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!

bomber from a Village Beer Merchant in Buffalo. pours hazy orange with a huge white head. laces up my tulip real nice. dry dusty aroma with some decomposing pale malt. peachy flavours upfront with a long dry peppery finish. a decent saison but my guess is this bottle was old and IMO i think that age has helped this brew. id buy it again.

After a horrible night of studying I am ready for bed. I hope this S.O.B. puts me to sleep! Ah, so this 4 a.m. beer session better prove itself worthy. Anyways, 22 oz. from Greens on Ponce De Leon. Didn’t cost as much as any of the other Weyerbacher’s. Wow, thankfully, the head isn’t a huge issue. It actually fades away rather quickly and I didn’t even tilt the glass to facilitate that. Darker color for a saison; has an orange/caramel color. Nice looking saison if you ask me. The head isn’t a pain in the ass, and the beer looks nice, but nothing spectacular. Smells like it is going to have a bit of a sour taste to it, but there is that tart yeast-like aroma that hits the nose. Not overly pungent, but very subtle aroma that dances on my nose, and then leaves quickly. Slightly fruity and sweet aroma, but not extremely pungent. Decent aroma. Oh ya. lemon. Kind of a sweet candy lemon flavor. For having a lemon/yeast like flavor it is not very tart. Not a very smooth saison. I feel that the flavor is just flat i.e. it quickly develops and then leaves nothing but a subtle sweet yeast taste. Overall, the beer has a decent aroma, and a short-lived taste. The beer is almost borderline bland, and doesn’t carry much of a palate. Ok brew.

Horrible, taste of fish and mayonnaise. The strong palate doesn’t help either the nasty flavor just keeps coming. I would wish this on anyone. Bottle at Lucky Liquors in Miami

From a bottle poured a hazy straw color with a fair amount of head. Nice sweet spicy flavor with a lingering aftertaste.

Too much lemon, overbearing. Lacking in complimentary flavor. Overly simplistic, disappointing performance from Weyerbacher

Draft - Weyerbacher (Fresh Batch). Gold, creamy white head. Spicy fruit-like aromas warm to hints of peppered bread. Earthy fruit cream flavors balance on nutty wheat and pepper-like tones. Medium bodied, medium carbonation , light fruity finish. Always passed this up due to the low scores, but now will seek this batch out for those summer grilling days and nights. Refreshing and summery...

A hazy amber ale with a thick off white head. A pleasant rising bread aroma, yeast, light vanilla and cream, herbal notes. In mouth, light farmhouse ale with gin alcohol, grainy notes. Tasted April 25 2009.

Dont recommend. Pours amber with no head. Smells of funky feet and rotten apples. Tastes of rotten spicy apple cider. No carbonation. Steer clear.

Pale orange yellow color around the sides which fades to a deep brown in the middle. Light tan head on top. Not very much on the nose. Some sweet fruity funk. Touch of vinegar and grass. Bitter flavor with notes of apple. Hoppy finish. Not great. Very lifeless and watery.
