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.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with an orange hue and an off-white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of spice, flora and sweet grain with a hint of citrus. Flavor has heavy flora and spice with backing sweet grains and light fruit.

dekester1 (336) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2012
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.

Bottle courtesy of nuplastikk, thank you sir! Not much info on the label except "Farmhouse Ale" and the Surgeon General’s warning. Good thing I’m not pregnant. Deep murky orange color, small white head, scant lacing. Aroma or orange peel, light spice, very mild funk. Taste is citrus and light spice. OK.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Draft at Milwaukee Brewing. Pours a hazed deep gold with orange highlights and a fluffy white head that persists. Nose is strange. Not a great Belgian profile, clovey and peppery but also kind of vegetal and banana. Some pilsner malt as well. On tasting, pretty dry and somewhat malty but again the yeast is strange. A weird appley note and some old bananas. Okay but doesn’t really work for me.

Bottle to snifter. Lots of interesting notes on the nose. Lots of fruity notes. Peach, some orange, a little apricot. Lots of soft citrus. Some earthy yeastiness. Gold orange pour with moderate white head. Nice surprise on this beer. I enjoyed it.

Decent beer. Spicy and citrus notes. Wheat style which I don't like too much. For the style this is probably good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

On tap @ the Über Tap Room in the Wisconsin Cheese Shop, Milwaukee. Light amber colour. Lightly grainy and toasty, soft spice, low bitterness. Saison? Strange.
