on the palate with some light lemon and dankiness. A slight bit of booze is noticeable mid-palate but the peppery finish covers it up. A slow burner for sure.

Bottled 03/05/16. Poured into tulip a yellow-gold, thin dish soapy head. Overtly Belgian yeast aroma, a citrus burst, pepper and light funk. Yeast forward with lemongrass on the palate, white wine tinged, and a lasting peppery finish. Dry and slightly tangy, refreshing and seasonable in feel with the wine note reminding you its 7.5 abv. The citrus is tart, the pepper is almost overdone, but it all comes together well.

04/16/16 - bottling date. This was poured into a tulip. The appearance was a semi-hazy crisp burnt colored yellow. Rimmed fingerís worth of lacing appears after the head dissipates. The smell starts off with Belgian sweet yeasty to some light Belgian sugars. Sweet grass, light citrus, white pepper and some black pepper. Runs together into the aftertaste and gives off a semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionable feel to it. Carbonation runs fairly light. Some yeasty stickiness hits but isnít cloying. Overall, an absolutely wonderful saison, boom! Just glad Firestone Walker is in Vermont. Iíd definitely have again.

Keyaki. Cloves, boozy, bit fruity. Not very exciting. Worst of the tasting set. Seems I didnít quite get these beers.
