A homage to traditional European beers brewed for quenching the thirst of farm workers of "Saisonaires." A unique Belgian Saison yeast is used to impart a mixture of spice, fruity and earthy notes along with a lip smacking palatability.

nice orange color with a white head. Fruity aroma with a nice yeast, fruit and spice flavor, a fine example of a saison.

Orange, with a white head. Aromas are fruit, yeast, and spice. Flavors are spice, yeast, fruit, and malt. Doesnít seem exactly like a saison, but it good anyway.

2006 bottle from Tom (oldgrowth) Thanks! Smuttynose is one of my favorite breweries, if not my favorite. Pours out an orange color with a thick white head. Smell is fruity and earthy, full of yeast and malts. Taste is rich and smooth, very easy to drink. Goes down so easily I could almost chug it. This is the best saison I have ever drank, hands down. Smuttynose is almost a reason for this southern boy to move to New Hampshire. Simply awesome. VERY underrated on this site. Thanks so much for this one Tom!!

Dark, sedate yellow pour with a dingy white head. Smells like sour bologna, but not in a bad way really. Some light lemon notes. A nice watermelon tang. Wet lettuce flavor I donít like, dusty, toffee, and poppies seed. Dry peppermint flavor with an orange peel flavor that lasts. Ap-3 ar-8 tas-6 pal-3 ov-14

Big ups to cousin brian for hooking me up with this one. Nice nose. Malty and citrusy tastes as well. Yeast predominates. Finishes a little sweet.

Bomber - Poured a darkish amber with a thin whitish head. Aroma was distinctive of Belgian ales... very yeasty and rich with only a very slight hint of hops. Flavor is also of strong Belgian yeast with a minor amount of sourness. Malty sweetness is in the background, but supports the overall richness of the brew. Palate is rich and creamy. Finish is slightly sour and fairly long lasting. A really great beer and one that I sincerely wish to repeat soon...

Ok, so I was a little congested when I tried this beer, and Iíve pushed the rating up slightly to compensate. Even with limited faculties I can tell this beer has great depth and complexity. The pour is beautiful. Clear golden straw supports a foamy, creamy off-white head. Floral hop aromatics spiced up with cloves. Some citrus hops as well. Fruits. These are balanced very nicely by maltiness and the obvious and always welcome Belgian ale yeast.

Bomber. Sweet, sugary, slightly orange hoppy aroma. This is quite floral and aromatic. Certainly sweet and aromatic for a saison, yet this is a very pleasurable aroma. Transparent golden-copper color with a small off-whitish head and fair lacing. Sweet, sugary start with some pineapple notes present. A little musty in the middle, with some sticky toffee notes later on with some more floral and grassy hops. I donít think this is a very authentic saison, but it is an enjoyable and flavorful beer, nonetheless.

WTF????? this beer is undeserving of its rating. Sure, Smuttynose makes some excellent beers.... but this is not one of them. you get no points for reputation. this beer is weak and uninspiring. "Farrmhouse" means peculiarly everyday, I think

Pours clear pale amber with a medium sized, white head. The aroma is floral and peppery with some bready malts. The flavor is slightly sweet, herbal and spicey. The mouthfeel is light with lively carbonation.
