Westbrook Bearded Farmer 3: Thomas
Westbrook Bearded Farmer 3: Thomas is a Saison/Farmhouse Ale brewed with pilsner and Munich malts, hopped with Zealand Wakatu, Motueka, and Pacific Germ hops. Fermented with a single French saison yeast strain. Bottled on 5/18/13, consumed fresh less than 2 months from bottle date. Oh my! This is one outstanding Sasion. The yeast and funk are in your face to start. It takes a while for my palate to adjust to the funk, but then some interesting flavors emerge. Very peppery with a good bit of citrus (orange stands out) and some generic tropical fruit flavors. The beer finishes lgiht, sweet and fruity. Fantastic!
