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.

12 ounce bottle as shown. On that topic, I love the bottle design. Itís a sort of joke, or a sad, dual personality flop. On the one hand, thereís 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, thereís a name thatís 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. Itís bubbly, run-of-the mill, fruit and citrus flavored saison. Subtle fruit aroma, orange color. Itís easy drinking, but nothing to recommend to others.

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 donít normally like farmhouse ales but this one goes down pretty nice.

From a bottle poured in a shaker. Pours slightly cloudy ruby. Very malty with an odd juiciness and strangely lacking in spice. Not bad but a little too weird to really recommend.

Great looking beer. Smells fruity and tart. This beer has a bunch of complex fruit flavors and spices, clove and stuff. A little dirty but good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours orange with frothy white head. Citrus on the nose with bits of bready yeast and alcohol. The classic smell of a belgian with some tangerine hints as well. Taste is sweet but also astringent with sour and bitter notes. Finishes dry and crisp to make for a delicious beer

RRistow12 (394) - 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

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2013 Lots of different aromas (spruce and pepper) and tastes (bitter and sour) going on here. Nothing overwhelmingly successful, but in MKE you always appreciate the effort!

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.

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.
