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)

Tap at the Blind Tiger, for the Two Roads NYC premier. This beer was, to put it simply, undrinkable. The aroma reeked of bandaids, duct tape and burning rubber, so much so that I nearly needed to close my nose for every sip I choked down. The flavor was hardly any consolation, a mish-mash of cheap, grainy flavors, a strange lemon juice note that I got in all of the Two Roads beers, a splash of sweetness and then an empty, lifeless finish.

Phil wrote the book on saison. Literally. Perhaps it’s time he rereads it.

12 oz. bottle, gifted by AirForceHops. Thanks Chris. Pours a pale straw yellow with a two finger white head that grudgingly recedes leaving a good amount of lace. Fruit, yeast and spice on the aroma. Lightly sweet flavor from the fruit characteristics with a yeast/wheat mustiness. Again, some spice to add interest and a mild hop touch. Clean and dry in the mouth with good carbonation. Light bodied. Good, I enjoyed it.

12 oz. bottle from a six pack purchased WorldWide Wine Cellars, Tolland, CT. Sifter shows a nearly clear yellow color with lasting head. Nose is mostly fruit with a touch of straw. Flavor has a backbone of pale malts with pepper and again straw. Tropical fruits show near the finish. The body is medium with a bit of chewiness from the oats. Is this the best most complex saison you will find? Of course not but it is drinkable without any real problems.

Reminds me of Christmas, probably due to the spruce taste it has. Such a taste masked the slight bitterness and any other flavorings. Enjoyable nonetheless.
