COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Farm Hand: French Style Farmhouse Ale 5.5% abv 16 oz Becher glass There was a time in old world France when nearly every family farm had a brewery. A necessary part of farm life was to provide a ration of beer to sustain and nourish the laborers and beer was safer to drink than the water of the time. Farmhand is our interpretation of what these rustic beers must have been like. It is slightly cloudy from being made with raw un-malted grains a nd a simple single infusion mash procedure.

16 oz can 11/7/14 (Payless Liquor #9-Indy)-Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, spices, and funk. Taste the same. This light bodied brew is well balanced and goes down easy.

10/10/2014: Vivant Farm Hand French Style Farmhouse Ale... Pours the color of hazy lemon juice, minimal white crown. Yeasty, funky aroma. Grassy, herbal, some wheatiness, and just a bit of bite in the finish. Medium-light, a bit thin at times, but quite good. I really like this beer because it’s unique; it’s not the typical bland so-so "farmhouse" beer. One pint can shared by Lance. Thanks!

can. pours very pale golden with a small white cap demonstrating very little retention and no lacing per say. lightly sour-ish small yellow and red fruits, some strawberries too, fresh wheat and its light acidity, hay, pepper, subtle flowery notes. lively to average carbonation, light body, very lightly tart and astringent grassy-herbal-citrusy finish. nice stuff!

Good. Belgian yeast flavor is solid. Only downside is it has a tartness that doesn’t work super well.

Nice looking beer, yellow and cloudy. Smell was slightly citrusy, tasted of funky yeast with a slight tardiness, very nice overall.

Draft at Vivant. Pours a hazy light yellow. Aroma and taste are citrus with some tartness in the end.

3.6
Barnoloid (386) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2014
This is a standby of mine. A lemony, tart, citrus forward farmhouse ale/saison style which pairs perfectly with food or on its’ own. Pours a deep orange with a small white head and a cloudiness that gives this a hazy quality on the eye. The nose is all lemon with a little hay. Does not veer into sour territory but stays lively enough to stay interesting. Nicely balanced carbonation and little bitterness.
