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.

My Saison Rating #100 Bottle at Dangerous Bottleshares #17 Thanks to Bursprak for this treat! Pours yellow orange with a white head. Aroma has a solid funky base which is very saison-like. Also some straw, oak, hay, some citrusy fruits, apples, peach and orange. Weak cheese as well. The taste is citrusy and gentle funky with notes of apples, weak white pepper, cheese, pear, peach, hay and oak. Complex and great balance.

A really nice dry saison with low levels of funk and tartness, but complex and smooth as hell. Really hope to have this again.

Sarlacc83 (1809) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 20, 2015
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.
