Our four-grain saison. Brewed with rye, wheat, oats, and malted-barley in homage to the original farmers (not brewers) that originated this style. Suggestions of tropical fruit, citrus rind, and black pepper. (Originally known as FarmHands)

Swingtop, 2/4/14, from Jesterdeal, drunk on 2/16/14
Lovely golden-pear colored body is topped by a smattering of white head that recedes to cover. Light haziness to it that increases as I get towards the bottom of the growler.
Very light tartness in the nose, just a hint of lactic-like cheesiness followed by dry wheat and oat cream-like notes and floral hoppiness that mixes with pepper phenols. Extremely dry and clean, no flaws or alcohol.
Light bubblegum, pears and wheat creaminess in the mouth with a touch of lemon zest spiciness from the hops, plentiful pepperiness from the yeast and a soft but ample body showcasing the supple texture provided by the different grains. This swingtop is 12 days old and it says "Drink within 48 hours" which I initially took to mean, after opening. But I’m thinkin they meant within filling...Anyways, my rating definitely reflects how this would be fresh on draft, not 12 days old in a growler. Pretty frickin good. Thanks Jesse!

Bright in citrus, murky in yellow appearance. Strong notes of rusticness, cardboard and hay. Heavy on the rye. Refreshing, though, and easy to drink.

Pours light yellow with a spicey rye bite. Taste is grassy, with spice and lemon. Not bad.

Draft @ Tired hands, 1/24/2012. I prefer this over the H.C.S I sample right before it. Really beautiful flavor of fresh cut grass, zesty yeast with a chewy mouthfeel from the oats the brewer uses. The flavor is balanced with sweet grain and a nice level of bright citrus hops. The finish is clean and real refreshing. This would be great in the summer but also works well in the cold of January. Great classic example of the style.

11/6/13 $2 4oz at the bar. 2nd 4oz beer after filling up 7 growlers to trade. First saison ever drank while "rating beers". Pours a slightly cloudy yellow with nice lemony yeast flavors. I liked it better then the "we are infinite..." ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the brewery. Peppery yeast notes and a bit of citrus on the nose. Flaovr is similar with a thin but sharp mouthfeel. Interesting beer. Good saison.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Aroma is nice with barnyard, yeast, citrus, and violets. Pours cleanish and Amber with a small head. Taste is clean and wonderful with yeasty barnyard, slight citrus, and perfection. This is a perfectly made saison.

This one poured a hazy bright yellow with a white head. Aroma was of pale grain, lemon, coriander , chamomille, and grass. Flavor was similar, mild harness, but a bit too grainy for me without much pop.
