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.

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.

dionysus (1448) - Arizona, USA - AUG 16, 2011
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.

LilBeerDoctor (3453) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2011
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.

italarican (1481) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - AUG 6, 2011
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!

coldbrewky (1423) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUL 26, 2011
Bomber scrounged up at Half-time. Consumed in honor of our kitten Monsterís first kill of a field mouse in the house. Pours a evenly translucent honey must orange. Thin white head dissipating. Nose of light banana and stronger clove. Body is medium and has no single decipherable malt. Overall mouthfeel is quick. Spices/ hop waft slowly and are both separate and blended. 7% is hardly noticable. Slept well.

beersearcher (2334) - Glendale, California, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Pours a bright and somewhat hazy yellow. aroma is a little spicey with some Belgian notes peeking through. Taste is pretty restrained. Getting some slight spice followed by a touch of vanilla. A touch of floral hops in there as well.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a somewhat clear orange color with a medium white head. The aroma is rich fruity hops, some oranges, grains, light funk. The flavor is very nice; this comes in like a hoppy golden ale and leaves like a saison- sweet oranges and citrus/fruity hops, dry, some light candied fruit, some Belgian Ale sweetness, light funk in the finish. A great palate. Iím really digging this brewery.

uber-saison. i love saisons. my love for craft beer started with the high point-flavor bomb fever that continues today, subtlety is not a priority. and that pursuit will continue into the stratosphere...because itís good beer. craft beer was in need of some delicacy. thankfully, saisons stepped in and provided a balance in both the tradition of the style and the more subdued elements within. SO it took me awhile to shift my palate to the nuanced and mysterious saisons...hereís the point--field mouseís farewell brings all of the earthy, fruity, ethereal spiciness into the bold forefront and i love it. ever witnessed the sun setting across a field of grain?
