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.

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. I’m 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 it’s 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...here’s the point--field mouse’s 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?

from GRBNY. I was excited to try this, as I thought the idea of all 4 major grians in a beer was interesting. The aroma is cereal grains, barnyard, fruit. A lot going on. The appearance is a hazy yellow, white head. The flavor is cereal grains, spicy, fruity. Medium in body. The finish is sour, like a wheat grain sour, and oine. Decent.

Bottle, batch 2 (marked as May 2011). Pours with a hazy orange hued body with a medium to large, foamy white head. Strongly ester aroma with pear and vanilla, tangerine and pluots. Light phenols (pepper, styrofoam), bready, delicate malt character. Lightly spicy. Crisp. Some grassy hop qualities. Flavors are rustic, firmly bitter, spicy, bready, pastries, fruity esters: plums (tart/underripe), nectarine. A bit of a peppery phenol. Light stonefruit and grassy hops. Lively bubbles, and somewhat dry (but not immensely so for a saision). Neutral balance. Very drinkable. I’d drink this any day over Jack D’or.

marcus (7463) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Bottle from Star Grocery, Berkeley. Pours cloudy golden wit a thick off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a really nice fruity flavor that is quite malty for a saison with a bitter finish. The unusual yeast combination makes this an interesting brew, rather than just another saison.

Another nice Saison from these guys. It pours cloudy yellow/orange with a white head. The aroma is spicy with some clove, vanilla, coriander, wheat, grains, and orange. The flavor is dry and spicy with clove, coriander, wheat, orange, apricot, and vanilla. Just a hint of alcohol and bitter hoppiness in the finish. A good one worth seeking out.

Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Light flowery aroma, with pale malts and earthy notes. The flavor is flowery and light spicy, with some earthy and mineraly notes, and pale malts. Not bad.
