COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Farmhouse Ales were brewed for the diligent farmhands who drew the short straw and had to work the arduous harvest. Our brewmaster’s expression blends the spiciness of a Farmhouse Ale with the tartness of a Flanders Red for a remarkably refreshing finish. Malts: Caramel Malt Pale Malt, European Abbey Malt, European Acidulated Malt, Chocolate Malt, Malted White Wheat Hops: Spalt Select, Czech Saaz Our Twist: White Pepper, Coriander, Hibiscus

Formerly know as "Farmhouse Red Ale"

12 ounce bottle. Red orange and clear. Fizzy mouthfeel, medium bodied. Sweet tea, strawberry and grainy. Overall, it has a medicinal character.

Strangebrewer (794) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
bottle. Poured clear amber-pink with a thin white head. Light and sweet grainy aroma. Light crisp mouth feel. Flavour of pale malt with a wheat character, a fruity berry note with some pepper.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Pours a medium amber with a very, very slight hint of red. Decent head at first fades fast and hard. Utterly clear. Aroma is vaguely fruity and a bit of caramel sweetness. Flavor is caramel malts with an almost bizarre, yet unmistakable, note of Kool Aid fruit punch. While not horrible, certainly not great either.

Splunge (1) - - DEC 21, 2013 does not count
Clear copper colored beer pours with a thin head that stays thin and is polite enough to lace the glass, but slide down quickly. No obvious carbonation unless disturbed. Shy smell of spicy yeast, pepper and flowery hop/coriander. Sweet understated caramel malt taste with coriander/pepper and medium mouth feel, ending with a gentle note of lactic sourness. Not a great example of farmhouse ale, but an almost unbelievable example of an attempt by a large commercial brewer to make something halfway interesting. I would like to shake the hand of the brewmaster who walked this tightrope.

Pershing (462) - Garland, Texas, USA - DEC 19, 2013
pours clear red into a goblet. white fizzy head that quickly disappears. Not much visual carbonation. Aroma of yeast and a little spice. Slightly tart taste with a light body. I could hardly finish it. Not good at all. You would think with all of their resources and 150 years of brewing experience they could produce a beer that would just blow every other beer in that category away.

firemarshal (106) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2013
I drew the short straw by tasting this. Cinnamon, spices, clove, and nutmeg collide to make this undrinkable for me.

lawman834 (210) - Georgia, USA - DEC 12, 2013
No head, reddish copper. Tomato, pepper, carrot. If it sounds like I am describing a V8, well, it kinda tastes like one. I never end up liking Blue Moon stuff.

Has a weird almost tart aftertaste. Ok for a red; not great overall. Probably won't buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
