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

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I guess it’s a semi valiant effort at a saison. I can tell from the various aspects what they’re trying to do, but just barely. Considering the brewery’s history, I can imagine that this is an effort to make beer that is just good enough in the least expensive way - and it seems that way. Whether it’s the aroma, the flavor, the appearance, body, or finish, they all have the suggestion of a saison, and nothing more. Not bad beer. Nor good.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours pretty much clear golden amber. Small fizzy semi creamy white head. Aroma is just indistinct sweetness, caramel and honey I guess, vague fruity.. Flavor has the same unappealing sweetness. Caramel, honey, little spicy, grass, little dryness in finish. Lighter Medium body. Little syrupy. Not good. Some ’farmhouse funk’ would have been welcome.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
malty, sweet, citrus, creamy aroma. taste is similar. Sweet, malty, a little yeast. definitely sweeter than I expected for a saison/farmhouse ale. A slight bitter finish.
A good beer, but personally doesn’t seem like a saison to me. But what do I know.
