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!

Pretty good Saison expression, not much nose but a good palate and flavor, plus a little of that chalkiness that makes for the best Saisons. Super clean finish, Iíd give it another try if I found it.

Pours a bright yellow color with aroma of aged citrus like an orange that has been sitting too long. Taste of citrus, orange and lemon, with a mild bitter sour aftertaste. Not one of my favorites from this brewer.

On tap. I typically like saisons, but I found this one a bit harsh and gristy. Also a bit thin somehow. It could have been the keg, but it was a little flat for the style. Seems to lack focus, perhaps too many ingredients.

Growler from Big Z Beverage. Pours a clear golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of bready malt, oats, pepper, lemon, light fruits. Flavor is initially quite grainy (rice, wheat, oats for sure) with a sweet fruity finish. Overall a very drinkable and enjoyable beer! 7/4/8/4/15 [3.8/5]

Sampled at Get Real NY, cask ale festival. Had this directly after Mischief... which this beer doesnt touch. Awesome concept, tasty fruit character.

(Growler, via BMan1113VR ) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, grain, nuts, and florals. Flavor of rye, florals, spelt, banana, herbs, light citrus, and nuts with a dry finish.

GABF 2010 - I wanted to like this so bad, especially since it was nice and dry, a character that I really love in a saison - sadly, this one suffers from just too many damn ingredients and a poor hop profile - the grains quickly start to muddy things up - the bitterness is crisp at first, but then becomes increasingly too prominent, and eventually becomes soapy in the finish - lean malts and a flinty character are nice, but the other elements become unpleasant after a while.

Hazy golden beer with fluffy white head that deflates down to a thin cover. Flavor of light malt, some rye, and a moderate hoppy finish.

Sampled @ GABF! Nice crisp, earthy, spicy representation. 10 karat gold color with a small ivory head. Aroma shows lots of lemongrass, rye, yeast, and wheat. Flavor is similar with a very dry finish. Pretty good.
