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)

8 day old 64 ounce growler. Crispy yellow appearance. Minimal head. Loving the oatmeal and lemon zest notes. Really nice. Taste is a crisp lemon wheat with a peppery finish. Very impressive.

1L growler, sent from callmemickey (thanks a lot, Ryan), pours a hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of dry wheat upfront some rustic farmhouse notes and hay. Flavour is extremely refreshing, with loads of dry wheat, lightly tart citrus, hay and some rustic notes. Quite flavourful for a sub-5% beer. Extremely refreshing and well-constructed. Great stuff.

keanex (1592) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - APR 16, 2013
On tap at Tired Hands.
Appearance: Clear pale straw body with a thick creamy white head.
Aroma: Light aroma with some lemon, straw and a slight tarty funk.
Taste: Bright flavor with straw, some peppery spice, and a mild finish.
Palate: Medium creamy body, soft carbonation.
Overall: Good saison, but could use a stronger finish and aroma.

Growler at home with friends. Pour is pale straw with a small white head and decent lacing. Biscuity, somewhat spicy, straw, muted aroma, grassy, lemony, and light vanilla in the aroma. Taste is floral, light bodied, biscuity, hay, a touch of pepper, citrusy, tangy, and grassy with a light bite on the finish. Thin mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Solid and definitely a table beer, but didn’t live up to the hype for me.

Growler @ Stephen’s place. Thanks! Pours a hazy yellow appearance with a white head. Somewhat spicy yeasty, grassy, herbal, floral, peppery aroma. Fairly dry, lemon, grassy herbal, a bit chewy, passionfruit flavor. Super easy drinking.

JoeinDahlem (1359) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - APR 4, 2013
Really pleasant light blond ale, mostly dry, grainy, with a nice crisp spicy hop-bitterness. Spicy yeasty esters nicely subdued. A nice, simple piece of work that asks for a larger glass.

jcos (1643) - Maryland, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Draft at Churchkey, 3/27/2013. Nice amount of spice in the aroma, light body, hint of rye. Nice amount of flavor for the ABV.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Pours pale yellow. Spicy peppery nose with some earthy hop and yeast aromas mixed in. Flavor is similar but light while drinking the hand farm side by side.

BeerBlitz (72) - Roslyn, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2013
On draft at Tired Hands. Not as good as I expected. Too light bodied. Tasted like the second runnings of a saison. Not enough there for me.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 3, 2013
On draft at the brewpub. Spice cabinet and raw grains aroma. Flavors translate as a full Saison, three-quarter strength. Good yeast, great malt complexity, and a nice sprinkle of yeast. This is a very fine table Saison, up there with Dupont Avril, almost a bit fresher. Dry, but with light acidity and a touch of yeasty juicy fruit to keep the palate round. In the hot, summer heat, this would be a godsend.
