Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: trxxpaxxs on 10-16-2013

This beer is dedicated to every notion of the small town feeling. The saison style was originally crafted by Belgian farm estates as a way for their workers to indulge in delicious beer without having to travel too far away. Taking its roots from the strong sense of community, our Belgian style saison represents all of the people and places that have influences on our brewery. Small Town is refreshingly approachable, yet so complex, just like those surrounding us. So to all those who change by not changing at all, let Small Town be a part of your fate.

Tastes like banana vomit. This is one of those beers better served warm. It's ok in the after taste but not the easiest to down a few.

my first beer from these guys is a hit, and another beer not getting the credit it deserves i dont think. i loved it, but maybe not as a traditional saison. sure there is some of the yeast there, for me white pepper and rock candy, but its not as raw and wild as some of the more traditional farmy ones, and honestly comes though a lot like a belgian pale at times during the flavor trip. its hoppy in a really cool way, and maybe thats what takes it a little further out of saison realm. hops are awesome in it, everything from citrus to melon to gummy bears i can taste in here, but its neither cloying or overly bitter, but rather balanced beautifully with the pils and wheat malt that make up the base. its layered in taste and fluffy in feel. i drank it sort of blind, not knowing what style it was supposed to be according to the brewer, and saison was not really the first though, i guess the more belgian type yeast let my mind wander a bit, but i liked this experience, and i love the fruity complexion of the beer. this deserves much more attention i think, and was a heck of a first impression from a brewery i didnt know existed until my first sip. very very cool stuff.
