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.

Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with very little white head on top. The aroma picked up a hefty dose of coriander, orange zest, and earthy spices over pale malts.. smelled dry, and was perhaps too assertive. The flavor found a little honey to join pale malts at the core.. again strong and spicy on the edges with tart orange zest and wheat leading.. coriander and white pepper as well.. long finish with tacky malts and spices. Light-medium bodied and a bit rough on the palate.. overall this was OK.

Bottle from theisti by way of theiske. Aroma is soapy fruit with some earth tones and light citrus and herbs. Taste is wet earth and some malty lemon peel upfront, pretty decent. Finish falls a part and gets kind of muddy and sweet as it comes to temp. Even a little astringent alcohol on the back, unexpected for the style in general and the abv of this one in particular. All in all, decent, but certainly there are better saisons out there. Thanks again, Tim.

Where the Wild Beers Are at The Gate 8/30/09. Very pale yellow with head. Perfumy soapy grapefruit aroma. Pineapple coconut sweet marshmallow with fairly dry herbal finish. Decent.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Bottle at WTWBA. Cloudy, pineapple yellow pour. Horsey and peanuty flavor, with husky wheat notes. Ratty, horsey, grainy flavor, mostly sweet with a little bit of wort. Blech.

riversideAK (5591) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Lightly sweet, some straw, spice, banana, and light cereal malt notes. Hazy yellow, nice head. Wheat, cereal, grain, some orange, very carbonated. Very uninteresting.

12 oz. bottle acquired via trade with tennisjoel. Pale yellow pour with a thick, frothy white head. Aroma of leather, sweat, and yeast. Actually the aroma is similar to walking into a woman’s hair salon. Flavor is light and satisfying with notes of lemon and orange along with some bread. Not bad.

Trev (1893) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2009
pours hazy gold with a medium foamy white head. Aroma is grainy/corny malt, some yeasty tones, some kind of vegetable thing going on. Maybe the corn mixed with the herbal hop...? lemony citrus as well as some herbal hop tones. Flavour is earthy herbal -hay hop over light grainy and biscuity malt. Some lemony tones in the finish.

Thanks for the bottle Tim. 12oz bottle served in a Bells snifter a few minutes out of the fridge. Subtle lightly toasted malt, light fruits and some pepper in the aroma. Light golden color with a smallish head and active carbonation. Cracker-like malt character, slight herbal and floral hops and some light fruit and a white pepper spiciness at the finish. Easy to drink, but somewhat reserved.

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. I’m afraid I’ve been duped by Steven’s Point again. I was hoping for a unique Minnesota perspective on Saison. Instead, I get "Brewed & Bottled by Lift Bridge Beer Co., Steven’s Point, WI." This finishes on a nice light stonefruit character, but it’s 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.
