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.
