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)

Draft at the brewery. Pours cloudy pale yellow with a medium white head. Nose is wheat grains, eggy and sulfiric, light citrus. Mouth is lightly bitter, wheat, estery yeast. Kind of a saison/hefeweissen hybrid though a little too eggy for me to really get into.

UPDATED: SEP 12, 2012 Clear straw yellow body, large frothy white head. Streaky lacing. Nose is quite grainy with notes of wheat, hap, and cereal. Rounded out by a lightly spicy, citric fruitiness. Flavor is similar but with a bit more grain, pepper and lemon. Medium to light bodied, carbonation is a bit prickly when combined with the grainy/spicy flavors and the dry finish. Pleasant, but a bit underdeveloped to hang with the best saisons.

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUN 9, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2012 growler, hazy piss, thin white head. Nose is tangerine, less intense fantome 14, more earth and manure, less wheat. Soft carbonation. Flavor has more peach, low carb and wheat enhance dryness, bit of bubblegum ester disrupts in finish, and more balance necessary. Fantome 14 far better.

Tap at brewpub. Different experience. hazy lemon, white island head surrounded by supple ring. Nose is ultra bright citrus, feet, super dusty and doughy. Flavor shows bright lemon zest at front, mid is considerable dough, passion fruit emerging before lightly peppery, soft grass and crust finish. Moderate sized body couples with effervescent carbonation. Very nice, efficient, ethereal.

PhillyCraft (3443) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2012
On tap at Boilermaker, pours clear light yellow, with a medium fluffed out white head. Lacing was sporadic. Nose is apricot, orange zest, rye, stonefruit, and some pepper. Taste is sweet up front, spicy/crisp in middle, and refreshing in the close. Layered extremely well. Other notes of coriander, and belgian yeasts. Really enjoyed this saison.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2012 Growler courtesy of yourefragile. Served in a snifter. Need to get a growler of this myself over the weekend so I can use m Tired Hands glass. Pours a clear straw color with a nice white head with good retention and a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose carries light hay plus a touch of pepper. Nice bit of stone fruits lingering in the background plus a touch of lemon. Flavor takes it up another notch with some really nice light fruit notes atop a touch of spice. Good grain body. Crisp and extremely refreshing. I could drink this all day. Most impressive. Update on tap at the source. Better than I remember with a perfect body and smooth finish. Grains mix incredibly well. A better version of De La Senne, which I never thought I’d say.

Citrus and apple nose with light honey and cracker malt. Taste is fairly dry, light honey, some apricot, cracker, dusty yeast and grainy malts. Excellent. Very sessonable.
