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.

75 cl bottle @ tiong
Aroma has strong citrus notes. Also some tart, earthy notes and grapefruit. Flavour has strong lemon notes, grapefruit and lactic tones. Also some earthy tones typical to lambics on the flavour side – and sorbus. Not the most typical saison and rather weird but I seem to enjoy this. Could be a sour ale as well.

750ml bottle from Summer Secret Santa 2014, huge thanks to ineedbeer!

Pours orange with a smooth head. Aroma of tart bretta notes, funky yeastiness, ripe fruits, spices, earthy notes and grapefruit. Taste is grapefruity, funky yeasty and slightly sourish with notes of tart citrus, bretta and spicy vinegar. Finish is sourish, tartish and citrusy with notes of grapefruit and funky yeast, hints of bretta and vinegar. Quite complex, tasty and balanced sourish saison.

Bottle shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael! The beer is straw yellow and hazy with a bone white head. The aroma brings hay, grass, floral notes, lemon. Great flavor. Smooth on the palate with herbal notes, lemon. The finish is gentle, with minimal tartness. Sunshine in a glass. Tasty.

(FOFA 2014): Une belle saison agrumée et parfumée avec une irrésistible structure céréalière. Filiforme et élégante avec une finale sèche, légèrement acidulée.

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.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JUL 18, 2014
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 that’s 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, I’m guessing thanks to the Brett. Lingering green apple tartness. An absolutely delicious beer!

The only other thing that’s worse Is eating yeast spread on a toast... Add my mom’s liqueur to it It’s the only way to get it fixed
