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.

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.

BustedFlat (554) - Edina, Minnesota, USA - MAR 14, 2009
On tap at Old Chicago in Roseville, MN. Cloudy golden with a fairly thick head. Aroma of light spice and yeast. Taste was subtle. Lightly spiced with some clove and yeast. Drinks much life a hefeweizen, but for the touch of dryness.

Guerde (1168) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 13, 2009
(on tap, served way too cold) Poured hazy light gold with a thin white head. Aroma is predominately orange peel, coriander, and a decent hit of bready yeast as well. Further warming intensifies these aromas, and a light hint of funk is revealed. The taste is standard saison fare, with coriander, more orange zest, with an underlying sweetness giving way to a pleasant cracker-like finish. All in all, this was quite good, and it would serve well as a sessionable beer in the warmer summer months.

BVery (6301) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - JAN 20, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 TAP: slightly hazy gold pour, thin body, bubblegum aroma, with a yeast and clove taste. Solid saison.

Nuffield (3671) - 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. Didnít 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.
