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.

Bottle. Golden orange with a thin white head. Belgian yeast, orange, spices on the nose. Very spicy, malty and above all Belgian yeast flavour. Coriander. Delicious.

Bottle. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Estery, yeast aroma with spice, and malt. Spice and yeast lingers with earth, malt, and light citrus. Mediumb odied. Light grapefruit and spice lingers with yeast and earth.

Appearance: blood oranges and mandarin. No real head other than a thin white bubbly layer which disappears fast, leaving only a collar. Swirls with a thicker bubbly collar but no head.
Nose: peaches and mandarins freshly peeled with a nice addition of zest with rye seeds providing spice. Dryness of rye husks and bitterness of orange skin in the back leads into straw and green grass blades. Essence of the summer. Lemon zest.
Palate: crisp and sweet than long bitter finish of citrus skins, rye seed husks, straw. Zest tingles atop my tongue. Juiciness of mandarin and blood oranges than a subtle dry zesty finish. Saddle leather and dry brittle bales of hay. Rye weaves in and out, over and under, working with and not against all the other flavors. Damp freshly cut grass – sweet.
Final Thoughts: ingenuity and creativity personify Pretty Things and it shows in their unique flavorful beers. Field Mouse’s Farewell did indeed bring to mind a journey through fields of amber, gold, spice, and season’s change.

Braudog (6247) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Bottle/Batch2/May11 bottling. Orange-golden with a pillowtop of a head. The aroma is fruity and yeasty. Rustic is a good descriptor for this beer -- rich with a grain-laden body, yet emboldened with a tart fruity edge. Nice beer in the farmhouse tradition. (#4350, 10/24/2011)

leaparsons (9674) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 29, 2011
Bottle. Hazy gold with a medium foam. Aromas are honey and floral spices with caramel. Rye with lemon and alcohol. Flavours are bready yeast with sweet honey and flowers. Quite herbal and resinous. Caramel and biscuit with a decent grapefruit bitterness to finish with woody dryness. Pretty decent.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - SEP 11, 2011
Enjoyed it. Pours a hazy gold colour with a nice what frothy cap. The aroma is grapefruit, hops, orange peel, and spice. The flavour is cool, some spicey zing plays with juicy grapefruit and orange zest, touches of gran and yeast, banana, some alcohol sweetness, finishes with more grapefruit. Very enjoyable.

Butters (4038) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 5, 2011
Sampled (fittingly so) at mark’s 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, wasn’t that impressed with this one. Just didn’t 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, I’ll 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.
