Brett/peppercorn saison

Thomas is the third installment in our “Bearded Farmer” series of saisons. In keeping with the farmhouse brewing tradition, the idea here is to brew each successive beer a little (or a lot) differently than the ones before it.

This Saison-style ale uses Pilsner & Munich malts with Wakatu, Motueka & Pacific Gem hops, and it is fermented with a single strain of French saison yeast

New and fresh bottle brought back by Doug K. A little funk and spicy. Lemon, new world hops, brett and peppercorns work in the deep secondary. Very drinkable great summer beer.

Bottle from whole foods midtown east. Pours cloudy brownish orange with huge white head. Nose of tropical fruits and spice. Tastes of tropical fruits and grapefruit, black pepper, coriander, doughy, some funk, ginger and lightly herbal. Not as dry as most saisons but quite pleasant with lingering finish.

RoyalFlushing (326) - Mamaroneck, New York, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Bottle poured a murky peach with a huge white foamy head and intense lacing. Aroma is big lemon zest, tropical fruit, and subtle yeast funk. Taste is initiallly citrus followed by a wave of spicy yeast with some funk and spices. Enjoyable carbonation, thick mouthfeel for a saison, and spices lingering.

mansquito (5474) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Whole Foods, Bowery 750ml ($12): Pours a really hazy orange/yellow with a white head. Aroma is funky, somewhat citrus, yeasty, and a tad herbal and spicy. Taste is the funk. Not as much dryness as other saisons. Hoppy tinge. Sort of everywhere a saison/Belgian ale tries to go. Good, but not as impressive as some of Westbrook’s other beers.

After having this beer for the first time on Draft at the Brick Store, I spread its gospel through trades to whose lacking distribution of Westbrook beer. Pours the hazy side of yellow with full white head. The scent is a beautifully blended mix of citrus and savor. The flavor follows the scent with a bitter tartness flowing directly into savory notes. Bubbly, like a good Saison ought to be. Draft - Brick Store Pub - Decatur, GA

7/3/13. 750mL bottle thanks to nulledge. Hazy golden pour with a small khaki head. Funky yeast in the aroma with plenty of fruitiness and a touch of acidity. The flavor shows funky yeast as well with citrus, ripe melons, and lingering dryness. Tasty.
