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.

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 it’s thin and oily at the same time. Kind of fishy tasting - nothing to recommend this one.

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 (3564) - 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.

douglas88 (6134) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 1, 2010
12 ounce bottle. Pours a mostly cloudy orange color with a medium white head. A spicy and citrus nose. A smooth citrus, sweet malts, and honey flavor. Yeasty and spicy. Easy to drink.

BlackForestCO (977) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Bottle(s) from tytoanderso, thanks Ty! Poured a lightly hazy golden-yellow color with a thin, fizzy white head that shrunk to a ring. Aroma of citrus (orange peel, tangerine), light banana, doughy yeast, a moderate spiciness (pepper and coriander), and some light herbal hops. Smooth, lightly tart entry with soft notes of orange and tangerine leads into a moderately sweet, doughy middle with some hints of spice (coriander) that linger into the lightly dry finish where they are paired with some light peach flavors. Moderate carbonation and somewhat spritzy mouth feel. Overall, it’s a solid attempt at a saison, but it lacks that earthy dryness that is present in traditional examples of the style. Still, it’s bad ass you can get it in six packs. Thanks again Ty.

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 1, 2010
Bottle via a trade with bu11zeye. Pours with a hazed golden-brown body and a small, fizzy white head that dissipates. Aroma of honey, pear, oxidation, biscuit, banana and fennel. Taste is pear, caramel, vanilla, earth, toffee. Very fruity and sweet for a saison. Cereal. Medium to lively bubbles. Not super dry. Okay saison at best. Better to think of it as a regular belgian ale, as it is not dry or estery (in the correct way) enough.

(12oz bottle) Pours a hazy pale yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of coriander, orange peel, wet grains, and herbs. Flavor of orange peel, coriander, lemon, crackers, and subtle clove.

(12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear yellow, film of white bubbles, excellent lace. Nose of grass, white pepper, rye, coriander, light spicy. Taste of white pepper, grass, spices, soft carb, creamy, semi-dry finish.
