Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
A traditional farmhouse ale made with a very expressive yeast strain that contributes an array of tropical fruit, spice flavors and aromatics. Brewed with a variety of harvest grains including barley, wheat, oats and rye as was likely the case with farmhouse brewers of yore. The result is a complex, refreshing and distinctive example of this esoteric style. Intensely fruity (passion fruit, pineapple, mango, lychee), slightly spicy (clove, white pepper).

Workers comp

A - hazy pale straw yellow. Tightly packed pearly white head of foam.

S - the nose is bright and fruity. Tart green apple, pears and juicy orange pulp. Hints of bananas as well. Faint notes of green herbs, black peppercorns on a base of crispy cereal.

T - dry, earthy and grainy on the tip of the tongue. Racy acidity lights up the palate. The juicy center reveals lively fruit esters found on the nose. Granny smith apples and prickly pears with a soft underlying citrus bitterness. Finish is soft and dry while the balancing bitterness lingers.

M - lighter side of medium body. Rounded and creamy feel. Tight bubbles from a medium carbonation.

O - an impressive beer from two roads. A very flavorful beer at a low abv. I will be looking for more by this brewery for sure.

Bottle picked up locally and enjoyed from a two roads snifter.
Bottle on 2/28

a - brew pours a transparent straw yellow with a thin fizzy head that fizzed away quickly.

s - nose is fairly classic to style. Grassy bubble gum.

t - taste follows suit and is a bit earthy to me at first but as I sip I get more of the bubblegum and sweetness. The flavor seems to toggle back and forth between these two experiences. Some soft white pepper or clove type notes round things out.

m - easy drinker a bit dry.

o - overall a very to style saison, that being said, not all that memorable. Not bad, not great. Good.

On-tap at Terroir Park Slope, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short but dense bright white head that died down but consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of peppery spices are present in the nose.
T: The taste has flavors of Belgian yeast and peppery spices, the latter of which linger through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The beer has some refreshing properties and seems like it would be a refreshing drink during the summer months.

Pours a pale straw color with some honey highlights. The pure white head is soapy, has good staying power and settles into a solid cap. Not much lacing.

The aroma is of musty clove, pepper and hay. Some tart apple notes.

The taste is of horse blanket, musty dusty clove, hay and grassy hops. Nice sour bite from the rye malt. Lemon and green apple tartness and other fruitiness. Quite complex for a lower abv brew.

The feel is light with prickly carbonation. Drinks crisp like a good saison should. Good balance between sweet, phenol, and bitter. Nice grassy bitterness in the end.

This is a very impressive saison and a low abv session sucker as well. I could drink these all day. Good complexity with the malt and yeast.
