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.

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.

Bottle from a trade, canít remember who with at this point. Also, thought I had tried this already (and may have in fact), and almost gave this to someone as an extra before I checked, so hooray for discovering hidden gems in the cellar. Pours a very cloudy golden yellow with a medium sized creamy white head. Nice musk, a bit of banana, wheat, peppery. Medium bodied, lightly sweet, a bit more musky yeast. Finishes lightly, touch of sweetness, bit of fruit. Not bad.

arminjewell (9210) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Pours golden with white head, aroma is slight belgian spice and esters. Taste is light ester banana and spices with a slightly sweet middle that finishes dry and rather plain. Not bad flavors, just not many of them.

JoeMcPhee (9169) - 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.

DuffMan (8915) - 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.

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.

BMan1113VR (7914) - 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.

Ughsmash (7503) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 13, 2009
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.

Clear straw golden with a small white head, some lacing. Aroma of bananas and fruity esters. Taste of fruity esters and citrus
Decent
