Saison / Farmhouse Ale |  4.80% ABV

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).

12oz stubby bottle
A) Pours with a finger thick head. Hazy straw colored body. Tight lacing at the edge of the glass and on the drink down.
S) Hints of clove, banana. Not overly aromatic.
T) Lemon. Subtle spices - Coriander, clove. Nutty, grainy finish.
M) Medium body. Creamy. Quite smooth.
O) A tasty saison. Very drinkable. I'd definitely have another one.

Had on tap at their tasting room

Appearance: minimal head, minimal carbonation, gold in color, clear

Smell: lemon, hay, and straw

Taste: lemon, hay, straw, honey, and light pepper at the end

Mouthfeel: light body, funky and sweet, moderate carbonation, semi-dry

Overall: I love the flavor combination here. Of all the Two Roads beers, this is my favorite. This one is nice, light, and complex. Amazing on draft and it still holds up well in the bottle. If I want a six pack saison, this is the beer I would go with.

This is the second Two Roads beer I've tried. For starters I have never been a big fan of Saison/Farmhouse Ales. But I continue to taste so I always have a broader knowledge base when I talk to our customers.

The beer poured clean with a substantial head. The bouquet brought me back to flashbacks of all Farmhouse ale's I've tasted. Spices were definitely present. First sip, yep Farmhouse.

But one thing I noticed over other Farmhouse Ales, I've tasted was a pronounced spice.
No question that it was coriander, very similar to what you will detect in American wheat beers.

I loved cilantro, but not a big fan of coriander.

There was nothing fundamentally wrong with this beer, its just something that when given a choice of different beers, it would not be the top of my list. (nor bottom)

A - Cloudy golden color. High white foam head with great retention. Minimal lacing.

S - Notes of banana, cloves, and a bit if bubblegum. Very similar to a Belgian style.

T - Crisp and refreshing saison. Some spice notes initially. Light grains and a mild hop presence make this a very clean tasting beer.

M - Easily sessionable and leaves a bit of a raspy grate on the tongue. Light body to the beer, and pairs well with just about anything.

O - Really good beer and one of the best saisons domestically.

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.

Twelve ounce bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours brilliant golden yellow with thick inch of white foam. Like a snow drift. Strong citrus yeast nose. Wheat too. Taste opens with a wall of citrus, tart, then drops off leaving some yeasty tasting remnants. Lemon stays on the tongue with some minor bittering. Extremely refreshing. Damn good saison, nice job by the new guys on the block in Stratford CT.

I was at the Two Road's opening event in Stratford a few weeks back to represent the Beer, Wine & Liquor store that I work at in Danbury, CT. The past few months I have been drinking more and more Saisons and I have found myself falling more in love with them each day. The Worker's Comp is easy to drink, not too high in alcohol content, full of taste, and in my opinion is a solid beer to release as a brewery emerging into the beer world.

It was discussed that night, and I agree that Two Roads brewery is going to help Connecticut get on the beer map, and hopefully they continue to have success, as well as, brew new styles of beer that will satisfy consumers all over.
