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.

This is it, perhaps the greatest beer I have had. The balance in this thing is beyond anything I have ever had. Moderately tart, fresh, carbonation is perfect, body is medium light, but it feels and drinks fresh. Funky, vibrant, absolutely delightful.

750 ml bottle shared by yourefragile, thanks Moll. Pours a hazy dark golden/near orange color with lasting off white edge head. Aroma is Brett yeast, bright citrus fruits with lemon and tangerine. Flavor is same with bright carbonation and dry sweet finish. Lasting tart citrus finish.

750ml bottle via trade with bytemesis. Pours a hazy gold with some sudsy white head. Nose is really lovely, lemony, like a lemon tea, yogurt, lacto, straw, mild perfume, some lime, some dried herbs. Flavor has this wonderful and refreshing tart lemon character, grass, straw, mild malt, cracker, herbs, perfume, lime, some mineral water. Lightly tannic, lightly tart finish.

Bottle: Thanks, Erik. Cloudy, pear-yellow body. Basically opaque, thick & juicy looking. White foam settles to a collar quickly. Aroma of light, sweaty funk, lemon-lime, damp hay, a bit of citric tartness. Nice Brett character, a good amount of sweaty barnyard & horsey funk towards the back-end, a little pineapple. Taste has more acidic & seemingly lacto tartness than expected, but thatís not a bad thing at all. Lovely lemon, lime, citrus, & pineapple sour notes bust through. Big backing of rustic straw, grain, bready yeast, & a good layer of dusty cobweb funkiness. A little bit of woodiness in the finish, Iím guessing thanks to the Brett. Lingering green apple tartness. An absolutely delicious beer!

Bottle shared at Kulminator by Dennoman - thanks Dennoman. Hmmm, the lacto and peppery yeast are strong in this one. mŤh...

Bottle thanks to Mike! Nose is a moderate funk with some lemon and citrus. Pour is a slightly hazy yellow with a white head that laces well. Taste is a barny lemon and citrus blend of greatness. A pleasant honey malt presence with a drying finish. Nothing short of amazing.

With the crew. Hot damn this was a good saison tasting day. Light yellow color, little bit of a foamy gusher so watch out on opening this one. Spice and yeast in the aroma. Grassy herbal notes. Really good light fruit, lemon and banana. Nice balance and insane complexity.
