3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle as part of a variety pack. Orange brown color with a very slight haze and a creamy white head. Spicy yeast aroma with a hint of sugars. Flavor is more spice with a yeasty bite and a bit of creamy malt to smooth it out at the end. Light-medium bodied with a smooth palate. I don’t normally like farmhouse ales but this one goes down pretty nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Guest tap at Emmett’s, Downers Grove. Autumnal brown with a one-finger parfait head. Spicy wassail nose, a bit of fig and yeast, too. Malt and mouthfeel is light, but it has a dose of caramel roast, augmented by coriander, sage, and some European hop backbone. Touch of cider at the end. Goes down very easily.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle as shown. On that topic, I love the bottle design. It’s a sort of joke, or a sad, dual personality flop. On the one hand, there’s a bland label, something that may get produced from the Microsoft "Beer Label Making Wizard," if there were such a thing. On the other hand, there’s a name that’s starved for attention. "Booyah," set it down with a *thud*. So which personality will the beer itself have? Thee label or the name? Unfortunately, the beer matches the personality of the lame label design. It’s bubbly, run-of-the mill, fruit and citrus flavored saison. Subtle fruit aroma, orange color. It’s easy drinking, but nothing to recommend to others.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Chancery in Mequon. Pours orangey brown with little head and leaving little lacing. Aroma has some floral fruit and some earthy old beer store. Taste is of spice, including some coriander, and some citrus fruit with straw. Finishes fairly quickly and dry. An easy drinker on a hot day and about what I was expecting as a "saison". More earthy than I would have hoped.

Aroma is mildly spicy yeast, cream and a hint of fruit and malts. The flavor is citrus, berries/grapes, a hint of spice and a tart and malty finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Old Fashioned, pours a clear golden with a thin head, the aroma has some fruity touches and yeast, the flavor has a ton of barnyard funk with must, kind of dirty tasting, really didn’t dig this one all that much.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Decent beer. Spicy and citrus notes. Wheat style which I don't like too much. For the style this is probably good

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark gold color. A smell of belgiany yeast. Served at 60 degrees, I can appreciate the beer but the Belgian smell is a little too much for me. It’s a simple beer that may need a little more temperature control.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer has so many tastes coming at you. Some of them dont seem to mix with each other. But pretty good on a hot day like today.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle into a 16 oz. snifter. Pours copper/orange with frothy head that dissipates somewhat quickly. Earthy, saison-appropriate aroma with hints of citrus. Medium-full body with some bitterness lingering.
