Bellwoods Brewery-Farmhouse Ale

Next up from Bellwoods Brewery is their Farmhouse Ale, a cheeky little saison that weighs in at 6% alcohol. It arrived a cheery looking cloudy straw yellow colour, topped with a fluffy white head. Farmhouse Ale had a sour, yeasty aroma with a dose of citrus. The mouthfeel was noticeably dry and quite crisp. There is a slightly sour flavour with some considerable yeasty notes.

The Farmhouse Ale is excellent. It's tasty, refreshing, eminently drinkable and has an interesting flavour. Definitely a beer built for summer quaffing. Plus I love the idea of a quality saison coming out of Ontario. If you're at the Bellwoods Brewery and you're thirsty, you can't go wrong with the Farmhouse Ale.

Rating: 8.5 out of 10.
