COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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

curepute (140) - New York, USA - APR 8, 2014
Bottled 5/13 Very hazy golden orange with 3 finger foamy head which grows to 4 fingers. Tropical hop nose (like a mild IPA). Taste has tropical fruit, little bit of dank hops, big malt profile, corner of bread thrown in, great yeast flavor. The hop bitterness carries through to the finish, but it’s buttery and not overpowering. Excellent stuff.

Excellent stuff. Much hoppier than the previous Farmers. Still has some great citrus and a wonderful effervescence. My least favorite of the Farmers; but not by a huge margin. An excellent summer saison. Full review: http://theunitedstatesofbeer.com/post/52572015126/

JStax (3243) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle shared thanks to lukaduke. Pours a copper color with a big white head of foam. Musky and spicy aroma with some yeasty and herbal qualities coming through in the taste. Pretty good. Lighter body and mouthfeel, especially considering the ABV.
