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.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - AUG 6, 2013
750ml bottle. Hazy yellow orange with a fizzy white head. Aroma is funky earthy yeast, horse blanket, citrus, apple and light herbal. Flavor is tart upfront with a building sourness, there is some light citrus bitterness and wheat malt. Lighter body with active carbonation. This is an excellent beer, very well rounded tart saison with a nice light sourness.

PhillyCraft (2852) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle from Alan. Pours murky yellow gold with 2 finger head. Notes of earth, lemon skins, lemonade, salty sea, and peach brett. Good amount of carbonation to go with the medium body. Ultra dry but refreshing finish with tart citrus fruit skins coating the tongue. Another gem from Sante Adairius.

Hazy golden-orange body, large white head, soapy lacing. Bright pear, citrus, peach, funky brett, and light pale malts. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, soft acidity, great funk. Amazingly refreshing. Demonstrates that SARA is legit.

Pours clear, aroma was sweet with slight funky farmhouse nose. Taste is slightly tart and amazing, with some barnyard and earthy tones the barrel aging has added complexity to this delicious beer.

cpetrone84 (1202) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Pour is darker hazy yellow with a white head. The nose is very nice, strong funky Saison yeast that is very earthy and mushroomy. Some juicy lemon balance and a faint dusty tones. Taste is a touch sweeter, decent yeast presence, earthy an dusty, more prevalent lemon, grassy hops, light bitterness. Medium body, light carbonation and a semi dry finish.

jcartamdg (1671) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - JUL 1, 2013
Pours a hazy orange juice gold with no head. Aroma of funky Brett, lacto and citrus. Taste is funky, tart, citrusy. Refreshing with no alcohol presence. This beer is in my top three saisons. Funky and tart yet really drinkable. I love this beer!
