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.

Bomber from Mitsuya’s Liquors. Poured into a snifter. Pours a hazy golden orange color with little to no head. Light lacing. First impression on the nose is a nice buttery chardonnay. Aromas of apple, pear, passion fruit and pepper. Sweet and peppery on the palate, but the sweetness is a little overbearing for the style. Slightly boozy as it warms up which is surprising for only 7%. Medium body with average carbonation and a peppery sweet finish. Not bad, just expecting a little more out of saison.

minihame2 (260) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 14, 2015
Light brown, yellowish colour. Not completely clear, lively with bubbles. Basically no head at all. Good aroma, fruit, banana and pineapple, yeast in the background. Taste is sweet at first, then turns into a little bit sour. Quite pleasant nevertheless. Soft mouthfeel, light and watery, minimal carbonation. Easy to drink, not too bad.

Strykzone (5384) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat with he in Idaho. I rolled my bottle loosening chunks of sediment. The beer is cloudy and kind of dingy gold. The aroma brings bananas, lemon merangue, and pineapple with soft pale malts. An interesting combination. Early sips bring pineapples and lemons with those malts that are powdery. This is near to style but also has a twist that is very much American. It lacks the earthiness and "naturaliness" to be truly authentic. I like the flavors it does bring and find it to be interesting. It is almost really good. In the end it just doesn’t stand out.

hayduke (3577) - Eureka, California, USA - JAN 10, 2015
This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. This 22-oz bottte poured clean gold with a bit fluffy white head and good lacing. Nose is pineapple, banana, cloves, and some yeast. Medium body and a smooth mouthfeel. The flavor is big and strong.with pineapple and and lemon, and the banana continues to show as it moves to a yeasty and citrus bitterness. This is a very nice beer. and exceptionally easy to drink. Well crafted

KyotoLefty (7335) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 26, 2014
Bottle at Imazato. Pale gold, thick low head. Spicy as hell, a bit sour, creamy, grainy. Sweet yeasty flavor, full body with peaches and orange. Don’t like this sweet, heavy, yeasty American saisons.

maekchu (2607) - 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 (997) - 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.

A bit of farmhouse. Citrus and pepper and wheat yeast. Lacy. Looks saison. Peppery finish.

Ferris (7014) - 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.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy blond color. Moderately spicy, quite sweet and mellow, simple cereally malt profile, a bit fruity. Ordinary bitterness. Like most American Saison.
