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.

Nice fresh aroma with hints of Brett. No noticeable hop aroma. Straw colored and cloudy, low white head. Sour right off the bat and it lingers a bit. Dry light finish. Very nice beer just a bit sour.

Theydon_Bois (12058) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
Bottle shared at theFuck Off Massive Friday tasting, big back slaps to our host Bruce for sharing this one - where was the sound track for this one man ?03/01/14. Murky light orange with a thin off white covering. Nose is tarte apricot, light spice, hay, orange pith, Brett notes, funky. Taste comprises tarte apricot, citric tinged straw, light farmyard, pithy citrics, hay, touh of funk and subtle Brett. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish. Decent saison but I was expecting more from this one given the ratings, didn’t hold a great deal of depth, solid but no world beater for me.

Mega Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks again to our host for this one. Very hazy gold beer, bubbly white head. Light airy palate, semi dry. Slightly sherbet sourness. Subtle floralness. Sourness resolves in to orange - lemon. Nice mix of flavours and very approachable.
