COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Farmhouse ales are less of a style and more of a loose branch on the beer family tree,  originating in the agrarian borderland shared by France and Belgium. When farm owners needed to provide nourishment and compensation to seasonal farm workers, beer was an obvious part of the package, since they were already growing many of the ingredients. The humble origins of these beers meant that they were brewed with whatever ingredients were on hand. This lack of convention has lead to a wide range of expressions of the style and even breweries that specialize in or brew saisons exclusively, like Oxbow in Maine and Fantome in Belgium. We’ve tweaked the recipe for  our Farmhouse Ale a little bit this year, adding a small amount of pineapple sage. The result is slightly amplified fruit character, that really adds to the flavor (but don’t be afraid that we’ve completely recreated the beer). Cheers!

Ungstrup (38152) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2006
An orange beer with a beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with light notes of fruit - especially oranges. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel and quite a lot of fruit, leading to a dry bitter end. Compared to the French farmhouse ales and Belgian Saisons, this is a very clean beer.
