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.

Served on tap @ the Grafton Milwaukee Ale House. Appearance was mid-copper/amber with a nice medium frothy head that slowly diminished. Aroma was of fruit and hops. Taste was a mix of malt, licorice/prune/fruit and moderate hop finish. Palate was nice. Overall, a decent brew but I am not personally into Saisons that much.

Draft at the MKE Ale House. Orange-copper color with thin off-white head and minimal lacing. Fruit and yeast aroma. Fruit and yeast upfront. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber pour with a light beige head. Aroma is a slight funk, yeast fruit. Taste is light fruit, refreshing, palette cleansing. Tasty with nice lacing.

[Bottle] Orange colored pour with a fizzy head on top. Aromas of yeast, floral notes and light spice. Clean flavors of sweet caramel malts, spicy hops, yeasty phenols and lemongrass. Lively carbonation. Sweet and yeasty finish. Good, but not a very complex saison.

RRistow12 (437) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - FEB 2, 2015
Tasted from bottle. Pours a hazy amber with off white head. A little too much carbonation. Aroma is caramel, honey, spices, grains. Taste is moderate to heavily sweet with mild to no bitterness. Not very well balanced. Flavors of caramel, toffee, honey, syrup, spices, earthy notes. Not much of the belgian yeast flavor and too sweet. Below average for style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Indra (2707) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - DEC 3, 2014
12oz. bottle. Aroma of malt sweetness, big yeast profile with notes of honey, caramel, tons of clove, fruity esters, spice and some very faint grassy, herbal hop. Clear medium amber in color, no head whatsoever (although the glass was wet). Flavor profile shows some citrus, caramel sweetness, honey, plenty of spice, grainy malts, toasty and full, bitterness is mild overall, Some tea leaf flavors in the finish, amidst the clove and banana. Carbonation is low, somewhat thin in feel and with a medium body. Not like anything I’ve had before!

Huhzubendah (2999) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 16, 2014
On draft at Milwaukee Ale House. The beer is copper with a small, off-white head. Fruity aroma with some yeast, bread. Too sweet, no funk presence. This is a saison? Odd flavor, some stone fruits and unusual earthy flavors. Not digging this one. And what’s with the name? There’s nothing "Booyah" about this one. Move along folks...

On tap at the brewhouse. The aroma wasn’t too great. Some decent flavors and spiciness to it, but pretty thin.

islay (1493) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 15, 2014
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 6-14-14. Labeled as "MKE Booyah Farmhouse Ale." Fruity, sweet aroma features scents of caramel, orange, lemon, butter, farts, heavy cream just starting to go bad, vinegar, and dust. Some tonic water-like dryness in the aroma. Smells like boozy white grape juice or cheap, strong, Eastern European white wine. A touch of Band-Aid chemical quality to the smell. Pours bronze with a small amount of grayish beige head. Light to moderate effervescence. Nice color. Liquid is mostly clear but with a lot of very tiny suspended particles that create some haze. Herbal, spicy, vegetal, dry taste features flavors of lemon juice, caramel, alcohol, Christmas-y spices (spruce tips, pumpkin spice), pumpkin, black pepper, celery, apple cider, shortbread cookie with caramel or Twix without the chocolate, and spicy meat. Dull, dry aftertaste. Medium body. Frothy in the palate. Unremarkable palate effects. Booyah is a decent beer, but it probably could have used more time in the bottle to develop (I purchased this only about a week ago, and I don’t have any reason to believe it was sitting on the shelf for long). It is enjoyable beyond what this score likely indicates. It seems to have been crafted in a heavy-handed way, without a soft touch. It is also a little sweeter than ideal in aroma and flavor. Ultimately it is more interesting than it is good. There is a lot to it, but it doesn’t all come together all that well. On the other hand, it is far from a disaster.

BeerInHeaven (258) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 7, 2014
pours a murky rich gold with a medium lacy head. There’s some spice in the aroma, like coriander. Must be the licorice. Interesting taste. Complex. Slight citrus with licorice. Creamy mouth feel. Pleasant long finish. A pretty good beer.
