COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Costa dei Villa is a hoppy session saison that was brewed in collaboration with our friend Costa from La Sirène. These self-proclaimed ‘Farmhouse Free Stylers’ from the Land Down Under are creating amazing Farmhouse beers with finesse, texture, and above all crisp drinkability.

This hoppy session saison was brewed with four different hop varieties giving aromas of citrus, kumquat, and soft wheat. Costa dei Villa is extremely quaffable, with a light tart body, and mild bitterness. Refreshing notes of grapefruit pith, a touch of Meyer lemon, and Jolly funk. The perfect beer for gathering the cobbers and sparking up the barbie!

Come to my world mate!

I’m going to finish my degree in marine biology and we’re moving to Australia
I told my wife to be
Well, that didn’t happen, I ended up a brewer
But not quite one of total ill repute.
One Sunday in May Costa showed up at my brewery
Later, we brewed a beer together
Come to my world, mate, says he
We haven’t quite yet
But we will.
Cheers & Mahalo plenty!
Ron Jeffries, Founder and Chief Squeegee Operator

Ungstrup (41288) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 15, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2019 Draft. An unclear yellow beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of hops, straw, peaches, and citrus fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, malt, straw, and citrus fruits, leading to a bitter finish.

3.4
joergen (31743) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 12, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2019 Draught at Taphouse. Hazy golden coloured with a medium sized white head. Fruity aroma of barnyard, hops and brett with notes of flowers. Fruity flavour of barnyard, brett, hops and apples. Fruity finish.

Muggus69 (3092) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2018
UPDATED: DEC 20, 2018 750mL bottle from Bucket Boys 4.6% Pours a decent size creamy head atop a hazy straw body. Not a huge amount of aroma - grainy, bready malt, touch of lemon/grapefruit, slightly herbal & peppery phenolic spice, faint green oak. Quite light on the body, reasonably well carbonated, dryish, slight citrusy twang. Delicate sort of beer overall - subtle light/pilsner biscuity malt, pale citrus rind, Saison-esque white pepper & clove phenolics, almost dusty, dried herbs, hay, hints of hard cheese & oaken spice. Subtly tannic & tart - all well checked & balanced. Very elegant; realising the origins of this brew - it all makes sense.

gyllenbock (11376) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 28, 2018
Sample at SBWF 2018. Hazy golden with a small white head. Tart with brett, lemon, funk and some light malt. The body was light as was the bitterness.

Hermod (10466) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 27, 2018
Bottle @ sbwf 2018. Poured light golden color. Thick white head. Nice tart, lime and citrusy notes. Funky, barnyard nose. Apricotty, citric, tart flavor, long finish, lovely brew.

omhper (28001) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2018
Bottled at Stockholm Beer Festival. Hazy golden, mid sized head. Tart nose with brett, hay and minerals. Tart with light-medium body and crisp, rounded mouthfeel. Minerally with hay and lemon. Low bitterness. Relaxed, complex and excellent.

3.9
nuplastikk (6964) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2018
On tap and in a growler from JP Chicago. Thick, yellow-tan body. Foamy white head. Hoppy, bitter, dry, bright. Lemon tones, Some mellow Jolly Pumpkin funk. Not really hitting a traditional Saison, or new school Grisestte feel either, something different. Medium bodied, very drinkable. Lots of grassy, dry hop...not really so much dimension in that regard as much as mouth texture. India Pale Grisette?
