COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fresh Hop Beer 2011 - We spent the hot summer day hand selecting 9 varieties of organic hops growing at our friends Eric and Jennifer Miller Larch Creek Farms in Dufur, Oregon. We drove them straight to the brewery and loaded up our conditioning tank with Seizoen and all the fresh hops we could stuff in.

750ml bottle from John’s Marketplace. Pours a hazy, yellow-amber color with a nice white head. A bit of a gusher. Aroma is fruity, some citrus hops, grapefruit. Medium on the palate with lively carbonation. Flavor is a little funky, Brett, yeast, hints of banana, clove, some bitter citrus hops, bitter orange peel maybe, with a light, bitter finish. Very tasty.

Cunningham (5247) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 3, 2015
Unclear pale golden color with a fine white head. Ok lacing down the glass. Citric, yeast and mild acidic aroma. Nice body with a fine carbonation. Pleasant balanced sweetness and acidity. Moderate bitterness. Tasty little devil this one. Citric, yeast, fruity and mild spiced. One more please.

This poured a hazy yellow color with a white head. Aroma of Brett, lemon, light fruity hops and wheaty grain. Flavor similar, wish I didn’t have this right after an awesome ipa, then I could detect it more hops, really clean bretty saison though.

douglas88 (6811) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2014
750 ml bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a bright yellow color with a large white head. A big fruity lemon and dusty nose. Vibrant lemons, citrus, yeast, the core Saison is dominant, but fresh fruity hops as well. Quite fluffy and mellow palate. Solid.

Sarlacc83 (1165) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle.A: Cloudy lemon - yellow with a foamy white head that dies in a fuzz. Lacing.N: Huge pineapple and mango upfront. Earthy, biscuit, toast, lemon, and peppercorn. Some orange and soap. Pear and green apple.T: Yeasty, bready, and funky. M: Medium body with a spritzy carbonation. Alcohol is hidden. O: Fresh hops show up in the nose without overpowering the base seizon. I do wish there was a bit more sweetness as I remember from the past, but it?s not an overlarge complaint.

toxichop (427) - South Gate, California, USA - NOV 1, 2014
P: Hazy, murky yellow, with a one finger white head. S: Very grassy, barnyard funk, pineapples, rose pedals, and raw honey. T: Barnyard funk, rose pedals, and some grass. Light pine and perfume strike in the end. M: Light/medium body with high carbonation and some lemon bitterness. O: Wish it had more of a hop punch to it. Enjoyable nonetheless.
