COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Welcome to our Field Mouseís Farewell. Itís 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.

Sampled (fittingly so) at markís farewell party. Batch 2. Pours a hazy straw color with offwhite head. Sweet and lemongrass citrus tones. Pick up the rye and wheat character, but honestly, wasnít that impressed with this one. Just didnít think it was all that great.

By the way, I like the cute little paper strip PT puts over their caps. And another quirky label - that is going to be in a book someday, Iíll wager, a book of craft beer labels from the early 2000s. An odd colored pour - olive and butterscotch tones. Lightly tarry, herbal, and sour notes in the aroma. Interesting flavor comes across like a hoppy saison mixed with a little gruit. The label says there is wheat and rye mixed in with the barley. Some random sourness and playful flavor clashes. Another very interesting release from PT.

Coriander, orange peel aroma: a spicy "zest." Touch of banana. Belgian white-y with a touch of hefeweizen. You can feel the spicy particles. The appearance is glorious, glowing golden yellow -- like a light bulb. Healthy head. Impeccably cloudy. Stunning color. The flavor: wow! The spices are extraordinary. Peppery and with a bitter citrus (grapefruit). Starts off light like a Belgian blonde/wit, finishes like a grapefruit bomb. Eases you into a false sense of security before slapping your lying mouth. The palate is chunky on the inside, slick on the outside. Itís a tale of two beers: a wheaty start and a grapefruity finish. Surprisingly bitter.

Wow. Pretty Things is brewed a few miles from me, so Iíve tried a few and never been really impressed. This is a very different story. Yeast, spice, and some citrus in the nose. Slightly sweet taste with some breadiness and maybe a little mint. Finish is dry and spicy. Tremendous.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a very hazy gold with a moderate linen white head that lasted beyond mid-glass and left partial lace. Pleasant aroma of grain, orange, lemon along with a few floral notes. The flavor is more malt than grain with a touch of spice to it, candi sugar, and lemon. The sweetness is not heavy or cloying in any way and is not excessive and acts to brighten the other flavor components. This is my first beer from this brewer and I will be back for more.

Bottle pours hazy orange-gold with a white head. Aroma is herbal with notes of pepper, lemongrass, vanilla, a touch of funk and some spicy rye. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of citrus, a bready yeastiness as well as light florals. Overall body is moderate and starts a little sweet but quickly dries out and finishes spicy.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a thin white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast and tons of spices especially clove, and some vegetables. Flavor is still quite spicy and clovey. Also some pepper and fennel. So far I have liked the majority of Pretty Things offerings, but found this one to be lacking. Ho hum. 6/4/6/3/11 [3.0/5]

22 oz bottle for the PP bottle shop. Lightly hazy golden amber pour, with foamy white head. Rough grain, lemon zest, ground pepper, hay, herbal hops, and slightly funkiness. Certainly an interesting beer, dry and rustic.

Bottle at a Max tasting. Pours a hazy pineapple. Aroma is slightly vegetal with notes of lemon and brett. Flavor has an immediate hop sting with notes of lemon and peas. Hop sting remains with a bit of rubber in the finish. The aroma was the best part.

From a 22oz into a bomber. This is the second time Iíve had this beer. Brewed in May 2011, Batch 2 (IIRC). Pours with only about an inch or so of creamy white head. Aroma is part Belgian, part bubblegum and part spice. Mouthfeel is pretty solid and creamy but light at the same time!?!?! Taste is bubblegum, rye, grass, Belgian funk, mint and some other very light flavors. Overall this is an awesome beer. Let it warm up for a while and youíll taste the flavors. Not sure Iíd call it a Saison... then again Iím not sure what Iíd call it. Absolutely grab a bottle if you can!
