COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Welcome to our Field Mouse’s Farewell. It’s a late spring seasonal beer: French, rustic, 7%, full of different grains: Rye, Oats, Wheat and Barley. Like what a mouse would eat. The hops are Strisselspalt from Alsace, and Bramling Cross from England, and we combined Belgian and English yeast strains. Oldy woldy worldy.

bomber - nose is caramel, grain, grass and herbal. Sip adds rye and bread. reminds me of a Bière de garde more than anything and maybe a hoppy pilsner/marzen. Sweeter than I’m used to for the style. Has me sticking my tongue out like a lizard in a LSD-themed movie.

jredmond (6938) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Sampled at The Festival 2015 in St. Pete with Vinny. Pours an amber body with large white head. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of yeast, spice, grains, bread and sugar.

vyvvy (5134) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 7, 2015
Pours copper orange with an off white head. The aroma caramel, French saison yeast, phenolic spice and light banana. It has a medium/light body with some roughness with frothy sharp carbonation. The taste is metallic, mineral heavy, mild sweetness, mild American saison and astringency. Finish is very astringent. Not really for me.

thegreenrooster (3722) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Pour is a hazy red with a large white head. Aroma is a nice mix of some berry fruity and spicy rye. I also get a bit of pepper and maybe a touch of honey. Flavor is again a berry with the rye malt showing up the most. Very heavy mouth feel for a saison. Finish is more like eating a baked pie crust without the pie filling. This beer was all over the place with the flavors which made for a unusual saison. The sum of all those parts worked though because this was still a flavorful beer.

PhillyCraft (4762) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2015
Tried at the Festival. Amber appearance with medium sized off white head. Notes are predominantly plum sugar, bread, and other sweet malting. Didn’t get any hops in this one, mostly boring English stuff.

wlajwl (5056) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Aroma is caramel, liqueur, mild spices and a hint of sweetness. The flavor is caramel/caramel liqueur, Belgian yeast, mild fruit and and a malty/very slightly alcohol finish.

superspak (3968) - Michigan, USA - OCT 11, 2015
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled in 8/2015. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, toasted oats, spicy rye bread, wood, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, toasted oats, spicy rye bread, wood, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Moderate amount of earthy bitterness and yeast/rye spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, pear, apple, light banana, pepper, clove, wheat, toasted oats, spicy rye bread, wood, and herbal/yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness/spiciness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Moderate amount of dryness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp/sticky, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome and unique saison style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/spicy yeast, earthy hops, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

Draft. Unclear deep amber. Sticky off white head. Banana. Bubblegum. Peppery. Dry. Mild earthy bitter. Different than the usual ’American saisons’ I’ve had lately. Solid beer but not quite my thing.
