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.

auerbrau (3146) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 8, 2010
22oz Bottle. Orange peel, whole grains, and Saison yeast nose. Pours a translucent gold-orange, with wisp of white at the rim. Flavors are chewy and textured. There’s a glassy, sugary texture that seems to dominate and the yeast seems a bit flabby, unfortunately. Some bit-stale hops push though on the flavor and fight with a wet grain flavor. This one seems a little messy to me and light on the things about a Saison (bubbly, crisp, crackery, with a nice spicy yeast compliment). The hop or spice bitterness that comes quickly stays and muddles the whole thing. I wish I loved this, but Jack D’or is much, much better.

Lubiere (9731) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2010
A hazed amber saison with a thick receeding off white head, creamy and translucent. In aroma, pleasant herbaceous hops with light catnip, coriander, spices. In mouth, a creamy smooth saison with coriander, curacao, silky and well balanced, very old world indeed. Spot on. Bottled in May 2010.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 14, 2010
Pouring at session one of Belgian Beer Fest in Boston. Pours a hazed gold with a thin to medium sized white head. Lemony citrus, musk, coriander and spice on the nose. A touch grainy at the start, with a bit of a noble hop bitterness. Still clean and smooth though. Crisp bitterness on the finish with some musk and wheat notes.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 6, 2010
22oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a very hazy golden with a small creamy beige head that recedes to a small collar and leaves very little lacing. Aroma is a combination of sweet Belgian yeast with some grassy, earthy hops and spiciness, probably from the rye. The taste is very well balanced with an initial sweetness with a mixture of honey, Belgian yeast and light fruits. The earthy notes are subtle and the finish is very smooth with less spiciness and dryness than I was expecting. Little bit of a lemon grass hop bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel is very, very smooth and creamy for a saison, presumably from the rye with a moderate carbonation. This is one of the more drinkable and balanced saisons I’ve had with very little spiciness and a smoother mouthfeel than most. Like many Pretty things brews, it’s unique.

(22 oz bottle) Purchased at Cook Street Liqour Store in Victoria, B.C. Great marshmellow and grassy aroma. Clouded golden body with a white frothy head settling to the edges. Flavour is honey dew, tonic and spiced yeast. A nice alternative to have when Saison Dupont is not around.
