COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A new and interesting take on our flagship Farm Girl Saison, we have infused this brew with locally sourced exclusive Chai tea blend while ageing in the cask. Notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and tea blend with the subtle Belgian flavors in a mellow dance.

Cask Pour at Groveland Tap in St. Paul. Straw colored and murky. Lots of holiday spice, pumpkin and custard, many of the same characteristics as the chi tea my wife loves. Fairly sweet, some belgian character, with a hint of metallic/copper/blood in the finish.

Pint, on handpump @ Muddy Pig. Pours a very murky and cloudy yellow gold body with a small frothy white head that faded to a thin ring rather quickly. The nose is actually pretty decent, lots of chai, but also plenty of Saison character as well. Some yeast, wheat, banana, vanilla, pale maltiness, some light spices. The flavor is just a bit too much of an overkill on the chai for me though. It really seemed to be more like the tea than a Saison. Really sweet with big spices and heavy doughy yeast mask any semblance of a Saison. The first sip I though was interesting, but it quickly got old. The handpump and thick fluffy yeast make for an interesting combo on the palate though. The breadiness really coated the mouth and it made the chai linger on forever. A bit rough to finish this one, I think I got down 3/4ths of a pint though.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2009 ABR, 2009 on draught. Opaque gold color. Aroma of warm chai and light coffee. Cinnamon, nutmeg is there for sure. A little sweet, some gingerbread. Much more interesting than Farm Girl. I think this is better classified as a spiced beer, as it has none of the qualities common to a saison.

On draught during the Autumn Brew Review 2009 in Minneapolis, MN. Pours a hazy straw and gold colored saison with a decent white head that has some nice retention and lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, a hint of banana, white bread, lemon zest, pineapple with a hint of clove. Taste is medium bodied, with the same profile as its aroma but with a distinct gingerbread flavor that really stands out. Finish is semi-sweet with some lemon and ginger aftertaste that slowly disappears. I lIke this one a little better than the regular Farm Girl Saison.
