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.

6 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom as part of a six-beer flight. Consumed on 5-30-14. Pours a hazy, pale straw with light beige to off-white head. Fruity aroma features scents of peach and fruit candy cane. The smell also is tart, with scents of apple cider and apple vinegar. Strong aroma. Tart and dry taste features an apple juice element. There is a touch of aspirin tablet acridity in the flavor, but not in a bad way, believe it or not. Light to medium body. Lively, frothy, crisp, and refreshing in the tablet. Overall, this is a solid American saison.

Pour from bottle at Target Field. Not my favorite beer. Strange aftertastes.

On Cask. Light pour with a medium spicy yeasty aroma. Smooth and light fruit flavors accompanied the spiciness. Had a dry finish. Decent.

Originally reviewed: 10/5/09. Pours a very cloudy light gold. Reminded me of a lemonade. There’s a very fizzy white head right away, but this pops away to nothing very quickly. No lace. Smells of pineapple, honey, and sour apples. The mouth is fairly spritzy, but not harsh. Nice tart flavor right away like apples and lemons. Finishes smooth and bready. I like the aftertaste. I expected more of a fruity finish, but I like this. Not a bad beer by any means. I could have a few of these. Quite refreshing.

Bottle(s) from tytoanderso, thanks Ty! Poured a lightly hazy golden-yellow color with a thin, fizzy white head that shrunk to a ring. Aroma of citrus (orange peel, tangerine), light banana, doughy yeast, a moderate spiciness (pepper and coriander), and some light herbal hops. Smooth, lightly tart entry with soft notes of orange and tangerine leads into a moderately sweet, doughy middle with some hints of spice (coriander) that linger into the lightly dry finish where they are paired with some light peach flavors. Moderate carbonation and somewhat spritzy mouth feel. Overall, it’s a solid attempt at a saison, but it lacks that earthy dryness that is present in traditional examples of the style. Still, it’s bad ass you can get it in six packs. Thanks again Ty.

Tap at Mad Capper in Stillwater. Tall and skinny mug appears straw color and slightly hazed with a small head that laces. The aroma was somewhat wheat like and spiced. The flavor was mostly wheaty and white pepper with a medium body. Overall, this is pretty good.

16 oz. can pours a hazy apple juice color with a small dissipating white head. Aroma has Belgian yeast, spices, and orange. Tastes sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Medium body with lively carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Veryt refreshing on a hot day.

Pours a cloudy orange/yellow with only about 1/8th inch of fizzy white foam. Nice and dry, crisp a bit of fruity sweetness. Finishes with some barn yard funk, hay/grass. Decent beer nicely balanced not over spiced. Biggest knock against it is that it’s undercarbed for the style.

12oz bottle. Pours clear golden yellow, barely any head. Slightly sour yeast bread aroma, taste is clear and sour. It’s a bit thin to be a saison, but ok.
