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.

Bottle shared by Douglas. Thanks! A: Cloudy orange color with a foamy white head. N: Coriander, lemon rind, white wine grape, grapefruit, oak, white peppercorn, green apple, a bit of cracker, plenty of cantaloupe, melon, and there’s a bit of peach and minerality. T: Quite tart, lightly sweet. M: Light body, fizzy carbonation, drying, no alcohol. O: Fruity, delicious sour/wild saison. This is plenty easy to drink and I prefer it to something like Oak Age Bretta.

Batch 13. Bouteille bue avec madame ma femme. Heureusement pour moi, son verre est resté à moitié plein. Robe blonde et mousse blanche qui laisse quelques traces éparpillées. Au nez, fruits du verger, ananas et parfum de citron, effluves de petites baies, bois, bretts et effet lactique, paille et grain rustique. Au goût, les fruits sont aigres mais d’une incroyable justesse, poivrés et rafraîchissants avec une présence herbacée des levures sauvages. En bouche, le superbe corps est presque crémeux. En finale, c’est sec, bretté, frais, citronné, d’une précision chirurgicale. Exquise saison qui me semble plutôt être du côté de la sour/wild ale.

Dr_Fellini (1020) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - NOV 20, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a slightly hazy burnt orange color with an off white head. Aroma is very pleasant, mildly tart, fruity, light funk. Flavor has a bit more tartness to it that finishes into a very lovely fruity character. Very drinkable.

after4ever (7272) - Brier, Washington, USA - NOV 2, 2015
750, capped. Thanks so much again, J! Pours a cloudy bright medium orange with a fizzy tight platinum blond head. Bright nose, lots of pleasant lemon and hay and a slight hint of wet-grainstalk funk on the nose. Creamy medium body with bright, dancing carb. Beautiful gentle sweet lemon, light funk, and a tiny bit of white pepper on the mid palate. Perfect balance of acidic bite, funky character, and refreshing dryness. Wonderful beer worth stocking up on in huge quantities.

ciocanelu (835) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - AUG 29, 2015
Hazy pale color. Aroma makes me think of fruit that start to ferment, especially apples, like a hard cider with some slight funky notes on top. Taste starts with some clear brett notes and gets quite sour in the aftertaste. Not really my favorite kind of saison, felt more like a wild ale, but a solid beer overall.
