A throwback to pre-prohibition ales, Drafty Window Farmhouse Ale embraces the spirit and craft of the prairie states, but with much of the “farmhouse funk” formulated out. With a focus on locally grown ingredients from the Midwest, this golden ale is complex, spicy and quaffable. Look for it at your favorite retailer or restaurant.

Oh gracious this is made at Minhas?

Pours golden & perfectly clear with a loose small head that falls fairly quickly.

The aroma is sort of spicy with some lavender and metallic characteristics.... overall it’s really not very aromatic.

The beer is lightly fruity with a mild minerallity. It’s pretty sweet and has a sort of sweet corn thing happening. The beer is spicy a little soapy... sort of tastes like apples. ugh.

The beer sits unnecessarily heavy on the palate but has a carbonation that provides a little liveliness. It leaves a real bad lingering sensation on the finish.

Everything about this is too sweet. Floral aroma, caramel and fruit flavors that are just too cloying before an overly sweet finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This pours an orange bodied brew with a scrawny bubbly head that’s little more than a film. It smells fruity, cherries with an apple slice, and has some burnt light brown sugar. It’s watery and the light flavor is mildly fruity with a soft earthy bitterness. The finish is watery. "Drafty Window" somehow fits.

Poured a clear copper color with a fine head and minimal lacing. Aroma was of prune-like sweet fruits/malt. Taste is similar with a sweet malty front end followed with a slight prune flavoring and a light hop bitterness finish. Palate is decent. Overall, an OK farm house ale.

12 oz bottle pours a hazy copper/amber with a small white head and this lacing. Not a big fan of this one. Funky sweet with a lingering metallic finish. First and last one of these.

12oz bottle 8/8/14 (Woodman’s-Waukesha Mix A Six)-42° in Tulip-Pours a hazy golden orange with a small white covering for a head. Aroma of yeast, funk, citrus, hops, spices, and grass. Taste of yeast, spices, hops, and slight malt. This light bodied brew is not bad but a bit mild for a Saison.

12oz bottle, thanks to Caterwaul. Shared with b3shine. Mostly clear golden orange color. Thin off-white ring of head. Loose bits of lace. Quickly fades to nothing. Some metallic mustiness in the nose; bread. Light caramel malt, some butterscotch. Hints of mango. Some honey. Weird. Kind of musty and metallic. Lightly spicy. More dry finish. Smooth, kind of crisp, kind of soft lighter carbonation. A bit slick. Moderate sweet taste. Light to moderate bitter. Sort of musty, funky. Bit of skunk. Odd, and not in a good farmhouse way. In a skunky, old-beer macro kind of way. Over-sweet, and a bit sticky. Not a fan.
