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.

Pours a cloudy orange/yellow with only about 1/8th inch of fizzy white foam. Nice and dry, crisp a bit of fruity sweetness. Finishes with some barn yard funk, hay/grass. Decent beer nicely balanced not over spiced. Biggest knock against it is that itís undercarbed for the style.

Unfiltered golden straw color with no lacing or head to speak of. The flavor is rather typical for a Saison with: cloves, banana, pepper, biscuit and barley with a very grassy flavor around it. It feels light in the body with a moderate amount of carbonation, but it feels very crisp on the palate, which I think is itís best feature. Overall, itís a rather an inoffensive yet boring Saison. If you want a good Saison ale, youíre better off with Ommegang Hennepin or Surly CynicAle

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Pours a nice hazy honey gold with a finger of egg shell head and abundant beading. On the nose itís a little spicy, some orange zest, lemon, clove. The taste is refreshing with all the expected saison qualities. I wish this was amped up a bit, both in booze and clove/ester/citrus. The feel is medium with a dry finish. Overall, a bit better than what other reviews suggest but still has its flaws. Perfectly drinkable though.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2011 Quite good actually. Very much like a belgian saison. I enjoyed this a lot.

XmnwildX12 (2078) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - APR 16, 2011
Has a very light wheat/bread scent, and pours a light golden color. Has a nice Belgian taste to it. Very drinkable and would be good in the summer.

JoeMcPhee (8819) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2011
Hazy, pale straw colour. Nose is softly spicy with a bit of orange peel as well. The palate is kind of odd with a bit of salty savoury character. Thin palate and very, very weird. It smells okay, but itís thin and oily at the same time. Kind of fishy tasting - nothing to recommend this one.

adnielsen (9920) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 22, 2011
On tap @ the Honey. Hazy yellow appearance with a white head. Yeasty, sweet, wild Belgian ale nose. Refreshing sweet, yeasty, slightly wild Belgian saison flavor.

Seriously why the hype? It is not tang, too clear, not enough flavor for a saison.

otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Appearance: hazy straw which start to clear up near the bottom as she settles in my glass. Little head to speak of, though a white collar clings tightly to the sides.
Nose: lemon, dough, and spice ohmy. Lemon bars with just a slight sugar dusting for sweetness while her otherwise tartness reigns. Softness to the nose which belies soft white breads while key lime and lemon grass tickle the back.
Palate: bright atop my tongue; lemon bars. Moves into soft doughy white breads with a hint of leather and spice in the finish. A solid yeasty chewy quality to the entirety of our session together. Lemon bars settle once more, this time upon the top of my tongue, lingering long after each quaff. An earthen leather funk is a gentle stream underneath, there but not dominant. Key lime teases in the very back.
Final Thoughts: overall, a dandy of a saison which is in and of itself a loose style with even looser interpretations. That being said, she was of the seasons and of the earth. Thanks sis for yet another tasty brew!

RobertDale (4027) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 3, 2010
12 ounce bottle. Pours a cloudy gold with a small white head. Aroma of spice, citrus and malt. Tastes of malt, bananas, yeast and corriander. Clean finish. Refreshing.
