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.

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.

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).

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.

Damico (3144) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Bottle from May 2010. Pours clearer golden amber with a decent off white head. The aroma is lighter than expected, some sweet wheat notes, no spice at all, and a bit of dry grapes. The flavor brings some dry grape notes as well with a sweeter finish. The body is medium, easy to drink for sure, good for the style.

Draft. Pours a nice red/amber with a lasting white head. Soft dusty aroma. Taste is just faintly sweet but very quenching. Slightly juice like, but very easy to drink.

glennmastrange (2681) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Tap. Moderate grain and cereal for the malt, lemon and orange juice for the hops, sweet dough and mustiness for the yeast, with honey and light spices like coriander in the background. Head is off-white, frothy/creamy with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear amber. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly to moderately acidic to start, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, a little slick and has a lively carbonation. Both refreshing and flavorful is what makes this a tasty Saison.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2012
My Bottom Line :
Peppery spiciness and orangey fruitiness adorn rich rye and bread dough allusions while minty, earthy hops add even more depth.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A beautiful head of foam garnishes the clear amber.
-The fluffy mouthfeel is highly enjoyable.
-The yeast and hop tandem is complex, well chosen.
-The hop bitterness is spicy and earthy.
-The rye contribution is prevalent yet never heavy.

10 oz. Snifter showed hazy gold, nice head for such low carbonation. Nice retention. Smells of Belgian yeast, candy sugar with a light flower hop. Great flavor, yeast has a big presence. Spicy finish. Along with flavors from nose. REAL flavorful. Give a try, I could drink this anytime.

Lukaduke (3038) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Pours a deep copper color with a finger or so off white head. The aromas are ripe citrus, touches of sweet pale malts and alot of funky yeast notes as well. On the palate its a big Belgian golden ale style with lots of subtle herbal earthy notes mixed with sweet malty flavors and nice bitterness too. The spicy rye comes through as well as the smooth full body from the oats but loads of carbonation make this somewhat refreshing and not too boozy.
