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)

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 (1376) - 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 (1670) - 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.

Growler, big thanks to tooch for giving this to away (to me). Pours hazed straw yellow with white head. Aroma has big lemon dill thing, funky, and wood. Flavors has mineral, funky, peppery, tannic finish. Thin body, some alc noted. Cool beer!

Courtesy Jon D. Pours golden, white head. Grass, pine, spice and coriander. Effing good. Solid Saison, spicy and brett. Yummy.

Growler shared by Drew, from Tooch. Thanks! Pours a pale golde, persistent head. Nose is clean and nice. Soft vanilla and lemon rind. Clean and crisp. Good pils malt notes as well. On tasting, low tartness, balanced bitterness overall. Clean and balanced, good white pepper and biscuit. Low sweetness is balanced. 3722? Pretty fantastic beer.

1 liter. Growler courtesy of Sean... Pours a semi-transparent golden hue, somewhat clear, and topped with a creamy thin film of soapy white head... Clean grassy and mild citrus notes to go along with a lighter dry Belgian yeast note. Clean dry not simple but nice... Flavors are more of the same with a clean grassy Belgian yeast. Lighter bodied and easy drinking overall.
