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.

Leighton (17802) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle shared in London during the First Tasting of the Year. Many thanks to Bruce for this special one, pours cloudy, bright yellow-gold with a frothy white head. Gorgeous aroma, lots of lemon, mango, very mild funk, hints of tangy wheat. Light sweet flavor with playful lemony sourness, mild citrus rind bitterness, a bit of hay, moderate acidity. Light bodied with average, spritzy carbonation. Super clean finish, lightly drying, with more lemony tartness, sour lemon candies, lemon rind, hints of funk, delicate balancing sweetness. Superb balance. Beautiful.

Theydon_Bois (16262) - 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.
