1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle in a taster pack. 5.2%. What on earth is this? Label says farmhouse ale, and I pour a cloudy yellow witbier looking creature into a glass, with a cap that disappears far too quickly. Aroma is barley, butter, and corn. Taste is sickly sweet, apples, grains and mild honey. No yeast and no hops leave this beer without a stylistic foot to stand on. Not that itís worth defining...

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle 9/8/09-Pours a hazy orangish yellow with a small white covering for a head. Aroma of butter and spices. Taste of the same with a bit of sweetness and honey along with more butter and spices. This light bodied beer is not bad but definitely not a farmhouse.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Poured a dark yellow color with a small white head that practically disappears. Aroma is sweet, with touches of caramel, honey. Itís relatively plain, but it was perhaps one of the more interesting beers that was at my disposal when I was consuming beverages. Certainly wasnít "farmhouse" which Iím eternally grateful (not a fan of that style) - oh well, most people are more harsh when theyíre rating towards a perceived style instead of the beers merits (or lack thereof).

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Appearance: Pours a light, pale yellow body with a real thin, white head. Even some energetic glass swirling canít seem to awaken it. Ah well.
Smell: Light, dull maltiness with some near non-existant floral hints. Then, thereís the butter. Yes, friends, butter. A real "what have I gotten myself into" aroma.
Taste: Light pale maltiness with some sweet cereal hints with, to my extreme dismay, a taste of unsalted butter hot on its heels. Where one might look for some pleasant fruity esters, youíll find only odd, unnatural vegetal hints. Faint floral hops with a low, low, low bitterness. Then, sadly, itís back to the pat of butter until the vaguely sweetish finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Low carbonation. Limp, thin mouthfeel.
Drinkability: Bad dog! Very VERY Bad dog! Thatís right, Lazy Mutt, look ashamed! A beer to steer well clear of.

Pours a golden yellow color with a white head. Aroma is caramel, honey, and spoiled something. Flavor is honey, vanilla, and horrible spoiled flavor.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
[Bottle] Sample notes from January 2009. Pours a dark yellow color with a slight haze. Almost no head retention. A pretty sweet aroma includes light caramel and sweet syrup. The taste was much worse than the aroma. Corn, metallic, and wet paper notes were the first few things I wrote down. Light herbal finish. Very high carbonation. Very weird, and not in a good way.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a very drinkable beer. I donít care what the reset of these, "want-a-be beer Naziís" think. I had finished the first beer (out of the kick ass 8 pack) before I had even finished logging on to ratebeer. I drank a second glass just evaluating it and am on my third as I write. Dont know about you...but I think that might mean somethen.

2.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Toasted brown Sugar, maple syrup, chocolate frosting...definitely a briar patch of the sweet spectrum in the nose. Whoops! What happened to the follow up in the mouth??? Bland, bleak and muted. Some baking powder, malt and thatís about all. Finish is sticky and pasty with hints of burnt wood. Over-carbonated as well. Like many Minhas Craft beers, a promising nose leads to total mouth disapointment. A lazy mutt indeed.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
"I was tricked! I thought this would be something out of some new to me brewery but it turns out that I was very wrong...
Poured out a cloudy yellowy gold brew and a small ammount of white head....THAT DIDNíT LAST! A saison should have a large cap. This had almost none at the pour, zero minutes after and zero retention or lacing. The aroma is so-so, nothing really bad. Old lemon and a bit of orange hiding behind that, odd spice, barley malt. Quite fruity. The first flavour impression is tart and mild to moderate sourness that blend immediately into a weak lemon / orange taste (nothing to impressive here), some pepper and a chunk of malt....maybe a bit of herb too. This beer has gotten better. Light medium body, ok carbonation, decent tingle on the tongue, finishes on the sour side and fades to lingering malts. Better than it was when I opened it. Still, it is total crap, one of the least appealing beers in a loooooong time. How do I pawn these off? I got 7 more to drink, dammit.
