COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Back inda day in the French speaking region of Belgium known as Wallonia, in the spirit of waving goodbye to the Winter and saying hello to the Spring, forward thinking brewers concocted a beer that was designed to reward the farm hands for a job well done with a light and refreshing malted beverage known as the “saison.”

At Worthy, as we also mark the onset of Spring, and christen our own version of a hop farm, and pay tribute to The People’s Hopmeister, Dr. Al Haunold, we are pleased to offer our own version the sasion, a fruity-zesty beer we call the Farm Out Saison.

True to style, we use Belgian pilsner malt, Saazer-inspired Sterling hops, and a fruity French-Belgian yeast strain that coalesce to form a delicious goldenrod/apricot- colored ale. Fittingly, Dr. Haunold was the brawn and the brains behind the creation of the Sterling hop, which the USDA released in 1998. Al, this Farm Out’s for you!

One whiff of our Farm Out and you’ll find yourself uncaging and uncorking a Belgian ale, redolent with deep yellow fruity esters. The aroma ranges from freshly cut pineapple to lemon citrus, with a pleasant ethanol overtone.

One sip and you’re enjoying a stone fruit marmelade on top of a soft thin slice of toast that finishes with a tart “Sourpatch” tanginess. Light, dry and spritzy.

So, raise your Belgian snifter and please join us as we give thanks to hop breeder extraordinaire, Al Haunold, and to hop farmers the world over. We love your work. And after a hard day’s work, when it’s time to let go, go ahead and tune out with Worthy’s Farm Out saison.

maekchu (2291) - Hirakata, JAPAN - DEC 23, 2014
Bottle from Sugaya. Apple nose, with some citrus, substantial caramel, gentle spice, and yeast. Quite farmy. Light hazy golden/amber color, thin head. Sweetened citrus juice initial, peachy and wheaty. Some tangy and peppery notes in mid and final. Thin-medium body. Pleasant, but unsubtle, really. A bit sweet for a saison. Nice enough, though.

cmonster (983) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottled. Aromatic grain with esters and light bubblegum on the nose. Light-sweet flavor. This is your typical American saison. Well-made, but nothing stands out. No funk. On a hugely positive note, they were selling this to go at the brewery for $3 a bomber.

Sammy (8942) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
A bit of farmhouse. Citrus and pepper and wheat yeast. Lacy. Looks saison. Peppery finish.

Ferris (5002) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
Draft - Lemon, pale malt and pineapple. Hazy yellow with a thin white head. Sweet pineapple, fruity esters, light lemon and a sweet finish. I love pineapple and therefore love this, but very juice like and sweet. Finish has some yeasty notes and mellow bitterness.

mcberko (7230) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a clear golden blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out farmhouse notes, Belgian yeast, and light crackery malt. Flavour is a little buttery, with notes of Belgian yeast and cereal malt. A little too buttery but still decent.

Reid (1946) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 2, 2014
22 oz bottle bought from Fred Meyers N.Salem store. $4.99 pours a clear golden yellow colour with a nice thick bubbly white head. Spicy,bubblegum, ginger and slight barnyard aromas..nice enough. Good balanced taste with still the spice and barnyard present. Some green apple in the back. Palate is good but needs a bit more carbonation for style. OK beer..i liked it.

Bottle from Brewfest. Clear golden with white ring and a little lace. Spice mild lemon pastry and some grassy aroma. Medium sweet fruity tropical fruit mango pineapple with mild spicy bitterness with lingering tropical fruit sweetness. Lively carbo and medium body. Could be a little lighter and less sweet, but still very good.
