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. 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 I’ve 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 you’ll taste the flavors. Not sure I’d call it a Saison... then again I’m not sure what I’d call it. Absolutely grab a bottle if you can!

Bomber scrounged up at Half-time. Consumed in honor of our kitten Monster’s 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.

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.
