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.

12 ounce bottle, poured a light yellow color, aroma is just awful, nothing good to note. Even though the aroma was horrible, the taste was nice. Sme light spice, hay and grass comes through, and a slight funky aftertaste. Over enjoyable beer for the Florida heat, thanks Alpar.

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.

12 oz bottle at Funky Five 2009. Pours a mostly hazy solid light gold with a foamy mostly lasting white head- some streaky lace. Aroma is mostly yeasty- too fresh or hasn’t settled or dissipated- but there is slight sulfur, but also grassy herbal notes, big wheat malts, toast, crackery a slight solvent or cleanser with warming biscuit and musty almost mold notes. Flavor is crackery and wheaty, with grass, herbs, spices, pepper (spicy wit yeast with lemon zest), raw fresh sulfurous yeast, doughy, phenolic moderate nice saison yeast character, slight salt and light mineral in the finish- seems unrefined overall, but the finish is fairly dry- ok for drinking but doesnt quite cut it as a good saison.

Autumn Brew Review 2008. Gold color with a thin head. Light bubblegum aroma, coupled with a lot of fresh cut grass. Very lightly tart malt taste up front, followed by lots of wheat, yeast and an almost herbal spice. This is a killer saison.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2009 I thought this was a good effort. Very bright saison flavors--not a subtle, complex one, but big citrus and spice. Very drinkable, with a moderate palate of tingle and smoothness. Perhaps a more American style take on the Saison, not having the flavor punch of the European ones. Good beer, worth drinking. (On tap at Stub and Herbs, Minneapolis, MN) 8-3-7-4-15: 3.7 // Re-rated on June 8, 2009 at Blue Door Pub, St. Paul. Didn’t have the shine of the citrus and spice, felt a bit thin, but still basically enjoyable. 7-3-7-4-14:3.5

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

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.

On tap at Happy Gnome. Pour is clear golden with no visible head. Musty, lemony, doughy, herbs, and grass notes in the aroma. Taste is biscuit, straw, light pepper, somewhat musty, Belgian yeasty, and cracker malty. Light body with high carbonation. Nothing wrong with it, just uninspiring.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a lightly hazed pale gold that eventually clears with a thin, short-lasting white head. Pleasant aroma of Belgian yeast, white sugar, and a bit of spice. The flavor is similar with some white sugar sweetness. Mild bitterness at the finish. Medium body. A bit sweeter than I think most people would prefer for a saison, but I was ok with it.
