COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This pale golder, Belgian-influenced ale is for everyone: Farm Girl, wannabe Farm Girl. In the Belgian Farmhouse tradition, this brew has a dry malt finish and a spicyness that only Belgian yeasts can create. Smooth and well rounded... this one can please anyone in any situation, whether you are on the water, in the sun, or hiding from winter’s chill.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 TAP: slightly hazy gold pour, thin body, bubblegum aroma, with a yeast and clove taste. Solid saison.

Nuffield (3665) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 18, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 8, 2009 I thought this was a good effort. Very bright saison flavors--not a subtle, complex one, but big citrus and spice. Very drinkable, with a moderate palate of tingle and smoothness. Perhaps a more American style take on the Saison, not having the flavor punch of the European ones. Good beer, worth drinking. (On tap at Stub and Herbs, Minneapolis, MN) 8-3-7-4-15: 3.7 // Re-rated on June 8, 2009 at Blue Door Pub, St. Paul. Didn’t have the shine of the citrus and spice, felt a bit thin, but still basically enjoyable. 7-3-7-4-14:3.5

Autumn Brew Review 2008. Gold color with a thin head. Light bubblegum aroma, coupled with a lot of fresh cut grass. Very lightly tart malt taste up front, followed by lots of wheat, yeast and an almost herbal spice. This is a killer saison.

ABR 2008. Aroma of citrus, spices, sugar. Nice sweet flavor, finishes a little bit dry.

stankenk (130) - Maplewood, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2008
ABR ’08 - Pours a blonde with a slow dissolving white head. The nose of yeast, a touch of bananas, some light cloves, and subtle notes of white bread malt. Comes across the palate light to medium bodied with some carbonation with flavors of dry white bread malt, bananas, a hint of bubblegum, and dry herbs. Finish is semi-dry with a fast disappearing herbal spice aftertaste.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 27, 2008
On draught at the Stub and Herb’s in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Pours a semi-clear golden straw blonde brew with a slow dissolving white head that leaves behind a nice spotty lacing and a thin white ring. Aroma of yeast, a touch of banana esters, some light cloves, and a hint of white bread malt. Taste is light to medium bodied with some carbonation with flavors of dry white bread malt, banana esters, cloves a touch of bubblegum, and dry herbs. Finish is semi-dry with a fast disappearing herbal spice aftertaste. Remember to allow this saison to come up to room temperature to get the full flavor and aroma.

incutrav (577) - Woodbury, Minnesota, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Straw yellow color. Smells much like a traditional Hefe, I get a lot of banana with some bread/wheat in there. Light and crisp, sligtly sweet. Not much in the way of spice that typical saisons have, but a very tasty offering none the less.

Syd (920) - Waconia, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2008
Tap at Mad Capper in Stillwater. Tall and skinny mug appears straw color and slightly hazed with a small head that laces. The aroma was somewhat wheat like and spiced. The flavor was mostly wheaty and white pepper with a medium body. Overall, this is pretty good.

JK (4376) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 Tap and Stub & Herbs. This is a mid-grade saison. Certainly not comparable to something from Fantome or Blaugies, but for a new brewery in Minnesota, not bad at all. The cloudy color is right, but no sediment. The aroma has yeast, cloves, some citrus, along with the flavor that is more of the same but also includes some sugar. Medium palate. Lightly spiced. Some wheat. A decent first try. It needs more intense flavor.
