Pretty Things Field Mouse's Farewell

Tonight the stars have aligned. The Bruins are crushing the Canucks and now the series will be tied 2-2. My cold has also exited my face, allowing for beer reviews WAY sooner than I expected. Of course the cold has moved into my chest and now I have a cough similar to Doc Holiday.

Just as my fridge beer supply was dwindling, I realized I had a TON of beer in my china cabinet. DAMNIT! I think a bunch of it is from April, and now I’ll be in a rush to drink it. I reached for something that appeared to be non-age-worthy and ended up with this Pretty Things Field Mouse’s Farewell….a saison that is (correct me if I am mistake) actually BETTER if aged. #fail

I’m having a debate with the wife over the color of the Mouse. She says yellow. Bull plop. It’s light orange. Silly wives…

This Mouse is a complex one in flavors. The first thing that strikes me is a (strangely sweet) citrus with a ton of peppery twist. The beer is brewed with wheat and you can pick up those flavors also.

A really good example of a terrific saison while at the same time a unique beer.

  1. I’ve had a few beers from this brewery, but not this one and only at get-togethers when some other beer geek brought it. So never any for just me. LOL.

    But I do dig the artwork and the names and have enjoyed the flavors in the small shots I’ve had to drink. Basically what I’m saying is that they should start distribution down here in Florida.

  2. I don’t know that I’d say saisons get better with age. They can certainly age since they’re often higher in alcohol, but I wouldn’t purposely age one. This is one I wouldn’t purposely age.

    It is one of my favorites. I love the earthy flavors in it.

    Oh, and the color… amber. :)
