COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional farmhouse ale made with a very expressive yeast strain that contributes an array of tropical fruit, spice flavors and aromatics. Brewed with a variety of harvest grains including barley, wheat, oats and rye as was likely the case with farmhouse brewers of yore. The result is a complex, refreshing and distinctive example of this esoteric style. Intensely fruity (passion fruit, pineapple, mango, lychee), slightly spicy (clove, white pepper)

scarletfire65 (982) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Bottle at home. Hazy golden pour. Aroma is fruity with obvious banana and bubble gum coming through. Also a bit of funky yeast. Typical high carbonation. Starts out sweetish and quickly turns to a spicy rye palate, with white pepper and coriander. Grassy, bitter finish. Good working man’s saison.

Idiosynkrasie (4099) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 18, 2014
355ml bottle. Clear yellow-ish golden colour with average, diminishing, minimally lacing, white head. Saison typical yeasty aroma with vegetable touch, some lemon, herbal hoppy overtones. Taste is moderately sweet malty and fruity, notes of lemon, peach, a touch of mango, cautiously spicy yeasty overtones, some hoppy bitterness. Very explicit fruitiness, trimmed, civilised yeast "character".
