COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our latest creation, MUSE, is a Farmhouse Ale with a distinctive Weyerbacher signature. Farmhouse Ales, by tradition, were used as restoratives for workers during the warmer months under the hot midday sun. Typically made with barley, sometimes wheat and oats as well, a Farmhouse Ale could be light golden to amber in color, but always with a dry, slightly tart finish, thus being a great thirst quencher.
Weyerbacher MUSE is light amber in color, brewed with barley and a healthy dose of raw wheat and raw oats as per tradition, to give it a mouthfeel that’s both silky and light at the same time. The wheat and oats add a bit of cloudiness to the beer as well, so don’t be afraid, sometimes cloudy is good! A very special Belgian yeast strain was used to ferment this particular brew, and it was done at downright “hot” temperatures, 78 F, in order for the yeast to develop its spicy profile that is expected for a Farmhouse Ale. No spices were added to this brew, its all from the yeast.
MUSE is hopped with Styrian Goldings for bitter, and Saaz for aroma, both just adding even more to the dryness of the brew. Putting it all together, you have a slightly spicy palate, with pleasant aromas and very dry, mildly bitter finish. At 6.2%, you’ll want another one so you can ponder this intriguing taste profile, and you may find yourself wondering why you haven’t explored Farmhouse Ales before!

A- Translucent Golden yellow. Some haze but not as much as I would expect. Thin white head that fades. Surprisingly it leaves a good amount of lacing in the glass. S- Some yeast-but mostly an acidic smell. T- Initial taste is bland. Some yeast and very little citrus. Aftertaste is quite acidic with a burn of alcohol (surprising for the ABV). A hint of yeast remains on the palate-the only thing saving this brew. P- above average. High carbonation and good yeasty character to the body. O- Its drinkable. I’d drink more if I had more than one bottle but its not something Im going to venture to buy again. I liked Yard’s Saison much better. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-07-2007 20:49:45

22oz bomber. Pours very cloudy goldish-tan with a medium-thin head that disappears into *nothing* (not even little patches of bubbles on top - looks almost like fresh-pressed apple cider). The aroma is grassy and earthy from hops with a subtle touch of acidity and Belgian ester funk. The flavor starts dry with a light bready malt character and a strong ester-fruitiness and grassy hoppiness. At mid-palate, tasty yeasty esters combine with balancing earthy hop flavor and bitterness. Finishes dry with a light grainy malt character, interesting Belgian fermentation character (fruity, spicy, light acidity), and soft bitterness. The mouthfeel is brisk and highly-bubbled (despite its cidery appearance) with a medium body. Overall, not very pretty, but interesting with a refreshing complexity and drinkability, and very Belgian. Not bad at all.

blankboy (6046) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2009
Bottle [22oz] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a nice looking, slightly hazy, golden-orange with a long-lasting frothy off-white head. Pleasant aroma is yeasty, spicy & fruity along with biscuity malt. Flavour’s not as good as the aroma, but still fine: Sweet with yeast, biscuity malt, some alcohol and spices. The finish is a bit iffy and slightly harsh. Average bodied. A good Saison, not great, but I’d drink it again.

Draft at Rattle N Hum. Pours a nice gold with a fluffy head. Nose is pretty standard, light plums & peaches, a touch of lemon. Pretty one dimensional. Taste is a little grainy, estery with banana & coriander. Light lemon on the finish, dry. Light, watery body. Okay.
