COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weíve been hard at work on a recipe that includes Ė you guessed it Ė seven different grains. Letís see if I can name them all: barley, wheat, rice, oats, corn, rye and...spelt. Yep, I think thatís it. The result is a perfect summer beer. Itís about 5% ABV and displays a nice fruity yeast character that finishes dry and slightly hoppy. Itís seven kinds of wonderful!

Tasted on 1/23/11 on draft at Bruery Provisions. Pours hazy golden with an average, smooth, white head that recedes to a thin lace collar. The nose is earthy saison yeast, an interesting and unique malt aroma, and some spicy hops. The flavor is candi sweet up front, moving to the earthy flavor along with bitter and spicy hops on the back of the palate. The body is light with an oily texture, livly carbonation, and a long bitter and herbal hops finish.

On tap at the Bruery. Kind of weird at first. Tasty but a little thin. THe grains all kind of meshed together without one overwhelming taste.

Seven grains? More gimmicky than great. Flavor profile was weird - like cheap adjunct stuff. I didnít think the aroma matched very well either. By far my least favorite beer from the Bruery.

Draft, pours hazed gold with white head. Nose is floral, mineral, and sulfur. Flavors are lightly sweet grain and floral. Watery feel with short palate. Good for a cheap table beer but at $7 a pour, nah.

On tap at GABF 2010 then again at The Bruery Provisions. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small white head sitting on top. The aroma is only mildly funky with slight spiciness from the rye. Besides that I get grain and lemon. The flavor is good but not too interesting. Pale malt base along with rye, lemon, and other citrus notes. Medium-light bodied and fairly crisp with medium-plus carbonation. Solid American saison overall, but nowhere near some of the best Iíve had.

zdk (1809) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 19, 2010
sweet and funky, apples, peaches and grainy notes. lemon zest, spicey rye. nice light funk and fruity. Astringent finish.

jredmond (5300) - Manhattan, New York, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Draft at Churchillís pub with Linh. Pours a light clear body with white lacing. Aroma is sweet malt and rye. Mouthfeel is nice aggressive carbonation with notes of Belgian candy, spice, sweet rye, and malt.

Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Pours a near cloudy yellow (barely hazy) with a small, fizzy white head. Okay retention and no lace. Aroma is all clovey Belgian yeast, lemon, fresh grass. Taste is very Belgian in character: dry, candi sugar, big clovey yeast character. Moves to grassy bitter full of citrus peel and soapy hops. Dry, fizzy, watery palate. Not necessarily rich or hoppy. Comes across as a pilsener with Belgian yeast.

Served on tap at the The Bruery Provision. The appearance is a slightly cloudy golden hue. The flavors and aromas have a bit of a barnyard note that everything rides on. Iím not sure if I am tasting that wrong. A bit of other grains are picked up, some rye, and barley in particular, I like the concept and there are some cool flavor mixes in there but Iím not so sure Iím digging it.
