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.

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.

Slightly cloudy yellow. Yeast lactic smells lemon citric. Tastes of funk dust yeast bananas barley. Some pleasant lactic mouthfeel. Slightly watery but a great light saison.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2011 Poured from bottle into Tulip. Hazy, very pale yellow (Wit-like). Very active with bubbly head and some nice lacing. Champagne-like bubbles. Aroma of citrus, clove, pepper, banana, overall sourness. Orange peel, coriander, cloves, wheat malt, slightly tart. Once again, seems very much like a Witbier. Relatively high carbonation, light body. Pretty dry but not as dry as other Saisons. Nice, refreshing, easy-to-drink Wit, I mean Saison. Doesn’t matter, it is a solid, thirst quenching brew. Looking forward to trying their other beers, such as the 55 IBU Pale Ale with grapefruit zest (Crosscut) and the Lingonberry infused Tripel (Minnesota Tan). Nice to have another Minnesota brewery. Welcome!

Nice vivid saison, with some spiced funk. Good gold with aggressive white head that becomes rocky. Drinks easy with slight complexity.

Sweet nose. Light head light lacing. Citrus palate. Kinda of a hot summer day beer.

On tap at The Red Goat in Cokato, Minnesota. A very decent saison. More detail later...

Not much in the pour - flat, clear and thinly carbonated. Aroma of goat cheese. Flavor is more full than appearance and nose would lead to believe. There is almost a baked quality to it. Not tart and easy on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An interesting beer that reminds me more of a wheat or witbier than a real Belgian saison. Pours a very light golden color with little to no head. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Complex aroma with spice and fruit notes. The flavor has some orange peel, some coriander, some underlying maltiness. A bit thin in palate and finish. Nice to see Minnesota brewers trying something new, but this one falls a bit short of memorable.

Sweet smelling. Tart up front, a little spice going down, and a smooth, bready, earthy taste. Low-medium carbonation, pleasant aftertaste. Very drinkable, and surprisingly good.
