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.

On tap at the brewery. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of sourness and tartness, some pale malts, a light citrus note, and some dryness. Flavor a great blend. Average texture. A really good beer.

Bottle generously shared by Vinny. Pours glowing, vibrant sunshine with a spotty white head and lace. Nose is Granny Smith, fresh pear, rocks in clean rain, lemon pith, and dry oak barrels. Taste is lemon skin, grapefruit pith, tangy Spree candy, and tongue-drying tangerine. The experience of sipping this is like closing one's eyes and having a clean, dry, mineral-laden wave wash calmly over his tongue. I picture the wave washing up upon the shore if my tongue, the moisture saturating the porpoise sand, as the wave ebbs into the ocean once again, the dry salinity lifts up into the seabreeze of the next inhalation. Beautiful beer in every facet and regard. Clearly made with the unique, all-to-rare convergence of precocious talent and sincere love and passion. If the brewer of this beer is reading this, please know that this beer was a truly special experience. Thank you. Perfect. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle care of Vinny. Pours beautiful hazy golden with light white lacing. Aroma is light delicate sour tart character. Wonderfully simple, tart nose. Mouthfeel is light with notes of fresh, sour fruit, sourdough and lemons. Great sour saison.

mcberko (6300) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 28, 2014
750mL bottle, pours a clear blonde with a medium white head. Aroma brings out farmhouse notes, citrus, and hay. Flavour brings out sharp citrusy notes, farmhouse notes, yeast, and very light funk. Very citric and sharp, finishing lightly tart and yeasty. Moderately drinkable, with a few rough edges. Doesn’t stand up to the hype, but it’s still solid.

jbeatty (1020) - New York, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Bottle, thanks to ineedbeer, 03/15/2014. Pours milky golden yellow, frothy white head fades to densely-bubbled haze on the surface, a few legs of lacing left behind. Aroma is bright tangerine, pineapple, white grape and peach, tangy funkiness, dry hay. Taste brings more tangy funkiness and mellow tartness, light citric acidity with tropical fruit popping out, underlying biscuit and touch grassy bitterness coming through the end. Medium body, lively, bright sharp flavors. Excellent.

750ml bottle. Poured a cloudy yellow color with an averaged sized head. Citrus, floral, funky, yeast, fruity, and vanilla. Clean and very easy to drink.

VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 10, 2014
Poured a golden Orange with a medium sized pure white head. Brett dominated the aroma with some subtle citrus notes as well. Medium bodied that was perfectly carbonated and had a wonderful dry finish. Amazing beer.
