2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cool name, reminds me of my dog. The dog on the bottle even lays like mine. Clear light gold with light carbonation. A very temporary white head. Nose is hop, yeast, and adjuncts. A disappointing beer. Not a farmhouse as the bottle says. Feels more effervescent than it appears. Tart with some honey, lemon, corn. I will remember the bottle and the name but not the beer.

Bottle poured to glass Clear yellow brew with a lot of bubbles relasing from the sides and bottom of the glass. Pungent sweat smell and sharp hop aroma. Sour tasting brew with a quick sour hop finish. Small white head that disipates quickly.

12oz bottle. I was a ’little’ excited when I saw this; a Farmhouse Ale, must be a new saison for me. Alas, it was not to be seeing htat this is a Golden/Blond Ale. Poured a medium and cloudy yellow color with almost no head. Aromas of grains and some citrus. Tastes of the same.

grainy pale lager aroma maybe a hint of butter, but nothing particularly exciting, and a cloudy gold appearance under a small white head. flavor is slightly tart/soured and metallic with a touch of lemon. grainy aftertaste. i have to admit the flavor is interesting and it’s worth trying if you find a single.

Light yellow and quite cloudy. Cold bottle. Very little aroma in a regular pint glass. Mouth is full and kind of soft. Bread and sour are the predominant flavors with perhaps a little citrus. This beer is an ok lawnmower beer a bit more interesting than the average American premium ale.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
11.6 oz bottle (why not give me 12?) Heavily carbonated with a crisp mouth feel. I’d prefer it to have a smoother feel. Tastes of grain/bread and light citrus but does not linger.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Served right out of the tall beer fridge and served in a small snifter. Lemon and grassy hops are dominant in the aroma with a backing of light pils malt, maybe a hint of candi sugar. There is an omnipresent sourness or tartness that seems a bit out of place. Initial taste is sweet, lightly kilned malt, some sort of slight adjunct, some fresh citrus, and a slight spice. Citrus persists into the finish. Itís certainly a refreshing beer and somewhat tasty. It seems like a saison with out the saison yeast. I appreciate the attempt here, but why not shoot for an authentic farmhouse ale?

I read Farmhouse Ale on the lable but in reality itís realy crappy wheat beer. At least thats the closest thing I could think of. Donít waste your money on it.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2008 Pours a pale yellow with a fluffy head. Aroma is sour, a bit funky at first, but settles. Thereís also some grain, some corn, some grass. Taste is bready, very earthy. Also watery. Light body, lots of carbonation, but overall kind of disgusting.
