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

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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy orange amber with a creamy off-white head. Slightly sour fruity aroma. A pungent spicy kick to the flavor with a perfumy aromatic character that is unique, but not necessarily pleasant. Lacks the tart brightness of a good farmhouse ale. Too highly carbonated.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very very mediocre farmhouse. Still easy drinking and refreshing, and there is something to be said for that.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle pours an almost clear red/amber with moderate white head and some lacing. Aroma has banana, spices, rye, and vanilla. Body is medium with average carbonation and a lively mouthfeel. Easily drinkable with nothing wrong, but far from one of the great saisons.
