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.

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

Received in a trade from BVery -- Bottle poured into a pint glass, a straw yellow colored beer with almost no head. Smells like oranges and yeast. Flavor is light, effervescent and a little honey sweet. I really like the flavor and the mouth feel.

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. Thereís 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. 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.

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.

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, itís a solid attempt at a saison, but it lacks that earthy dryness that is present in traditional examples of the style. Still, itís 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.

JoePeesie (917) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 3, 2012
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 itís undercarbed for the style.

Tap, golden color with off white head. Slight sweet tasting with hints of malt and spice. Easy to drink but a little bit above average beer.
