BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Two Roads Brewing Company
Connecticut, United States
tworoadsbrewing.com

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.80%

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).

Bottle from a Lazy Dog
Slightly hazy straw color with a smallish but short lived bubbly white head. Spicy yeast esters, light sweet bread faint earthy hops and a touch of funk. Light bits of citrus round this out. Pretty drinkable, not my favorite saison by any means but fairly well made.

Bottled on 02/03/2016. Sampled on February 20, 2016. 17 days fresh.

There is a slightly foggy yellow pour with a modest white foamy head.

Loads of aromatic character including Belgian yeast, toasted barley grain, tropical fruit, and mild spice.

Medium body.

The taste definitely starts out with a toasted grain character but then the tropical fruit steps in and then it ends with a slight spicy bite at the end.

Poured from a 6 pack that had bottled on date 12/24/15 into a pint glass. Pours a straw yellow that is quite hazy looks like a lager very nearly. A one finger head with a little lacing. Smell is of, at first almost a Bavarian banana yeast like smell, then the peppercorn esque smell hits, and a mix of orange peel and maybe a hint of clove. The taste is mostly of the peppercorn clove mixture, but you can really taste the flavor the rye profile imparts. Mouth feel is a little thinner than some farmhouses I've had, but the carbonation is especially bubbly in this one. Overall a pretty drinkable beer something you'd take ice fishing, not something I'd go out of my way to get like some of the farmhouses at Oxbow here in ME. 3.65/5

12 oz bottle, BTLD 10/16/15.

Straw colored and hazy with a large fluffy white head. Big lemon citrus aroma with peppery spice. The flavor is all about the citrus and spice as well. Dry and bitter finish. Medium-light bodied and a bit on the thin/watery side, which is really unfortunate. It is refreshing, but I would have liked a little more body and complexity.

I really like what I've had from Two Roads so far. But this one wasn't on par with some of their better offerings. Still, a very inoffensive beer, just on the light end of how I like my saisons.

Light lemony yellow in a tulip glass, short fizzy looking head.

Smells mostly of belgian yeast, tart, peppery?

Getting a taste of belgian yeast, dry tartness, bit of citrus.

Great session beer.

Another pick up from Beer Noggin in Bronxville, NY...around the holidays...love the look...smells like spices...and fruit (very light though). Wish I had a few more when I was finished. Good feeling. Drank cold at 37 degrees.
