Bringing down the Farmhouse! Our interpretation of the rustic Wallonian Saison style is a harmonious blend of rustic grains, spicy yeast and unique sauvignon blanc tones. Inviting lemon grass and gooseberry meet peppery spice and fresh grain aromas. Spicy Belgian yeast create a complex yet dry and refreshing canvas with splashes of citrus and stone fruit with a bright tropical white wine finish. Hop bitterness is assertive yet harmonious rounding out slightly tart and refreshing. REMEMBER: Watch for bottled on dates located on the necks or bottom left corner of the label for each of our beers. Our beer is not pasteurized, so it is best when stored at 44F or below, out of light and within 120 days of the bottled on date...this ensures freshness and ultimately a great Firestone Walker beer!

    Bomber from Haggen (Burlington, WA). Light gold pour, almost champagne-like, with a whitish head. Grassy, fresh aroma, with some yeast notes. Smooth mouthfeel. Light fruity flavour, with some spices and yeast. Peppery finish. Very well done.

    I was blown away earlier this year by the lower abv (but wine BA) lil opal, so i went into this with very high expectations. It did not disappoint. Lightly rustic farmhouse character that comes out more and more as it warms. Somewhat assertive yeast strain does battle with the bright sunshiney hops. I thought 50 ibu may be too low, but damn this was a near perfect saison. I actually loved the body, but maybe...just maybe...6% would have been just right. A steal at $6.
