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.

Guest tap at Emmettís, 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.

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 didnít dig this one all that much.

[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.

Indra (2711) - 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 Iíve had before!

AWISLguy (2326) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 15, 2012
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.

StefanSD (2324) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2011
12 oz bottle I picked up at the pig. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small white head that has good retention. The aroma is slightly spicy with white pepper and some fruity grains(Belgian Pils?). The flavor is complex and features white fruits, pears, apples and apricots giving way to peppery hops and nutty yeasts. Somewhere in there is a bit of biscuit. The palate is medium with lively carbonation. Finishes incredibly long and dry with lingering pepper. Overall: Wow, xcellent saison, I loved it.

UPDATED: MAY 18, 2016 So, it is kind of a big complex big yeasty flavored thing and kind of a not complex sweet very fizzy thing. Fruitiness in either case, not sure if it was rather good or not so good. Serving: Bottle

I didnít think this beer was too complex. A lot of flavors kind of blended together. Not bad.

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 donít 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 doesnít all come together all that well. On the other hand, it is far from a disaster.
