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.

Shaker pour @ moto-i. This has been one of the most disappointing beers I have had in a while. It is a piss macro-yellow with a thick head. It is way too clear and way too light of a color. Aroma is banana esters and overly sweet Belgian aspects. Especially for a beer like this, its too light to be this sweet. Taste is too sweet, the esters are too strong for the rest of the beer as well. It has a strong mineral feel and an overly tingly carbonation. I feel something good can be made with this beer but this isnít it right now.

Pours a semi-clear golden straw blonde brew with a slow dissolving white head that leaves behind a nice spotty lacing and a thin white ring. Bottle Aroma of yeast, a touch of banana esters, some light cloves, and a hint of white bread malt. Taste is light to medium bodied with some carbonation with flavors of dry white bread malt, banana esters, cloves a touch of bubblegum, and dry herbs. Finish is semi-dry with a fast disappearing herbal spice aftertaste. Remember to allow this saison to come up to room temperature to get the full flavor and aroma. Love this Saison

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with white head. Straw, yeasty, malty aromas. Spicy, straw, yeasty, citrus flavors. Very solid saison.

Bottle at Marx, Stillwater. Canít believe Iíve never rated this as Iíve had it a number of times. It was a favorite among beer aficionados and non during our groomís dinner in Stillwater a couple of days ago. Murky, light orange with a quickly dissipating head. An excellent, easy drinking saison. Most true to style beer Iíve had from Lift Bridge.

Has a very light wheat/bread scent, and pours a light golden color. Has a nice Belgian taste to it. Very drinkable and would be good in the summer.

Clear yellow in color... Aroma of light grains, bananas and cloves... Flavor is more akin to a Belgian wit, lots of cloves, citrus, earthy grains...light yeasty finish... Decent, had way better

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.

12oz. bottle to my favorite snifter. Aroma is... I not sure I canít get much out of it. Some wheat honey and faint citrus and flowers very faint. Appearance is great murky gold yellow with minimal head and lacing. Taste I feel like I have a Blue Moon in my hand. A lot of wheat honey and citrus in the tasat with dry finish. Palate is thin and dry with little fizz. Overall I think its like drinking a Blue Moon which really isínt my thing anymore, It is definitly not bad a very drinkable beer.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 16, 2010
12oz bottle courtesy of buebie. Pours a very light and very clear yellow with a small bubbly white head that recedes slowly to a solid collar but leaves no trace of lacing. The aroma is slightly sweet with some green apples and apricots on top of grass and Belgian yeast spiciness. The taste is light and almost watery with some grassy hops up front and apples and pears following closely. The finish is dry and very much like a pilsner honestly. In fact, the whole thing tastes more like a pilsner than a saison now that I think about it. The mouthfeel is light bodied and extremely crisp and clean for the style. Itís got very little spiciness that I would expect in the style. This is a solid and very drinkable beer but I donít think itís really great for the style, as it offers very little complexity.
