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.

glennmastrange (2272) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Tap. Moderate to heavy grain, hay and light bread for the malt, moderate flowers and grass for the hops, moderate wet concrete for the yeast, with a note of peach in the bckground. Head is average size, white with spotty lacing and good legs. Color is hazy yellow. Flavor starts harshly acidic and sour, then finishes heavily acidic, moderately bitter and sour. Palate is light, watery, with a fizzy carbonation and a tart finish. This beer is verging on a Sour Ale but there’s not enough dankness. This is a superb Saison.

Lubiere (10094) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014
A lightly hazed golden saison with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet lemony malt with light grassy hops, acidity, OK. In mouth, a nice sweet fruity malt with nice lemon juice, perfumy notes, light talcum, light salty notes, very nice.

Draft at Sante Adairius. Hazy blonde, small but persistent head. The initial spicy estery slightly acid aroma belies the sharpness of this beer. Further down the glass it smells more acid. Touch of sweet malt then lemony citrus acidity and some sharp grape, redcurrant, orange notes. Dry finish. Delicious, subtle and complex. Really nice.

Poured from 750, into a Barrelworks rastal teku glass. Hazy yellow gold with a minimal white head that quickly dissipated. Nose is a bit funky and fruity, taste is mildly sour, dry, and somewhat bitter. Nice dry finish.

ericdevin (799) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle via unknown at de Garde Summer Gathering. Get the fuck out! Not at all traditional, but incredibly impressive. Pours a cloudy golden color, not much head, body cloudy and turbid. Aroma slightly funky, some Brett fruitiness, but the body, wow! So juicy and fresh, this is really remarkable. FInish is a lingering citrus bitterness, tart yet dry. Stellar, really.

75 cl bottle.
Pours cloudy yellow color with a small head. Lemon, herbs and yeast on the nose, some earthiness too. Sourish fruits, rowan berries, gooseberries and citrus on the flavor, some mild wooden notes too. A weird mix of a Saison and a Sour Ale. Tasty anyway.

lusikka (6267) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a small head. Aroma of fresh citrus, sorbus and freshly cut grass. Flavour of tart berries, sorbus, apricot, wood, brett and white bread. Mild lactic acid notes. Long sour finish. Far from the original Saison style, pretty close to a sour ale.
