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 winterís chill.

UPDATED: AUG 23, 2009 12oz Bottle. Flickr (http://www.flickr.com/photos/26049401@N08/3801 Flaccid wet corn comes first. A spritz of lemon juice and a crack of green pepper liven it up a little, but this is hauntingly familiar of that Horny Goat shit. Pours a hazed peachy golden, with an opalescent and shiny white rim. Flavor is less dreadful than the aroma, but not too much so. This tastes like a wet, soppy lager with a little soap and potpourri thrown in. A bit of yeast gumminess in the backend gives it some authenticity. Iím afraid Iíve been duped by Stevenís Point again. I was hoping for a unique Minnesota perspective on Saison. Instead, I get "Brewed & Bottled by Lift Bridge Beer Co., Stevenís Point, WI." This finishes on a nice light stonefruit character, but itís still nothing I can get too excited about. Ends with a fusel heavy, near-nail-polish volatile note.

12 oz twist off bottle purchased for me by my Dad at Zipps in Minneapolis, Minnesota, with an assist to tytoanderso. Brewed and bottled by Lift Bridge Beer Co, Stevens Point, Wisconsin - did Point brew / bottle this? Pour is hazed yellow slight pea green, two inch pure white head. Falls with no lacing. Aroma of soft bready malts, and citrus earthy yeastiness. Soft and inviting nose. Taste is grainy hay straw grass, earthy sweetness malt and the citrus flowery yeastiness. Maybe a bit sweeter than I normally like my Saisons. Finish is a little grassy dirty. Palate is medium, mouth coating with medium carbonation. As always, thanks for making these transactions smooth Tyler.

12oz bottle. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Malty and spicy, some lemon and citrus. More lemon and very smooth and drinkable, a bit peppery as well.

Thanks to tytoanderso for sending this. Pours a nice straw yellow with medium white head, minimal lacing. Aroma light on wheat, yeast, slight hops, and a bit of an earthy character. Flavor is pretty mild, but very refreshing and enjoyable.

Shaker pour @ moto-i. This has been one of the most disappointing beers I have had in a while. It is a piss macro-yellow with a thick head. It is way too clear and way too light of a color. Aroma is banana esters and overly sweet Belgian aspects. Especially for a beer like this, its too light to be this sweet. Taste is too sweet, the esters are too strong for the rest of the beer as well. It has a strong mineral feel and an overly tingly carbonation. I feel something good can be made with this beer but this isnít it right now.

On Cask. Light pour with a medium spicy yeasty aroma. Smooth and light fruit flavors accompanied the spiciness. Had a dry finish. Decent.
