3.56/5  rDev -11.9%

Best by 11/2015

Pours a clear, pale golden orange color with visible carbonation bubbling up and a 2.5 finger frothy white head that very slowly settles into a lasting ring. Looks a bit over carbonated but has good retention with streaks of soapy lace left behind.

Earthy, musty aroma with a strong farmhouse funk character along with zesty spice, bread-y yeast, light fruit and citrus. Grass, straw and barnyard followed by pepper, bread, apple, pear, citrus rind and pale malt. Slightly floral/perfume-like with a touch of grassy saaz hops as well with some mango and papaya countering the funky/earthy saison notes. Inviting aroma that smells true to style, unlike the Bretta version which is kind of a disaster.

On the fuller end of medium bodied with tight carbonation and a strong earthy farmhouse flavor up front that lingers over the subtle hops, peppery spice, light fruit and pale malts into a dry finish. A bit over carbonated with champagne-like effervescence. Slight resinous, grassy hops compliment the farmhouse yeast giving off a dry, slightly funky and bitter flavor that's countered by spicy pepper/coriander, biscuit and sweeter fruit notes toward the finish, notably apple, pear and light grapes. Subtle booziness but the ABV is decently concealed making this beer pretty easy to drink. Overall, I enjoyed this beer much more than the Bretta version but it didn't really stand out as a particularly interesting interpretation of the style. I'm glad to have tried it but wouldn't seek it out again.

A: hazy, pale golden with a great 1 inch white fluffy head. Great retention and lacing. Can't ask for a better looking Saison.

S: Doesn't have a strong smell but I definitely get all the smells related toa saison. Pepper, orange rind, lemon, hay, and the barnyard funky characteristics. It has a crisp and honey aromas as well. Can't ask for a better smelling Saison.

T: Everything from the nose. Very round and full flavored. Got some honey and pineapple. Not as dry as I thought. More on the sweet side, fruity if I had to use a word. Finally I got why it is so fruity. The pear juice makes much complex and more interesting. Like it.

M: Goes down pretty nice. Leaves a little dry sensationbut the finish is long and fruity. I know, it's ironic but the back of my palate feels dry but the rest of my mouth has the lingering sweetness.

O: Great job by Longsdon. It's a greatly done beer. It is probably a little too sweet for the style but I must say I loved it. Woudn't hesitate to order it again. Refreshing and delicious. A must try.

Bottle (2012)

The Bruery Provisions
Orange, CA

Hazed, yellow and golden with a moderately sized off-white head that leaves spiderwebs of gorgeous lace all the way down the glass.

Complete and appropriate aroma of earth, hay, grass, a hint of musty barnyard, and a bit of fruit.

The flavor is similar, and incredibly drinkable. Earthy, barnyard flavors complement hay, grass, earth, and a bit of black pepper.

Medium bodied with high carbonation. Incredibly drinkable and very well crafted.

I love this beer, though I slightly prefer the version with Brett.

Bottle No S7794; best before January, 2015. Poured from a waxed-and-capped 750mL bottle into my Troubadour tulip.

Golden Munsell yellow body, thoroughly cloudy with a creamy antique white finger of foam up top. Pasty sticky lacing; good retention.

Aromatics are pure and alternately sweet and spicy with a mixture of yeast, malt, and pear (no fruity esters or peppery phenols). Faint spiciness and floral notes add further balance and interest.

Potent palate entry is tart with pear and yeast along with grassy hops and hints of white pepper in the finish. Slightly funky and a touch muddled (though still well balanced) over-all, but the flavors are each strong and enjoyable. I imagine this will age very well as the flavors continue to evolve and integrate.

Effervescent, soft, medium-full mouthfeel, though still refreshing from the tartness.

An excellent and unique example of the style - will have to revisit this after a year in the cellar. Very nice to see another producer of farmhouse ales in Oregon - one of my favorite types of ale - looking forward to trying their kriek when it comes to fruition (pardon the pun).
