‘Merica is a single malt, single hop farmhouse ale. It’s brewed with floor malted pilsner and 3lbs per bbl Nelson Sauvin hops. The beer is conditioned with 2 brett strains and wine yeast. The Nelson hops provide white wine flavors while Brettanomyces add a juicy quality to the beer.

Sampled under less than ideal circumstances B.C."H."; dirty grey-straw beer. Hoppy nose, with exotic fruit, grapes and some cat’s pee; other grains, perfumed soap. Bitterish-wry, again other grains and wild fruit, slightly veggie. Bit of lunaria. Hopimprint less in the flavour than in the nose, that smacks of APA/IPA and Nelson Sauvin, rather than of ’saison’. Bit of grist-slick, light body, carbonation gone. Anything can be called Saison. Doesn’t make it Hainautois for that matter. Many thanks to the Vermeerschbros

Fantastic beer. Has a pleasantness, reminiscent of Saison Dupont, but it’s a bit edgier and funkier. Bright esters of citrus and rind in the finish, along with a peppery bitterness. Slight barnyard funkiness gives it depth. Meadowy aromas in the background. Enjoyed it a lot.

Bottle from Belmont Station, Portland. Pours a fairly cloudy golden orange, decent amount of white head. Aroma barnyard, citrus. Body very lively, lush, finish almost juicy in citrus character. Nice but not outstanding.

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Pineapple and various citrus fruit ride this New World Saison’s fluffy effervescence, leading to leveled resinous bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the cloudy pale blond.
-Minty, herbal allusions are also created by the hop and yeast tandem.
-Bits of hay are found under the salient hops.
-The bottle conditioning job is excellent.

Pours a nice cloudy golden, with light white foamy head. Barnyard funk, hay, citrus, and grass on the nose. All follow onto the palate. A great example of the style.

another top 50 saison and another avg score - may not be my style. aroma was a mix of barnyard and citrus. nice palate. taste was complex - sweetness and citrus up front - many different citrus then drying finish, white grapes?

Bottle from The Beer Mongers in Portland, OR. Big stinky funk, manure, citrus, and a touch of powdered sugar. Very light straw. Light sourish initial, and the the Brett comes on strong, delicate citrus fruit and melon rind, and levels off with a smoothness that surprises. Medium body. Slightly dry. Wonderful stuff.

Bottled. Bretty funk nose. grapefruit, vanilla yogurt, manure. Very cloudy pale yellow, fine thick head. Sweet fruits, grapefruit, funky ass, dusty, yogurt. Nicely tart, creamy, funky, horse blanket, catpiss, citrus. Very nice bretty saison, still very drinkable. rather full in body. nicely stinky.

Lots of horse blanket and tartness on the nose. Riding the line between saison and gueuze. Got some of the yeast so color was turkey gravy with a large pillowy white head. Flavor definitely has the saison pepper with a great funky tartness.
