The Other Farm Saisonner

Posted: June 2, 2016 in Reviews, Saison/Farmhouse Ale, The Other Farm Brewing Company

This was the other beer that we ordered at the brewery. I thought it would be interesting since it used apples in it. The system in the brewery was quite small and I was surprised at the number of offerings that they had. The bar itself was pretty. It looked like a large piece of reclaimed wood. We’re thinking of doing something similar for over our fireplace,


ABV: 5.7%

Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “This lightly hopped farmhouse styled Saison is crisp yet malted for a slightly off-dry finish. The name aptly refers to ‘having a good season of fruit’, as this Saison forms the base of various seasonal whole fruit infused ales straight from the Orchards.”

Random: Whenever I work from home, the kittens spend most of their time in the office with me.

This brew poured with a one finger, white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy orange with no visible carbonation because of the cloudiness. On the nose, I picked up significant tartness and apple juice. There was some breadiness from yeast. The taste was intensely tart from the style, but old, musty apple juice came next. It was nowhere close to balancing out the tartness. There was a cracker note from the yeast at the end. The body was also quite thin with high carbonation. It had a quick, tart, lemony finish. I really did not enjoy this beer. It needed some more sweetness from the apples to balance this.

Untappd Rating: 3.0/5.0
