COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Spicy aroma and a nice color and foam. Easy to drink, just a slight hop and spice aftertaste.

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

355ml twist off. Golden pour, somewhat creamy head. Smell is minhas assmalt soda. Flavor is spices, booze, just overal harshness. Does not resemble a saison.

Ew. Not really a Saison. Kind if stinky, rotty tasting. Would Not have again.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 25, 2014
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.

dekester1 (336) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 16, 2014
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.

BrewHaMeister (227) - - AUG 29, 2014
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.

Headbanger (3491) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2014
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.

DrSilverworm (7958) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2014
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.

MaltOne (257) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2014
Pours slightly hazy butterscotch gold with brief frothy white head. Nice malty aroma with a hint citrus, slightly musty. Flavors of ginger with orange peel on medium malt frame. Palate is lightly chewy. Overall very nice, a lot of finesse and subtly without getting heavy, refreshing.

b3shine (6238) - Indiana, USA - APR 3, 2014
Bottle to snifter (shared by DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a transparent golden orange with thin white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid too; honey with some notes of yeast. Tastes like it smells, but less complex. Average on the palate. A bit sweet and syrupy for the style, but decent nonetheless.
