Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Gambrinus1184 on 12-23-2012

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).

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #79 (Aug 2013):

Very complex for its size, perhaps one of the most complex session ales we’ve run into this year. Very much a Saison, and a super drinkable one at that. Two Roads seems to be hitting all of the right marks; highly recommended.

STYLE: Saison / Farmhouse Ale
ABV: 4.8%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Brilliant golden color, amazing showing of lace

SMELL: Clean graininess, medicinal phenols, faint mango, walnuts, herbal, stone fruit

TASTE: Perfect crispness, moderate-size body, mildly grassy, spicy, herbal, mild bubble gum, persimmons, crackers, lemongrass, peppercorns, faint alcohol, drying finish

12 oz. bottle into a tulip.

a: Nice one and a half finger bubbly white head that unfortunately didn't stick around. Nice honey color.

s: Orange and grapefruit, coriander and yeast...a bit of grain. Like rye.

t: Slight sweetness like pineapple, cloves, pepper, wheat, citrusy finish.

mf: Light body and carbonation. Nice and dry.

o: Different from what I consider a saison but I am far from an expert. Either way, it is a nice beer.

Two Roads Worker's Comp Saison
12 oz. brown bottle
Bottled 12/05/14
Served in a 20 oz glass

I was in Connecticut today and picked up two six packs of Two Roads. The Worker's Comp Saison pours a hazy yellow with a bleached colored white head that turns to a circle.

Nice aroma of spices and fermented fruits.

Each sip if fruity with hints of peaches and mango. The beer has that distinctive Belgian yeast flare associated with this style. There is also a black pepper bite and dry chalk quality on the finish. This is a very thirst quenching and drinkable offering. A nice beer that I will need to revisit in the warmer weather.

12oz. bottle served in a tulip. Bottled 082614 printed on the bottle. Pours a hazy honey blond with a two inch, bright white cap that sizzles and pops and quickly settles into a soapy slick that coalesces around the shoulders. Nose is somewhat reminiscent of a witbier - citrus, clove, coriander and yeast. Taste consistent with nose; however a bit dull and muted. There's also a pleasant lemony presence towards the finish. Mouthfeel is light and lively with a mild, even astringency. Overall, a decent beer but not what I would consider a Saison. A pleasantly drinkable and refreshing summer beer in both character and abv; however, I'd rebrand this as a witbier.
