COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A truly local beer. Brewed in the spirit of the small farmhouse breweries that were so popular in Belgium and France in the not so-distant-past. We start with a distinctly Belgian recipe with a healthy base of pilsner malt and some biscuit malt to give it a little fullness. We than add some American and Czech hops to give it a bit of spiciness, and move into our fermenters. At that point, we add in our house strain of Ďwildí yeast which was cultured from some locally pressed cider. A little funky, and a little spicy, itís the perfect blend of flavors for this ale. When fermentation is going full-tilt, we kick it up another notch with several pounds of honey from our local beekeeper here in Flag. This gives it a nice dryness for such a big beer and some amazingly tantalizing flowery aromas. Why go through all this effort? Itís just the right thing to do. Local is where itís at, and one sip of this delicious beer and youíll have no choice but to agree.

Draft - Orange, grass and a bit of spice. Cloudy orange with a thin head. Orange, wheat, creamy and a bit of yeast. Very subtle and nice.

Caytinator (899) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2013
Pint on tap. Bright, honey colored translucent beer, almost opaque. No lacing or head off the tap. Strong lemon aroma, citrus-y sweet (Iím guessing thatís the honey). The taste is definitely fruity and sweet as well; itís bitter, too, so I guess that makes it a legit farmhouse, right? Not so fast, itís lacking something, maybe some spiciness or complexity. Hard to pin down in saisons. I think itís a noble effort for a new brewery but I canít rate it as well as true belgian saisons Iíve had either.

Hazy amber color, white head, some nice floral and funky flavors with some peppery bite. A really good farmhouse.

Pours a cloudy copperish/yellow color. Lots of honey, light funky yeast, floral flavors, a bit of earthyness. Great effort from a great new AZ brewery!

lingers, a great farmhouse ale, not typically the style I select, I was happy to have had it, would definitely order another, had on draft
