COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison Bernice is an exquisitely fermented farmhouse ale. Dry and refreshing Bernice is made of the freshest on-hand and locally available ingredients. She saw multiple yeast additions including Brettanomyces and further bottle aging. Drink now or cellar properly. Saison Bernice will endure. The beer in this bottle is alive. So is the yeast. Grow it, keep it, use it. We encourage you to brew your own.

joet (2408) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Pale golden/apricot color slightly hazy with fine white foam. High effervescence, spritzy. Mild astringency. Beautiful aroma hay, citrus fruit oranges and touch of grapefruit - medium full. Acidic and sharp on the tongue, lightly sour. Mild white vinous notes. Second pour, buoyed yeast bodies, large. More barnyard aromas emerging as it warms, 51 degrees. Admittedly off-put by the dreadlock chunk of yeast that broke free from the bottom and moved into the glass, this beer is now becoming more and very charming. Citrus tang with a touch of phenol, clove, becoming more apparent as it warms 54 degrees. In a bright and good direction.

Bottle thanks to the Tampa crew. Cheers, guys! Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a white head. Nose is lemon, citrus, light malt, yeast, and some funk. Flavor is similar with lemon, citrus, some malt, yeast, funk, and some pepper. Light to medium in body and very nice overall.

Benzai (10582) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2015
Sampled from bottle @ RBBSG 2015. Hazy light orange color, small off-white head. Aroma is lightly malts, nicely fruity, slightly a hint of bitter. Taste is very flavorful: lovely fruity, very refreshing, the slightest fruity sour hint. Suitable body and carbonation. Absolutely delicious!

markextrae (2183) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2015
75cl bottle shared by a friend. Poured a slight cloudy dark yellow to golden colour with a small white head. Nose of sour tart fruits, citrus, dusty horseblanket, grapefruit, and white grapes, stone fruits, zest, and Some spicy yeast. Taste of cherries, with Some tangerine sweetness. Lot’s of funky brett notes, cheese, with a good amount of tartness. Leading to a great dry dusty refreshing aftertaste. One hell of a beer. Awesome! Can’t wait to try the west ashley

reggiedunlop (3469) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2015
Pours a hazy pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has some rindy, cheesy funk, tart fruit and really subdued pepper. Flavor follows suit...nothing dominating...beautiful and delicate complexity. Mouthfeel is light and silky with a dry and tart rindy/fruity finish. Excellent.

4/VII/15 - 75cl bottle @ RBBSG IV - BB: n/a (2015-835) Thanks to JefVerstraete for sharing the bottle!

Pretty cloudy yellow beer, small aery white head, little stable, non adhesive. Aroma: sourish, funky, fruity, peaches. MF: ok carbon, medium to light body. Taste: sourish, citrus, very fruity, funky, soft bitterness, some tannins. Aftertaste: very fruity, peaches, citrus, lemony, bit funky. Is it a saison? Nope. this is a very nice fruity US sour.

umich03jm (2841) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Bottle thanks to Errl! Aromas are lemon juice, berries, musty hay and oak. Tastes both tart and sweet. Very little sourness. So easy to slam. Really good and easy to drink but also nothing really to make it stand out as a top 5 saison.

yourilevesque (474) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2015
Dégustée au RBBSG 15 chez Tim. Cheers! Bière blonde, trouble avec un simple anneau blanc en guise de mousse. Nez de Brettanomyces, alcool léger et beaucoup de fruits frais tels la pêche et l’abricot. Très effervescente en bouche qui confère une impressionnante minéralisé et légèreté au liquide. Le parfum de pêche est encore plus puissant en bouche qu’au nez. C’est pétillant, fruité, minéral, scintillant! Corps moyen, peu de sucre et longue en bouche, sans arrière-goût ni amertume apparente. Un très gros coup de coeur pour tous les convives présents.
