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

Appearance: Pours an amber gold with a white ring of foam. The body was bright and clear. Aroma: Tripel yeast. Taste: Spicy yeast and pale dry malt. Mouthfeel: Thin and fizzy. Overall: This wasn’t complex enough for something called Seven Grain, and wasn’t that exciting.

Tap at Second Anniversary party. This brew has an amazing nose, but the taste is too floral for me to realistically drink. Nose has lots of wonderful floral notes and great citrus. The taste is sweet and way too floral.

Sampled at Max’s in Baltimore. Pours a totally clear, bright yellow with a cloudy white head. Spicy, sugary aroma, herbs, flowers, a little perfumy soap. Flavor is sweet, a little chalky, light citrus, light bread. Finish is chalky.

Pours a hazy, muddled yellow. First off you get the Belgian yeast coming at you then a gentle spicing. Not far off from style but really mild. I prefer Saison de Lente.

On tap at the Bruery’s 2nd Anniversary party. Yellow color. Dry saison character. Medium to low bitterness. Frothy head. Dry and seems low in flavor, because of lack of sweetness. Pretty easy to drink.

riversideAK (6140) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Interesting muddled grain bill on nose, tropical fruit, sweey fruity yeast notes as well. Golden orange pour, thinnish head, bright nice lace. Peppery, dry grainy, tons of different grain flavors, bread, wheat, rye perhaps, soft tropical fruit, peppery bitterness in the finish. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Leafy herbal bitterness is there as well as some lemon. Not bad, but a little muddled to me.

Tap at the Bruery. Pours a hazy golden with a medium bubbly/creamy white head. Aroma of great saison fruity and lightly spicy yeast profile. Also getting some bready and citrus notes. Some of the rye and oats coming through. Flavor of the same great saison character. The various grains coming through a bit more in the flavor. Nice and dry. Well done crisp, refreshing and flavorful saison.

Hazy golden color with white foam. Big barnyard dung, dry herbal, hay, multi grain aromas. Light bodied. Crisp, dry hay and pale malt, cereal grain flavors with a nicely bitter hop twang to finish. @ Bruery.

(fest rating) Draft @ Boonville Beer Fest. Pours a hazy, effervescent, whitish-straw color; fine-bubbled white head with solid retention and lacing; attractive beer. Lots of mineral and herbal bitterness (touches of grapefruit, even); some creamy toasty grains play out well behind it; zesty, hop-driven nose with some touches of honey and vanilla. Medium body (or less); high carbonation, moderate acidity; slightly creamy and non-astringent; lively, zesty herbal and grassy hop character; following the nose, solid amounts of toasty grains and vanilla and honey; certainly saison-like, beautifully dry and lightly peppery (and lighter bodied), with a load of herbal and mineral bitterness; great, great stuff. Refreshing and well-made. When The Bruery nails their attenuation... Lasting, toasty finish, showing a complexity of grains and lasting touches of citrus bitterness.

Had on tap at the Bruery. Pours amber-orange with slight head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of spices, yeast, malts, and oranges. One friend described the aroma as that of hot dogs - probably the bready yeast and malts. Taste of spices, malts, bread, and citrus hops. Finishes crisp and clean with good carbonation. Drinkable, but just not for me. The mix of all the grains - in both aroma and taste - just doesn’t hold up to the quality of the other Bruery beers available.
