I got this as part of my Christmas gift from my brother. He went to the brewery one day after work and grabbed a few of their sampler packs. Mark and Julie were over early on a Saturday one weekend because we had this grand plan to make millions of meatballs for Italian wedding soup and Swedish meatballs. In the end, it took us 11 hours and I think we made enough meatballs for most of Europe.
While Mark and I were rolling meatballs, we enjoyed a regular beer (so regular I forget which one), but when it was lunch time, we decided to mix it up with something new. I grabbed the Belgian Ale and poured it out. It was a clear copper colour and smelled sweet and spicy. It tasted like a wheat beer or a light saison, but we’ve never had a saison so clear before.
It wasn’t until we checked in that we found out that it was indeed a farmhouse saison. At that point, we actually appreciated it more, I think. The filtering kinda threw us for a loop. It tasted like a light saison, and at 4.2%, it technically is. I think perhaps the filtering took a little bit of the edge off.
Great tasting beer. Hope it sticks around for a while.
