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.

eruizgarcia (223) - - JUN 13, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2014 Light body with a mild malt and rose aroma. Pleasant, well balanced and refreshing. Good summer beer, just not as strong as great saisons, more like a better alternative to a summer lager.

Nsanders (567) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - NOV 23, 2014
Tap at Blue Door Pub. Hazy yellow. Yeast, under ripe bananas, bread and light clove. Taste is dry, with a yeasty aftertaste. Body is lighter with a fizzy, filmy feel.

Strangebrewer (901) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2014
bottle. Poured hazy straw coloured with a thin white head. Faint citrusy wheat aroma. Light body, prickly carbonation, dry finish. Flavour of light malt, yeasty with lemon citrus and a hint of spice.

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
Bottle, shared by Ferris. Bright hazy lemony yellow with a soft pillowy head. Strong aroma of marshmallow banana candies and bubblegum. Sweet profile, and I canít ignore the candyish character-- more like a sweetened Belgian witbier than a saison. Didnít care for it at all.

Bottle - Candy banana, grass and bubblegum. Hazy gold with a decent white head. Banana, grass and citrus. Sweet.

fiercepanda (595) - Missouri, USA - SEP 20, 2014
A hazy yellow beer with a small white head. The aroma is wheat snd intense Belgian funk. The flavor is clove, wheat, and yeast.

Lighter than I wouldíve expected, with a different spice profile, less pepper, more clove. Tasty, but not a saison.

orangesol (918) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle poured into my HOTD tulip glass.

A - Pours straw yellow with a decent one finger tall white head leaving small wisps of lacing down the glass.

S - Smells like a wheat beer to me. It has a few hints of apples, pears, and lemon but it is mostly just wheat.

T - Starts off with a big dose of chewy wheat slowly giving way to a mix of dulled fruits - similar to the nose - and a touch of light funk. Finish is pretty chewy, lingering for some time. Is this really a saison? Could have fooled me.

M - Light body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Chewy feel with a tiny bit of funk, lingering through the finish.

O - Meh, this was ok at best. It really didnít taste like a saison at all until it came completely to room temp. I wouldnít seek this one out.

HughConway (805) - Washington, USA - AUG 26, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours clear golden yellow, barely any head. Slightly sour yeast bread aroma, taste is clear and sour. Itís a bit thin to be a saison, but ok.

DrSilverworm (6955) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennanís in Madison during my stay for GTMW. Somewhat hazy golden color. Little white head. Leaves decent rows of lace. Banana flavor up front. Mild spice, belgian saison yeast. Medium body. Smooth, lightly soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Lightly spicy herbal taste. Light to moderate bitter. Lighter sweet, light tangy taste. Some orange citrus. Solid saison, pretty nice to enjoy with my sandwich.
