COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Complex flavors and aromas come from a variety of sources. Barley malt and wheat help create a smooth body and attribute a pleasant golden hue while the addition of malted rye and oats brings out a solid earthy flavor. Czech Saaz Hops help create a citrus nose. What makes this beer truly special is the Saison Ale yeast strain used to ferment this beer. The subtle hints of tangerine, peach and licorice are the hallmarks of this particular yeast.

This is a nice saison; above average. It has a nice peppery nose and a citrus and spice flavor. Cloudy yellow appearance with super carbonation. Got this from Josh N. after the winter beer tasting. 2012.

Bottle. This is a beer I would give to someone new to craft beers. Very smooth but also complex. Orange comes through both in color and taste. I would love to try this again.

MaltOne (215) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Pours a clear, slightly bubbly, red tinged gold, with a medium, finely laced head, disipatesquickly. Earthy aroma, with citrus, banana, spice. Flavor is initially slightly sweet, followed by a noticeable rye note. Medium body. Overall good session ale - the one I go to when at Milwaukee Ale House. The label description is pretty accurate.

bottle. golden with one finger head. strong citrus with slight tartness. light bodied, but decent flavor. virtually no funk, but decent for a cheap beer.

This one poured a hazy golden with a long lasting head. Malt flavors were grainy with a touch of cereal, I assume due to the rye. Hops were indeed citrusy with a touch of herb, making it the great saison/session beer it is. Very drinkable.

beerbaaron (1242) - Arizona, USA - NOV 24, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 Hazy dark amber, frothy, sticky head. flavorful and well balanced, easy drinking. Nice spices. Some sweet some bitter. Not the best and juuust a bit off for the style, but very very good. Nice originality.

Bottle. Pours a hazy apricot with a big fluffy white head. Nose is sugary and lightly cereal. Palate is quite carbonated. Flavors of light sugar sweetness, possibly infected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sharp aroma typical of Saison. Nothing special about the appearance but slightly darker for this style of beer. The rye flavor is neither overwhelming or unpleasant. Clean finish!
