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.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2015
22oz bottle, thanks to tmoney99 for sharing. Kind of hazy orange color. Off-white bubble head, some decent bits of lace. Caramel malt up front, some orange citrus, mild spice. A touch of rye in there. More sweet taste, much sweeter than I’d like for a saison. Light to moderate bitter. Kind of zesty. Mild tanginess. A bit musty overall, slight metallic. Doesn’t taste fresh, maybe? But it’s bottled August 2014, not that old. Medium to bigger body. kind of slick. Light carbonation. I wanted to like this one, but I did not. Didn’t finish my sample. Would have hated to have been stuck with the whole bottle.

drsordr (2380) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2015
Bottle shared by Tmoney99 pour hazy dark orange with minimal white head. Nose light spice, some fruit, and light dank some sweet malt. Taste starts with sweet and saison but quickly transition to grainy malt. Minimal spice on the finish. Not as sweet or spicy as most saison.

fiulijn (19387) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle at Au Trappiste, Bern
Hazy golden color, small head. Sweet aroma, some vegetable soup too in it, celery. Good body strength, dry mouthfeel, the malt is not expressive, but it has enough spice character; strong bitterness; it still has traces of vegetables in the final.
Not fully convincing.

Bov (12018) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAR 6, 2015
from Au Trappiste - hazy blond-orange beer with a modest foam left; light funky aroma of oranges; a bit cheesy; full-bodied, subtle yet fair carbonation, quite sourish; light residual swetness; aftertaste of blood oranges and almost metallic (I should have trusted fiulin from the beginning on...)

ogivlado (7254) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 19, 2014
Bottled 650ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Orange/golden coloured, small to medium sized white to off-white head, dusty fruity nose. Sweet malty, fruity (oranges dominates), yeasty and light alcoholic with notes of over ripe fruits. Mild spicy touch in the finish.

malrubius (2616) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle from Table & Vine. Hazy caramel color with ring and lace. Mild grainy grassy spicy aroma with only ints of citrus and yeast. Sweet caramel honey with some mildly tangy peach fruitiness and medium herbal bitterness with some lingering caramel and spice. Medium body. Saison is a wide-ranging category and this is an example of an interpretation that does nothing for me. Meh.

WillRunForBeer (2343) - Massachusetts, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Draft at When Pigs Fly. Pours copper with an off white head. Aroma is fresh baked bread, fruity esters. Flavor follows nose, with some pepper and clove from the yeast and a little grassy hop bitter in the finish. Very nice balance.
