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.

olio (6530) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2014
65 cl bottle.
Clear copper color, small head. Sweet fruity aroma, reminds me a bit of sahti, yeast, toffee and mild hop notes too. Sweet taste with caramel malts, some citric fruits and yeast. Soft carbonation, sweet lingering sourish finish. A bit weird for a Saison but quite tasty.

_angst_ (3058) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2014
Bomber bought @ bierkompass.de. Pours hazy deep golden with a frothy offwhite head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and tiny funky with dark bread, cereal, lemon juice, black pepper corns, lemon zest, hay and dry soil. Taste is tiny sweet, bitter, malty, earthy and tiny funky with toasted cereal, sweet dark bread, moist soil, wood, lemon zest, leather, barnyard, lemon juice, oatmeal cookies, hay as black pepper corns. Mouthfeel is slightly dry, slightly tart, tiny soft and medium bodied. Finish is slightly bitter, tiny sour, malty and funky with dark bread, cereal, hay, lemon zest, moist soil, leather, black pepper corns and St Johns wort. Very rustic malty saison that turns out quite tasty...

JStax (3244) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2013
22 ounce bottle thanks to lukaduke. Poured into a brandy snifter. Pours a translucent copper with a big frothy white head of foam. The aroma is more spice forward than anything. I get notes of nutmeg, wheat, oats, cinnamon, and caramel. In the taste I get a spice forward sweetness. Fairly bread, or doughy. Some musky qualities as well. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Decent, but that spicy quality, which I assume is mostly due to the rye used, maybe even some of the oats, it just doesn’t do it for me.

Bule (871) - California, USA - OCT 22, 2013
22oz bottle pours a hazy amber color without much head. Labelled as an amber saison but has some sweetness to taste more like a triple. Taste of marmalade and belgian yeast.

ACD (676) - Dublin, IRELAND - OCT 20, 2013
Tap at Mikkeller SF. Hazy gold - huge white head. Big estery yeastiness on the nose: plenty of earthy euro hops in there, slightly musty. Taste is great saison mustiness, light citrus zest, earthy hops, bready malt. Medium dry finish. Good stuff - taking a leaf out of Dupont's book, not too much new world hop craziness in here, just a solid estery trad saison.

Imaena (1887) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle. This is a really nice saison with lots of grain flavours crossing over.

22oz bottle into snifter, little head, dark brassy gold color. Nose is subtle, orange, lemon, wheat, cereal, spicy. Mouthfeel is smooth, low carbonation.
