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.

Bottle. Pours amber brown with off white head. Nose and taste of rye, aged fruit, toasted oats, yeast, toasted barley, banana, clove, nutmeg and pear. Medium body. A little too much alcohol in the finish for a saison.

Cloudy gold beer, little white head. Softish palate, semi dry. Interesting and drinkable beer! The malts are lager like but with strong rye spice. Trace of wheaty malt. Nice mild bitterish orange on the back end. Wheat beer orange. Carbonated sting in the tail. Very quaffable.

Drake (8029) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Bomber from Nikki’s Liquors, Providence. Pours a hazy amber color with a thin tan head. Average head retention. Aroma of oats, grain, honey, nuts, stone fruits, floral hops. The taste is honey, caramel, bananas, other faint fruits, lightly bitter finish. Actually tastes EXACTLY like a snow cone flavor I got down the block from my father’s house back when I was seven or so. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

ben4321 (3824) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from The Hop, 10/12/12

Aroma: The aroma is Belgian yeast, fruity notes, a little spice, and some fairly mild barnyard funk
Appearance: This one pours a cloudy orange color with an off-white head and some light spots of lace
Flavor: Tastes much like the nose but the hops come out more, it is fairly yeast, lightly bitter, and lightly funky
Palate: The body is medium, it has a pretty good mouthfeel, and a lightly spicy, lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: I actually quite enjoyed this one. The nose is fairly Belgian yeast/typical Saison, but the flavor adds a touch more of a hop balance. Overall, it just works pretty well, with a nice, drinkable feel. I liked it quite a bit. Another nice job by Pretty Things, (and happy Friday).

Steve_0 (2542) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2012
Bottle at home. Poured a hazy copper color in appearance with a frothy off-white head no lacing. Biscuit, spice, light banana, fruity esters, coriander, and bread in the aroma. Taste is spicy yeast, clove, tart lemon peel, white pepper, and banana. Mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation. Good Saison.

Lost my notes but this was an overall great beer - Poured golden with white head, refreshing flavors and palate.
