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.

pdx77 (1717) - Oregon, USA - JUL 17, 2013
On draught at 2013 Portland Cheers to Belgian Beers Fest. Light golden color. Coriander and yeast aroma, light hoppiness. Flavor is spiced banana, yeast. Fizzy.

DuffMan (10665) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 11, 2017
Bottle, shared with Parksy. Medium golden average white head. Sweet Arrowroot cookie malt base, light banana, vague ripe tropical fruits. A bit too sweet and "belgiany" for my preference in a saison.

Ernest (7820) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2017
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of candy sugar, candy corn, coriander, corn syrup. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, heavily alcoholic. I was blinded on this and surprised to find this was supposedly a saison. Huh? This just smells like a generic sugary-syrupy vaguely Belgian ale. Blah.

3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2017
From bottle it’s hazy gold with a short white head. Sharp French Saison yeast aroma, citrus, orange jam, banana chips, "peppery" but raw and seemingly artificial. Malt comes across a bit like cake frosting and angel food cake, kind of absent and neutral. In the mouth it’s bubbly and stark, tart and bitter and a little acidic, finishing somewhat alcoholic. Pretty meh.

From a 650ml brown bottle. Cloudy gold with a thin white head that fades out quickly. Nose - pineapple, lemon, yeast. Taste - yeast, hay, lemon, pineapple. Dry end, good carbonation. Nice.

At first I didn’t like the taste. I felt it was too strong. Then I remembered what I bought and started to appreciate it as a sasion. I gotta give it up to Worthy. They don’t play around in Bend.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2016
Bottle:   Dirty straw, thin off-white head, no lacing.   Somewhat of a pale skinned fruity nose, faint musty breadiness.   Similar on the tongue.   More fruity than most, lacks carbonation tho.   A bit bready on the backside.   Not as musty as the nost suggested.   Moderate body and mouthfeel, but yeah, needs more carbonation.

Worthy Brewing has brewed a nice smooth easy drinking saison. Pours a nice light golden color has good lacing would recommend.

Bomber. Clear bright golden yellow, mostly lasting finer white foam. Aroma of tropical fruit, yeast, citrus. Taste is juicy tropical fruity, pineapple stands out, yeasty, lean pils malt, some spice, faintly floral. Softer carbonation, light-medium bodied, lightly hopped. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 17, 2016
Bottle shared at the 2015 edition of the chriso Pre-GBBF tasting - London. Cheers! Pours hazy yellow with a creamy, white head. Strong Belgian yeast in the nose, with touches of ripening citrus fruits and dank, damp hay. Medium sweet flavour, a little sugary, with doughy bread, yeast and honey. Medium bodied with average, massaging carbonation. Sweet on the finish with more doughy wheat bread, yeast, light candi sugar, ripe lemon. An interesting saison. Not bad overall.
