COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our organic farmhouse ale is brewed in small batches on a traditional farm brewery as it has historically been made for hundreds of years. This unfiltered bottle of seizoen, with its beeswax seal, is naturally refermented and carbonated with select yeast strains, producing complex fruity and spicy flavors balanced with hops and a soft malt character.

Holy cow this is beer heaven. Yeah I am overeacting but this is damn fine beer. German roots here. Super cloudy! which I love. Thick and delicious. Hoppy and tart slightly sharp. Very rustic beer. Ancient even. Sour sharp bitter hefe. Dusty gold color. Over the top RAW. They could take this in so many directions.

Very good. Aroma is full, fruits, plums, anise and spices, oranges. Looks slightly cloudy but not unfiltered particulates floating, clean cloudy orange gold color. Bubbly white med head, with nice legs. Taste is spicy, figs, orange/lemon plum and farmhouse barnyard earthiness. Alcohol esters, warming, in throat. Very well made and fits the style and less on the sour side.

this was an older bottle from 2011 from 16 tons bottle shop in eugene, or. stored this one for awhile. got this to near freezing to curb the imminent gushing (i’ve learned!). popped and thought i was in the clear for a few seconds...slow off-white rise came out. it didn’t go into full gush and i let it warm up in the counter for a good 15 mins. poured into a couple tulips and enjoyed the earthy, funk with some mushroom and lamb ragout, perfect pairing. the bright acidity came through and the i really enjoyed the earthiness.

Huge thanks to boralyl for getting me a bottle of this. Served side-by-side with the Bretta version. Bottle into a goblet. Warning: this was a bit of a gusher. Pours a pale orange-light copper color with a very large, rocky white head. Really nice retention and quite a bit of lacing. The nose carries really nice notes of spice and pear with some backing stone fruit. It’s surprisingly similar to the Bretta version. I’m extremely impressed how much complexity there is coming out of a clean saison. This is one of the best American versions of the style that I’ve had. A bit of malt character in the background. Dry after light-medium body. Crisp carbonation. Really not much to complain about here.

A - Pours a cloudy golden orange with a bit finger of frothy white head. The head fades down very slowly leaving behind some nice lacing. S - Aroma is a mix of bready malt, pear and other light fruits, Belgian yeast, lemon zest, citrus hop, coriander, pepper, and funk. T - Starts off with a mix of bready malts with some tart pear and lemon zest, with a bit of citrus hop and coriander. Through the middle, some stronger Belgian yeast flavors come through with some barnyard funk and more fruity esters. The finish is a mix of Belgian yeast, fruity esters, lemon zest, coriander, pepper, bready malts, and funk. M - Medium bodied with moderate-plus carbonation. Feels smooth with a dry and funky finish. V - Very drinkable. Nicely balanced with some good funk and yeast flavors coming through.

I read the reviews and I was also warned... And sure enough it was all true.. Total gusher... Definitely some fermentation going on in these bottles, gzzzzz... Though it was all worth it. Once the head settled down and the beer came to temperature... it was perfect! Great, refreshing carbonation, a dry, medium-light mouthfeel, some bitterness and complex flavors of yeast, spice, citrus and florals. The finish is dry and long, echoing flavors of yeast, layers of tropical fruit, spice and citrus. One of the best American great saison's. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...
